About this book

Language: English

Flying fishes are typical members of the epipelagic fish community that inhabits surface waters of the open ocean and inshore areas. The taxonomy of flying fishes is very confusing, especially for those of the Indian coast. Some of their identifying characters are overlapping. Therefore, an attempt has been undertaken to specify more precisely the identifying characters of these interesting fishes. To this purpose, the flying fish holdings at the National Zoological Collection at the Zoological Survey of India, Kolkata, The Andaman and Nicobar Regional Station, ZSI, Port Blair and recent collections made are studied and incorporated in the present work.
