Author(s): Bipu Khajuria, Seema Langer

Abstract: A detailed survey was conducted in some tributaries and streams of River Ravi and River Chenab during the period from March, 2012 to Feb, 2014 with a view to assess the status of Tor putitora in the Jammu region of Jammu and Kashmir State. The various water bodies scanned so far Tor putitora was recorded from River Tawi, Baba Dhansar stream, Banganga, Anji stream, Pahi stream, Jhajjar stream, Juni, Panjgrain, Duddhar nullah, Gambhir stream, Poni, Sunderbani of river Chenab and Ujh River, Basantar River Tarnah stream, Chadwal stream, Bheni and Ranjit Sagar dam of River Ravi. Over all the maximum percentage of mahseer population is recorded in Anji stream (37.54%) followed by Gambhir stream (34.46%), Pahi stream (34.20%), Ujh river (30.72), & Ranjit Sagar dam. In Jammu, present investigation however, emerges with a view point that Tor putitora is quite abundant in our local water bodies i.e., tributaries of Ravi and Chenab river which are otherwise also bestowed with great number of fish species. Also the effective conservation measures are suggested to sustain Tor putitora in Jammu region.
