Giant Mottled Eel (Anguilla marmorata)

Series of elevation illustrations of the Giant Mottled Eel

The Giant Mottled eel (Anguilla marmorata) is not just the most widely distributed of the eel but also among the largest species. It is also called marbled eel and belongs to the family Anguillidae. The giant mottled is national to Indo-Pacific and adjacent freshwater environments. Like most eels, it is catadromous and distinguished from other eels by its mottled complexion, teeth patterns, and long dorsal fin. A protruding lower jaw, well-developed pectoral fins, and cylindrical body enable the fish to live at the belly of fresh and brackish water. Interestingly, its sex glands do not grow in freshwater but as they move to river mouths.

Giant Mottled Eels have a total length between 59”-79” (1.5-2 m) and body height of 3.5”-5.1” (9-13 cm). The typical weight of the Giant Mottled Eel is in the range of 44-62 lb (20-28 kg). Giant Mottled Eels have lifespans between 20-40 years.

Eels are usually bony fish or ray-finned fish grouped under order Anguilliformes. These animals are nocturnal, predators, migrate, and most species lack scales. Eels are elongated fish that lack the pelvic and pectoral fins with the dorsal and anal fins fused to form a single ribbon along length.
