Author(s): Sandipan Gupta

Abstract: Chanda nama is a popular food fish. It has high nutritional value due to the presence of high amount of protein, fat, mineral and vitamin A content. It has also been admired as an ornamental fish and has good demand among the aquarium fish hobbyists. Due to over exploitation and degradation of its natural habitats, recently populations of this fish species are facing the threat of extinction. It has already been documented as vulnerable in Bangladesh and West Bengal, India. So, to protect the populations of Chanda nama, proper measures must be taken on a serious note. The present report has been prepared to summarize the available information on different aspects of Chanda nama along with noting down the possible measures that can be considered for its conservation.
