    believe this is a red kelah or mahseer hmmm, for cold water wise i believe thats for the northern India golden.
    Whereas the red are mostly from kuching or kalimantan side ( Borneo ) island itself. Temp wise should be similar or slightly lower than ours.

    I heard red mahseer is called "wang bu liao" and is a good eating fish for those from the wild.
    They farm it now too.

    I always tot the ones from west malaysia are the sultan fish.

    The real golden mahseer is from india ya.

    They are pretty similar. The tor tambroides (empurau) and tor tambra (red mahseer) lookalike but can count the number of scale to differentiate them.
    I think both has their line of red mahseer from different river

    Anyway, i ate a 3kd empurau last week, the tail is slight bluish and the tone of colour is different from my red mahseer more of silvery. Somehow i see people eating red mahseer and saying its empurau is think they should taste the same.
    The meat is smooth and might have some earth taste. Those people who say there is a fruity taste must feed them the engkabang (illipe) fruit beforehand. I heard that if you feed them peanuts they will taste a little hint of the peanut taste.

    Sultan fish is another fish and golden mahseer is from india.
