Author(s): Gita Bhusal and Prabha Chitrakar

Abstract: The Roshi-khola flows in mid hill region of Kavrepalanchok district of Bagmati zone of Nepal. The present investigation was carried out to understand baseline information of hill-stream fishes and fishing implements of Roshi-khola during January to June 2016. The sampling station was visited three times during the March, April and May. Various fishing gears such as home made net, mosquito net, thunche, etc. were used for fish collection. Hill stream fishes comprising two orders, three families and five genera were collected from an altitude of 2000m. Altogether five species two from Cyprinidae, two from Cobitidae and one from Siluridae were collected and they were as Schizothoraichthys labiatus, Schizothorax plagiostomus, Schistura beavani, Schistura rupecula and Glyptosternum maculatum. It was found that the local community and government are not enough caring for the conservation of hill stream fishes in the Roshi-khola so, conservation and management principles of hill stream fishes need to be encouraged.
