Author(s): Sandipan Gupta and Samir Banerjee

Abstract: Xenentodon cancila is a freshwater fish species, commonly known as freshwater garfish. Though this fish species is not that much popular as a table fish; its acceptability and high demand as an ornamental species among the fish hobbyists have already been reported. Not much research has so far been conducted on food, feeding habit and reproductive biology of this species. The present review aims to consolidate the earlier documented information on feeding habit and reproductive biology of Xenentodon cancila along with pointing out the information gap which to be filled up to sustain its trade as an ornamental fish.
