English abstract

Our freshwater fish diversity is poorly studied. There is no proper documentation on freshwater fish resources of India. Due to irrational fishing practices, environmental aberrations like reduction in water volume, increased sedimentation, water abstraction, and pollution over the years this diversity is on a decline. The paper highlights some features and impacts of erosion of this biodiversity. To save this diversity and to develop a sustainable fishery practice in the country proper documentation leading to Freshwater Fish Diversity Information System is an urgent need. Some components of databases for information system development and documentation have been suggested. For standing up to this negative phenomenon a coordinated effort is needed.
