Status of inland fisheries

The historical landings trend by weight, value and major species from 1990 to 2002 are
shown in Table 3 and 4. According to Inger & Chin(2002), Sabah has 168 species of
freshwater fish species. The major freshwater fish species of commercial value caught and
sold in the markets are giant freshwater prawn (Macrobrachium rosenbergii), ikan patin
(Pangasius spp.), lampam sungai (Puntius spp.), ikan tapah (Wallago maculatus), ikan
baung (Mystus sp.), ikan lais (Kryptopterus sp.,) ikan kokok (Leiocassis spp.,) marble gobby
( Oxyeleotris marmorata), Snakehead (Ophicephalus spp. ), tilapia ( Tilapia spp. ), catfish
(Clarias spp. ) and ikan pelian (Tor duoronensis )

However, it is sad to say that the landing from the inland capture fishery are fast declining
mainly due to habitat destruction from logging activities, pollutions from extensive
agricultural plantations, overfishing and illegal fishing (poison and electrical fishing).
