    Abstract

    Fish availability in the domestic markets of West Bengal had adverse impacts owing to the recent ban on import of Hilsa from Bangladesh. Due to incessant rise in prices of Hilsa, catfish, major and minor carps in the recent past, fish loving Bengalis relied on marine fishes such as mackerel, sciaenids, seabass, Bombay-duck and flatfishes for their consumption. The marine fishes were less preferred by Bengali fish eating population earlier because of their colour and smell.
