Cirrhinus reba is a commercially important freshwater cyprinid fish which has good demand as a table fish due to good amount of protein, fat and carbohydrate content in its flesh. Recently due to numbers of reasons like over harvesting, loss of habitat and ecological changes in its habitat, populations of this fish species have been declined in their nature. This fish species has already been enlisted as vulnerable species both in India and Bangladesh. Earlier considerable research has been conducted on different aspects of feeding and reproductive biology of this fish species but so far no such consolidated report is available on these two aspects. This review report aims to sum up the so far available information on these particular aspects of this threatened fish species as well as to point out some possible measures that to be considered to promote its conservation.
