Can anyone help me with this. I am tired of calling them the big one and the bigger one. (HAHAHA)

Seriously, it would be great to know the local name and the real name of the fish we end up meeting. Like yesterday we asked a bloke about the fish stocked in a pond. He had names but we didn't recognise any except catla.

Which are the sites to visit. there are a out out there but very few with the local names.
