About this book

Language: English

From the introduction:

"In keeping with the necessity for an up to date reference tool on the protozoan parasites of Indian fishes, necessary matters are compiled with an honest effort to provide impetus, hopefully, for greater awareness on the parasites and disease of fishes and for further specific research on the subject. The coverage extends beyond taxonomy to other fields directly referrable to fish-inhabiting protozoa. While doing so we have looked through the Zoological Records up to 1974 and the Biological Abstracts as were available in Calcutta Libraries up to the year 1979. We would request to the readers to invite our attention to possible errors and omissions so that, subsequently, an improved and up dated catalogue can be published.

In spite of our best efforts, some references could not have been consulted in original and cited from Wenyon (1926) and Bhatia (1938). But we have made it a point to arrange and classify both protozoan parasites and the host fishes, according to their systematic position. In the species-catalogue originally cited host names are given while in the host-catalogue the same has been put within parentheses if found incorrect, under valid host names. Thus one would get both valid and originally cited host name by going through both species and host catalogues."
