A Handbook of Ornamental Fishes of the Brahmaputra Basin

J.N. Das (Author) S.P. Biswas (Author)
Synopsis Ornamental fisheries, especially rearing and breeding of freshwater aquarium fish have gained popularity in India over the last two decades or so. North-eastern India being one of the meg-diversity regions in south Asia, the aquarium fish traders obviously identified the region, especially the floodplains of the Brahmaputra River as ahunting ground for exploitation of endemic and colourful fish species and their export to the far eastern countries. But what is surprising that we do not have a proper documentation or baseline information about the exact number of species currently available in the brahmaputra basin and their ornamental features, rating and compatibility. After all, one requires comprehensive biological informations of the fish and their habitats in order to rearing, feeding and breeds them in captive condition. This handbook on ornamental fishes of the Brahmaputra basin will serve as a baseline data not only for the naturalist but also for the aquarist who would like to venture the world of ornamental fishes.
