Recent advances in inland fisheries research

By B S Bhimachar


T inland fishery resources of India are vast and varied. There is an extensive\ud river system all over the country with a vast network of irrigation\ud canals, reservoirs and tanks. There are, in some areas, large numbers of\ud swamps, bheels and ponds. There are also vast brackishwater lakes and\ud extensive estuaries. In addition to these water resources in the plains, there\ud are in the Himalayan region and some parts of South India a number of\ud lakes and hill streams at high altitudes. All these waters support a variety\ud of good species of fishes.
