Fish Species or Varieties Available then ?
A number of the fish species are no more or nearly extinct. Maybe they are available in some other areas of Bengal basin where water in the lowland paddy fields are assured. But these areas do not represent the major and overall scenario in our area of West Bengal, India. Some local fishes have vanished. I am trying to find their scientific names so as to ascertain whether they have disappeared from the face of this earth or not ! Till then I am sure that some very important species have disappeared from our locality. They are my childhood memories and nostalgia! Such experiences is true in the cases of people who have seen life over 4 – 5 decades.
