Lake Poso Fish

Valuable assets to this world's ancient lake

Getting to know the fish in Lake Poso, Sulawesi.

Partnering with Shoal, we just started our Fish Program in Lake Poso.

We are looking for three Critically Endangered fish endemic to Lake Poso: Duck-billed bunting (Adrianichthys kruyti), “Rosen’s” bunting (Adrianichthys roseni), and Poso bungu (Mugilogobius amadi)
