Did you know that suckerfish can attach themselves onto other fishes to get a free ride? Or that the markings on the young Koran fish resemble the sacred inscriptions of the Koran? How 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 fishermen! Fishes of India introduces us to the little known world of fishes, both fresh water and marine, found in India. Over 130 varieties are described in detail through numerous line drawings and photographs. A colour section on fishes gives us an unusual insight into their natural habitat. Sections on the uses of fish, a glossary, and a list of the common, scientific, and vernacular names of fishes provide additional information for interested readers.
