Anguillidae - Freshwater Eels
The family Anguillidae contains a single genus, Anguilla. There are about 20 species worldwide with four species known from Australia.
|Anguilla australis||Southern Shortfin Eel|
|Anguilla marmorata||Giant Mottled Eel|
|Anguilla reinhardtii||Longfin Eel|
As its name implies, the Freshwater Moray also lives in freshwater, but it is classified in the family Muraenidae, not Anguillidae.
