It supports enriched fish diversity and thus good number of people residing around the Ganga river basin is engaged in fishing to sustain their livelihood. Detail knowledge on fishing gear, crafts and fishing methods in use is very essential for scientific and judicious exploitation and management of fishery resources. Earlier scattered information on indigenous crafts and gears in use for fishing in river Ganga, India has been documented. In the present study, an attempt was made to document the existing indigenous fishing methods along the lower stretch of river Ganga more specifically around Triveni, Hooghly district, West Bengal.
