Abstract

Kashmir catfish, Glyptothorax kashmirensis, is a critically endangered fresh water fish species in Asia. Wild populations are severely declined due to habitat loss (breeding and nursery grounds), dam construction, overexploitation and introduction of exotic species leading to an alarming situation, which deserves high conservation consideration. The present paper enlightens the previous work done and recommends conservation actions that should be taken into account towards the preservation of the wild population of G. kashmirensis.
