Hey Owen,

Sorry to throw a spanner in the works [smilie=fixtit.gif]
but the fish u carrying is a rohu and not a mirgal..

Difference : :roll:

A rohu is more on red in colour and the mouth is round in shape.
The mrigal has a longer and slimmer body and the colouring is of a yellowish white. The mouth is in the shape of a clown-frown. It will also have "whiskers" (for want of a better word) on the side of the mouth.

No hard feelings :lol: ..... Seriously

:twisted:

[quote="Gavin Ridge Cooke"]Hey Owen,

You could be right Gavin, but you will find that the Rohu in the Kaveri come in various colours and hues. The fish that i am holding is much leaner than the usual Kaveri Rohu and the fins especially the tail fins much longer and forked than i have seen on the rohu. I did not notice any barbles on it so you may be right. But i was told by Basavaraj the guide with me, that it was a mirgal.
By the way that is Munswamy in the background.
(Where the hell is the donkey story mate???) :lol:

Hi Gavin,
Your version will be accepted after you go out and catch a sizeable rohu and mirgal and post it on this forum, showing us the differences. :roll:
Now no going to the fish market down your street and photographing one please. :lol:
My wife can make out the difference :mrgreen:

Owen

You know what they say "Size does not matter"

So go out and catch one or two, size does not matter its how you get them..

By the way I am expecting some Smart Alec to come up with "no one's told me that" trust me I've got that reply...

To add my four annas, there is also a distinguishing feature between the Rohu & Mirgal, in so much as the body of the mirgal is slightly tilted upwards towards the tail, while the rohu is pretty straight all through.

But i have some confusion with the next picture, which is of a fish from the Kaveri. To me lit ooked like it was from the cirrhinus family, but Gavin says it is a Rohu. Tell me what you guys think.

And the next is definately a rohu (the second one that we caught weekend before last). These guys are easy enough to identify.

We need to start up a seperate thread on Identifying Indian fish species with positive identification methods to distinguish between them.
The problem in India, is that the same fish is called by different names in almost every state by locals, so you cannot be very sure of a positive id, unless more scientific methods like scale count etc are checked and matched,and anglers start keeping records of the same.
Regards
Owen

Yup Stevie, 402 species here ... And we also got the "Missing Link".. heard the bugger is in Bandra somewhere. You can call him @ 9820287872.. Real social guy but spent over 15k each on two fish.. Like the saying goes " more money than .... "

now regarding the confusion with the first pic and the fish... THAT IS A ROHU !!!!! :evil: Bugger the species.. But thats a red-blooded, red coloured, very tasty ROHU !!
