Paper chromatography in fish taxonomy

Viswanathan, R and Pillai, V Krishna (1956) Paper chromatography in fish taxonomy. Proceedings of the Indian Academy of Sciences, 43 (6). pp. 334-339.



The correct identification of species is of primary importance to the fishery biologist in his task of assessing the composition of any fishery stock. Conventional taxonomic methods are undoubtedly of great value for this purpose but they have their limitations especially when the specimens under study are too small or when geographical and other factors, unidentified as yet, complicate the picture. Very often the discontinuity in morphological features may not be adequate or the recognition characteristics may be insufficient and in these cases information might well be supplemented by additional methods.
