The Spottail Needlefish or Strongylura strongylura in Thailand is found in marine and brackish environments throughout Thailand in addition to the Persian Gulf, Pakistan, India, Southern China and Australia.
The spottail Needle fish is a carnivorous fish which subsists on a diet of small fish, in particular clupeoids.
This species can regularly be seen in the upper layers of tidal rivers in Thailand actively hunting close to the surface.
