Skeletal deformities in Bagarius bagarius (Ham.-Buch.) and Crossocheilus latius diplocheilus (Ham.- Buch.) from river Tawi, a Himalayan stream, in Udhampur area, Jammu region, J&K, India


Author(s): SPS Dutta and Assadullah Sheikh

Abstract: An adult deformed Bagarius bagarius showing abnormal lateral curvature between pelvic fin and caudal peduncle regionand Crossocheilus latius diplocheilus having truncated body in anal-caudal peduncle region were seen among fish collections made by fishermen in river Tawi, Udhampur area. Radiograph showed lateral flexure in vertebral column (scoliosis) in Bagarius bagarius and S-shaped vertebral column in Crossocheilus latius diplocheilus. Aberrations in these fishes inhabiting non-polluted segment of river Tawi, in Udhampur,are most probably induced by currents during development.
