  • Would have been good to know

    Would have been good to know the names of some of the small fish species.

  • Good report.But there is one

    Good report.But there is one more reason of declining fish biodiversity from the rural ponds -cleaning out all the so called weed fishes(which are the small fishes only)from the ponds for the sake of 'composite fish culture'-a technique adopted from China and strongly advocated by Indian Fishery scientist about three decades ago. This cultural practice has almost wiped out the small fish fauna from our village ponds.Now they have perhaps realized their folly but it is already too late.
