Hi Guys,

Last June while foot loose and spinning around the coast of Gokarna ( Konkan)we stopped at an Island to get some drinking water. On the Island we met an old fisher man who kept 3 Barras in a small pool fed by a trickling stream. Says he got the fish in a casting net a couple of years ago . They were 3” when he caught them and now abot 8 to 10 lb each! He let us hand feed them . It was a great experience and rare chance to see these excellent fish feeding at close quarters.

Hey Jeen,
Great stuff as usual... Awesome pics.

Cheers,
Madhur.

PS. Viper... I think the barra can exist in fresh water as well.. (just my 2 cents worth.)

Nice one Jeen.

Baramundi can survive in fresh water. We here in Powai use to have Bara but they are gone now. We are releasing 25K fingerling of the same this year. Hope to make Powai Bara destination within few years.

Regards,

Ali

Barramundi can live in freshwater. The barra I caught were in fresh.
We also have a place here in Florida that has stocked ponds with them.
I have yet to fish it, but hear the fish are now in the 5 to 7kg range.
My biggest so far is 24.3lbs (11kg)

Nice pictures mate. Barra is actually a brakish water fish and thats the reason it can stay alive in fresh as well as salt water. I recently saw an artificial barra pond and to my greatest surprise also saw some amazing surface feeding with the usual splash sounds. I was happy to hear the bursting crackers. Anyways happy fishing and thnks for sharing the pics.
