Abstract

Gonoproktopterus curmuca (Hamilton - Buchanan), commonly known as red-tailed barb or "kooral" / "chundan" belonging to the Family Cyprinidae is an endemic fish in rivers originating from southern part of the biodiversity hotspot- the Western Ghats. The species is potential candidate for aquaculture in the region. Juveniles of G. curmuca enjoys a good market as an attractive ornamental fish, both in India and abroad. This species is categorized as "endangered" based on latest IUCN criteria, due to restricted distribution, loss of habitat, over exploitation, destructive fishing practices and trade for aquarium keeping (Anon., 1998).
