 Greetings!
 We  as  hobbyists,  love  to  keep  rare  and  exotic  aquatic  pets.  But  over  fishing  by  unscrupulous/ignorant  people  make  such  species  vulnerable.  Entire  populations  are  being  decimated.  There  is  a  need  to  compile  a  list  of  endangered  ornamental  native  fish.  Hopefully  this  will  create  awareness  among  the  forum  members  on  what  to  buy  and  what  not  to  buy.  Many  of  our  natives  breed  prolifically  and  are  not  contained  to  a  particular  range.  These  can  be  collected  without  too  much  damage  to  their  numbers.  Even  P.Denisonni  can  be  harvested  with  proper  management.  Some  native  fish  can  be  tank  bred  commercially.
 
 Your  inputs  will  be  extremely  valuable  and  may  save  many  vulnerable  species.
 
 Thank  you

 IMO  the  subject  line  should  read  "List  of  endangered  Native  fish  species  in  India"  and  not  "List  of  endangered  ornamental  fish  species  in  India"   Smile

 I  guess  I  am  not  going  totally  out  of  topic.  But  it  was  last  Sunday  when  I  was  watching  a  program  on  DD-News  regarding  earth  conservation.  
 The  program  stated  that  most  of  the  coral  reefs  around  Kanyakumari  are  being  destroyed  for  the  sake  of  Momento  buyers  and  aquarist.
 It  said  around  100  fish  are  killed  on  catch  of  every  single  ornamental  marine  fish!   Shocked  
 The  fish  catchers  use  dynamite  on  corel  rocks  to  scare  fish  into  the  nest.  Thus  finishing  off  corels  which  took  millions  of  years  to  make.
 At  least  we  at  IAH  should  avoid  buying  fish  caught  through  such  procedures.
 And  even  publish  a  list  of  endangered  species.  So  that  we  could  discourage  traders  trading  in  such  species.

 Who's  gonna  take  census  on  fish  where  there  are  not  enough  people  for  discovery  itself.   Now  talking  about  conservation  of  fish,  firstly,  no  one  would  even  care  about  2-3"  fish  driven  to  extinction  and  secondly,  with  demand  around,  there  will  be  a  lot  of  people  around  to  loot.
 The  best  conservative  measure  will  be  to  avoid  promoting  natives  unless  that  species  breeds  readily  in  captivity.
 And  talking  about  coral  reefs  in  India,  its  only  a  matter  of  time.

 A  list  of  endangered  Indian  Native  fish  is  available  on  the  web.
 
 Search  for  it  and  list  it  here  if  you  are  so  interested.
 
 Warn  members,  and  help  the  fish.
 
 Come  on  guys,  think  before  you  post,  why  should  IAH  with  absolutely  no  resources  go  about  reinventing  the  wheel  again  and  publish  a  list.
 
 If  you  don't  know  how  to  Google,  just  ask  and  you'll  find  more  than  enough  help  here.

 Our  own  Govt  is  not  bothered  ...
 Just  read  this  :-
 
 
 Imported  Algae  Kills  Indian  corals
 
 Fish  Base  has  list  of  All  Freshwater  Fish  Found  in  india  and  then  you  can  filter  on  Endangered  and  can  also
 try  Red  List

 I  think  Himalayan  Mahasher(Tor  putitora)  &  Golden  Mahasher  is  certainly  an  endangered  species.

 Here  is  the  List  of  Critically  Endangered,  Endangered,  Vulnerable  and  Data  Deficient.  List  of  All  Fresh  Water  Native  Fishes  Of  India,  Out  of  which  one  has  to  find  out  which  are  ornamental  fish.  The  Data  on  this  List  is  sourced  from  Fishbase  and  then  reformatted  for  use.  This  is  a  Google  Spreadsheet  and  has  Four  Sheets  
 1.CR  -  Critically  Endangered

 This  can  also  be  down  loaded  and  used  as  well.

 This  is  not  a  complete  list  and  needs  to  be  verified  with  recent  data  available  but  will  at  least  act  as  a  pointer
 
 Regards
 
 Sujoy
 
 PS  :-  One  can  also  use  the  RED  LIST  at  :-

 And  we  go  and  promote
   
 Discus,
 flowerhorns  etc  etc
 
 and  discourage  those  who  advise  against  it,
 
 sad  world  for  those  who  promote  natives  and  breeding  them.
