 @  Balaji  :  thanks.
 
 @  abhis  :  The  W.attu  is  a  dangerous  fish  and  can  inflict  wounds  on  even  grown  humans.  Also  it  will  eat  up  all  the  
 other  fish  in  the  pond.   W.Attu's  are  know  to  grow  upto  8  feet  or  so.  There  are  a  couple  of  pictures  in  the  native  fish  
 forum.

 Proof  of  either  of  the  above???  I  think  its  time  we  stop  demonising  fish  unnecessarily  because  of  a  bunch  of  folklore  or  sensationalist  shows  like  River  Monsters.  The  same  was  said  about  trichomycterids  (Candiru)  but  there  has  been  a  paper  published  since  which  proves  that  the  human  attacks  were  a  bunch  of  badly  cooked  up  stories.  
 
 
 While  overfishing  is  definitely  a  concern,  I  don't  think  we  should  go  as  far  as  suggesting  that  people  should  stop  eating  this  fish.  This  species  has  a  very  wide  distribution  as  opposed  to  other  Wallago    like  W.leeri  which  have  restricted  distributions.

 @  balaji,  when  you  put  it  that  way,  i  guess.  My  observations  are  based  on  reports  of  behavior  in  captive  conditions.  Not  that  i  have  kept  w.attu.  So  in  terms  of  proof  it  is  hearsay.  However  the  NT  rating  is  based  on  huge  regional  fall  in  population  not  all  across  the  habitat.

 Nice  trip  Shiv  and  great  catch   Thumb Up  
 
 A  few  id's  are  a  bit  off  and  if  I  may  correct,  are  as  follows
 
 Labeo  dero  is  Labeo  calbasu
 
 Chitala  chitala  is  Notopterus  notopterus
 
 Barbodes  carnaticus  is  Sytomus  sarana
 
 BTW,  why  did  you  release  the  C.  carpio??  it  could  have  provided  meat  for  the  entire  camp....after  all  it  belongs  to  the  same  category  as  the  nile  tilapia  Wink

 Thanks  marc  for  the  corrections.  Will  fix  it.  The  C.carpio  is  technically  an  invasive,  but  is  locally  accepted  as  a  protected  fish.Guess  they  dont  want  people  to  pretend  T.kudhree's  are  C.carpio  and  eating  them.   Also  i  think  they  are  not  as  big  a  threat  to  the  other  carps  as  the  O.niloticus  are.   may  be  wrong  about  that.  IAC  i  always  prefer  eating  a  cichlid  to  a  carp  Smile  Also  we  caught  8  O.niloticus  for  each  C.carpio  landed.  So  as  an  invasive  it  seems  more  potent.  What  was  pathetic  is  the  fact  that  the  locals  use  dynamite  to  fish  outside  the  PA  as  they  dont  have  techniques  to  angle  or  net  big  carps  in  deep  water  and  land  up  devestating  the  entire  biotope.
