Hi Jeen,

This is definitely not off my knowledge. But a quick google search reveals that it is a Barilius or hillstream trout. Here's a good reference to this fish:

Really a looker of a fish. What stunning beauty. Other than the yellow spotted reef cod (Picture is somewhere on this forum) the most beautiful fish caught in wild.

Regards,

Ali.

Hypselobarbus sp. (possibly H.thomassi or H.curmuca)

Very interesting...

As per the annual report, published by the National Bureau of Fish Genetic Resources, Lucknow, Chalakudy river is perhaps the richest river in fish diversity in India. Out of 71 species of fishes found in Chalakudy, Cyprinids are the dominant group represented by 24 species.

As these are your local haunts, why dont you invest in the book “Fish fauna of Chalakudy River by Rajeev Raghavan, G. Prasad, P. H. Anvar Ali and Benno Pereira.

Regards,

Ali.

Vyas is close, but I'd vouch for Hypselobarbus lithopidus

@ Channabarca ...... :wink: [smilie=coolup.gif]

My guess on the species was just a wild one...The meristics of this genus is quite mindboggling
