Abstract

This study was carried out to document the community structure of tetraodon fish in coastal and mangrove areas of Lundu, Sematan, Asajaya and Kota Samarahan in September, October, November, 2014 and March, April, 2015. Habitat preference of the fish was identified based on the variety of Tetraodontidae species found in different locations. The feeding behaviour of Tetraodon species was evaluated based on the Gut Relative Index (GRI), food composition and frequency of occurrence of food items in the fish gut. A total of 42 fish samples were caught. This included four Takifugu oblongus, 24 Tetraodon nigroviridis, six Lagocephalus lunaris and eight Xenopterus naritus. About 22 fish gut content were observed. The results of food analysis showed that major food items were molluscs (38.00%), crustacean (29.00%) and fish skeleton (11.00%).
