Anabas cobojius, the Gangetic koi (Bengali: কই মাছ), is a species of climbing gourami native to India and Bangladesh, where it occurs in many types of standing water bodies. This species reaches a total length of 30 cm (12 in) and is carnivorous, feeding on water invertebrates and their larvae. It is of commercial importance as a food fish in its native range. In addition to being fished, it may be threatened by siltation from deforestation and agricultural activities, pollution and habitat change by hydropower and dam development. The exact population is unknown but it spawns once during rainy season from May-July.
