Sorry I haven't been posting the last few days, been mad with work. Trying to stack up articles for the magazines to cover them while I'm in India! Also right on the verge of releasing first bunch of DVDs, but that's giving sleepless nights.

Anyway.

A mate of mine is coming out last week of March to have a fish in malvalli etc. He is the leading fishery scientist in the UK and his wife is expert in pollution control.
They want to know if they can help with any issues like:
Classifying fish in the Kaveri
Giving you guys easy tips for recognising fish
Strategies for dealing with pollution of rivers
How to prevent habitat loss or how to re-establish habitat
Understanding fish behaviour
Giving access to other agencies or individuals, who could help with any issues you feel need to be adressed.

I'm thinking we should hold a meeting/forum over a couple of days. Perhaps Day One we will look at the World Championships idea, Day Two hand over to Mark and Jake and look at fisheries and environment.

More ideas anyone...

Not in this case hawkeye! Look closely and you will see that the swellings are at different positions on both flanks.
Some experts say that it is due to poor handling of the fish when they were earlier landed without a landing net and landing mat, due to which they could have suffered some internal injuries & broken bones. But they can live with that.
If that is the case, we have a lot to learn about fish handling in India.

I'm sure Mark would give a much more informed guess than I can...

It looks like it has a severe deformity, which could have been caused by poor handling. Usually, when a fish has been mistreated it would die from its injuries.
Some fish are born with these kind of deformities, so it may well be living a perfectly happy life.
My guess is; some kind of internal parasite, that has caused swelling in some of the vital organs. But that is a guess by an unqualified layman looking at a picture, not the live (or dead) sample.
I suspect that, were that the case, even an expert would need to kill the fish and do a post-mortem to find the definitive answer.

Perhaps Vagabond has some light to shed on this?
