An Outspoken Individual--One member of a tightly packed school of Striped Catfish, Plotosus lineatus, seems to have lots to say. This species forms large schools as juveniles, becoming gradually more solitary as adults. Like all catfish, they deter potential predators with venomous spines in dorsal and pectoral fins. Mergui Archipelago, Myanmar/Burma, Andaman Sea, Indian Ocean
