About this book

Language: English

From the preface:

"While working out the fish material of Khasi Hills (Meghaiaya) at the Eastern Regional Station, Zoological Survey of lndia, Shillong during the years 1969 to 1972 l experienced great difficulty in determining the species accurately. This was partly because the material showed a certain amount of unusual variation and partly because the available literature on the Assam region contained very little information on the Khasi Hills. Though Day’s Fishes of India (1878) and the Fauna of British India, Fish series (1889) proved to be the most useful work for identification, I greatly felt the need for an aid to the identification, of regional fish fauna. With this view in mind I have attempled to write this handbook and trust that it would cater to the need ofstudents as well as fishery workers of the area.

I have given taxonomic account of each species, including the remarkable eel-like fish (Family Pillaiidae) and other new species discovered recently, I have purposely given an outline drawing of each species as I believe the illustrations of most species are available in the literature."
