Plotosidae

 

Plotosidae = ( ploh TOE sid dee )

Not a well known catfish family as the majority reside in Australia and New Guinea.

Common name for the 30 or so species in this family are the "eel-tailed catfishes" due to the continuation of the caudal and anal fin around the body. The most common species is the marine or "coral cat", Plotosus lineatus, but the vast majority are endemic to freshwater.
