Chitala ornata (Clown knifefish) The species, also known commonly as a clown featherback fish, occurs in Thailand, Lao PDR, Viet Nam, and Cambodia. It has been introduced to Myanmar and the Philippines for aquaculture. Juveniles are popular in the aquarium trade and large fish are popular for public aquaria. In some parts of the Philippines, its introduction is wreaking havoc on the local fishing industry. symbol,vector,illustration,Animalia,Chordata,Actinopterygii,Osteoglossiformes,Notopteridae,Chitala ornata,tropical,exotic,predation,clown featherback,clown knifefish,spotted knifefish

Storm Timing and Impacts on Chesapeake Bay Flora and Fauna The timing of tropical storms and hurricanes can have major impacts on the life histories of Chesapeake Bay flora and fauna. Changes in water salinity can cause early spawning in some species, such as the blue crab, and increased sediment can cause widespread die-off of seagrasses.   diagram,eco-rythm,storms,chesapeake,tropical,hurricanes,early,migration,timing
