Mahseer sanctuaries of Meghalaya: A conservation and recreational perspective

This article presents available information regarding the present status of chocolate mahseer and the conservation measures been undertaken in the East Garo Hills of Meghalaya. A total of 54 sanctuaries have been established since 2012 in Garo, Khasi and Jaintia hills under the Meghalaya State Aquaculture Mission project of the Fish Farmers Development Agency. The sanctuaries have been established with the objective to preserve and enhance aquatic biodiversity, protect indigenous fish species, preserve breeding and feeding grounds, and serve as tourist attractions to provide livelihood opportunities.

Breeding striped snakehead (Channa striata) using the concrete tank method in the Cangkringan Area, Special Region of Yogyakarta

The striped snakehead (Channa striata) is a species of swamp fish that has a high economic value. Intensive fishing has reduced the wild populations. Hatchery production of this species has the potential for both commercial aquaculture supportive breeding programmes to conserve fish resources and increase the natural population. Below we describe a protocol we used for controlled spawning and hatchery operations for striped snakehead.

Snow trout fisheries in Arunachal Pradesh of the Eastern Himalayas

Snow trout are known for their economic importance and are recognised as potential species for food and recreation. However, very little information is available on their taxonomy, distribution, biology, habitat and food value. The demand for this group of fish has increased drastically with increasing fishing pressure due to the lack of sustained aquaculture alternatives in this hill locked part of the world. This article describes the status of snow trout fisheries in the snow fed streams, rivers and upland lakes of Arunachal Pradesh, India.
