Kuantan is a great place for anglers world-wide. The seas hold a treasure trove of delicious fish such as Marlin, Sailfish, Yellowfin Tuna, Wahoo, Barracuda, Amberjack and Dorado.
Anglers can charter boats from the beach and fish during the night. On the other hand, the rivers and streams around Kuantan hold top game fish that will satisfy the most hard-core of anglers.
Inland, local fishermen hunt for the prized Red Mahseer or 'Kelah', a powerful freshwater fish that plies clear-water, fast-flowing rivers such as the ones in Endau-Rompin Park. Other quarry includes the ferocious 'Toman' or Giant Snakehead, the quick Hampala Barb or 'Sebarau' and the acrobatic Giant Featherback or 'Belidah'.
