India is also an important country that produces fish through aquaculture in the world. India is home to more than 10 percent of the global fish diversity. Presently, the country ranks second in the world in total fish production with an annual fish production of about million metric tonnes. Comparison with freshwater fish diversity of major river basins of the world. Entire river basins of the Yangtze and Yellow, and more than 97% of the Pearl River are all inside the border of China. Therefore, the total number of freshwater fish and endemic species of these three rivers were compared to those in major rivers of the by:

This contribution focuses on the diversity of fish population and their conservation aspects in the biggest freshwater tectonic Lake Sone (ha) in Assam, India. In particular, India is endowed with rich fish diversity finfish ( freshwater, marine species) 11, even though, since independence, it has accorded a relatively low national priority.

We've got a great selection of angels, plecos, cichlids, livebearers, tetras.

While marine communities contain more species in total, freshwaters are far richer per unit volume of habitat. Here, freshwater fish species occur at one per 15 km³ of water (cf.

one perkm³ of sea water). This reflects the productivity, physiographic diversity and geographical isolation of freshwater habitats (Ormerod, ). There is a good live export market for both the elvers and the adults (Ref. Utilized as food by the tribal people, "Kanis" of Kanyakumari District (Ref.

Highly prized as food fish because of its nutritional value. Fish mucous from live fish mixed with rice or wheat flour is used as medicine for arthritis. Also Ref. Fish species diversity is roughly divided equally between marine (oceanic) and freshwater ecosystems.

Coral reefs in the Indo-Pacific constitute the centre of diversity for marine fishes, whereas continental freshwater fishes are most diverse in large river basins of tropical rainforests, especially the Amazon, Congo, and Mekong : jawless, lampreyshagfish. The Western Ghats (India) is a region of high biological diversity and endemicity of terrestrial fauna, but very little is known about its freshwater species distributions.

Four rivers, Sharavati, Aghanashini, Bedti and Kali, of the central Western Ghats were studied for their fish diversity and composition.

Thus, freshwater habitats appeared as an outlier in the relationships between regional richness, colonizations, and summed time-for-speciation ( Cited by: 5. Below you will find links to lists of freshwater fish from various countries.
