Observation on the predation by mystus seenghala sykes and wallago attu bloch and schneider of the river kali in north india


Observation on the predation by mystus seenghala sykes and wallago attu bloch and schneider of the river kali in north india



Journal of Environmental Biology 13(1): 47-54



ISSN/ISBN: 0254-8704

The total food intake of both the fish species consisted of mainly fishes viz. Barbus stigma, major carp fingerlings, Trichogaster fasciata, Ophicephalus sp., Rhynchobdella sp., Callichorous pabda, Pseudotropius sp. and Esomus danricus. Other food items viz shrimps, annelids, crabs, odontata nymph, coleoptera grubs and adults. Chironomid larvae and gastropods were of secondary importance as these food items do not form the bulk of the fish diet. Both the fish species were exclusive piscivorous. The effects of predation upon the carp fish stock of the river Kali by the two fish species are discussed.
