Author(s): AK Bose, Ridhi, S Gupta, VR Suresh and AK Das

Abstract: Hook and line is one of the ancient, cheapest, comparatively harmless and sustainable fishing practices which are in use throughout the world. The present investigation documented an interesting traditional fishing method, ‘Char Kanta’ from Sarni reservoir in river Tawa, which so far remain unexplored and under documented. This fishing technique is unique in nature and is easily practiced by the poor fishers. This fishing method is operated throughout the year in stagnant and low tidal areas of the river and is mainly practiced for catching high market value fishes like Indian Major Carps. It is a low cost fishing technique which supports the livelihood and food supply to the poor fishers.
