Armoured catfish (Auchenoglanis occidentalis) which is shown in this photo is found in the Congo river basin and Zambezi river basin. Starting this year (2012) specimens of the species were collected from the wild for research purpose in an attempt trying to breed this species in captivity. The research takes place at Fiyongoli Aquacultural Research Station
