Fishes of India introduces us to the little known world of fishes, both fresh water and marine found in India. To give an example like Suckerfish can attach themselves onto other fishes to get a ride, some sharks give birth to their young rather than lay eggs, and how anglerfish actually stalk their prey with their stub-like fins and then 'bait' like fisherman!
Over 130 varities are described in detail through numerous line drawings and photographs. A colour section of fishes gives us an unusual insight into their natural habitat. Sections on the uses of fish, a glossary, and a list of common, scientific and vernacular names of fishes provide additional information for interested readers.
