The thread on fish identification interested me - any photos posted would be most welcome.

Is there a book published anywhere that gives illustrations/descriptions of Indian freshwater fish?

Having just got back from Brazil, I found fish identification there quite difficult, especially for the smaller members of the extensive Characin family.

Hi Vagabond,

A friend of mine has such a book. It's a bit early to call him but I will do it later in the day and post the details.

Hi Rustam,

I would be interested as well, please let me know. Also if there is a Salt Water book on Indian Fishes ID...

Currently I use several different books to ID fish, that is why I posted the quiz, it took me a while to ID the fish in that pic..

Hi,

I have 'Freshwater Fishes of Penninsular India' and it's a decent book to start with. Guess it's one of the new books and can be carried along to help identify various species.

Regards,

Mighty Marlin.

Vagabond and Bobby,

I am afraid it turned out to be the same book mentioned by Alexis and Akshay.

A fisheries department boffin had given Prathap the name of a very good book concerning Indian fish but he cannot locate the piece of paper it was written on. All he can recall is the price tag of Rs.4,500/-

Rustam,

4500 ? was it a book on Fishes of India or a general encyclopedia of fish/fishing? (of which i have 2, both under Rs.2000).

Hi Vagabond, my book is the aformentioned Freshwater Fishes of Peninsular India by RJ Ranjit Daniels.

BTW, loved the pics on Anglers Net. I had an ancestor, who was one of the first Europeans to travel the entire length of the Amazon and it is a long term goal of mine to follow in his footsteps.

I've just had the prod I need to get out there!

Many thanks folks - Freshwater Fishes of Peninsular India by RJ Ranjit Daniels. is now on my hit list!

That and the pictures of Indian fishes that you all post up from time to time should give me a start.

Steve, thanks for comment on my Brazil trip. I intend to post up Episode 3 tonight. Found your post on the taxonomy of Mahseer very interesting - I need to think about all that for a few days!

If any one has the above books or buys them, I would be much obliged if they could post details about the quality of the book, with regards to the binding and the photo or illustration quality (especially the fish ID books) I am pretty sure the literature and information will be up to the mark.
