The silver coloured fish below red one looks like sort of mahseer to me and below that is mirgal i suppose..., and other spotted ones are khavlis, the red one is the mangroove jack but im not sure about them entering fresh water and feeding... how did you catch those fishes? did u catch these with net? considering the variety of fishes and their feeding habits you have caught; seems like they were caught by net...
guys please correct me if im wrong...
regards,
dr. prasad

The top ones are Rabbit fish (they have a venomous spine on the anal fin). The next one down is a mangrove jack.
I'll defer to the locals on the other two.
Both Rabbit fish and MJ's will move up into brackish water at times but carp species arn't generally fans of any significant salinity so I would guess that these were all taken a fair way upstream away from the sea.
