Abstract

In the world more than 28,500 finfishes have been recorded so far and among these 2200 species have been reported from India (Anon, 1998). Fish constitute chief source of protein and people living in the catchment areas of different aquatic systems depends on fishes for their livelihoods. There the indigenous traditional knowledge (ITK) brought down has turned them into a repository of self experts in fishery sectors in due course of time. Nevertheless, new methodology has been devised utilising the perception of the fisher flocks in order to determine the conservation status of fish stocks of a particular area.
