The iridescent shark is a shark catfish that is a native to the rivers across Southeast Asia. They are not really sharks, though they do often look very similar to small sharks. They are found over Mekong Basin and the Chao Phraya River areas and used for food there. The fish are marketed as swai in the United States and are very similar to the US catfish.
