Himalayan fish identification

February 17, 2021

Identification of fishes in Himalayan rivers can be challenging. There are many resources and identification publications but many of these are outdated due to more recent taxonomic revisions. This webinar will focus on discussing the most recent and update to date references for identification of Himalayan fish species and will review the key characteristics used in fish identification. The webinar will also cover best management practices in taxonomy and the ‘dos and don’ts of fish identification. The Nepali perspective on fish taxonomy will also be presented. Discussion among participants will be encouraged to highlight which references are currently being used in Nepal and their validity.
