In the past few decades, various riverine ecosystems have endured intense human interventions and natural calamities resulting in habitat loss and degradation, alteration in hydro-chemistry and river geomorphology. The consequences are fast declines of fishery resources in upland rivers and streams.

Possible measures to mitigate the damage and restore ecosystem services in this riverine system are also discussed, as is the various fishing methods and gears and their specificity in the hilly terrain of the central Himalayas. Also included are the systematic and taxonomic features of the fishes of the upper Ganga river system with their colour photos, nomenclature, and descriptive characteristics.
