Status of freshwater fishes in the Kerala region of Western Ghats Hotspot: determining distribution, abundance and threats to data deficient species from ten major river systems
Assess the status of ‘data deficient’ freshwater fishes from ten major rivers of Kerala, since freshwater fishes remain one of the most poorly studied and documented taxa in the Western Ghats. Project will generate baseline information, which will help in systematic conservation planning and action as well as monitoring and assessing the conservation status of globally threatened species of fishes in the Western Ghats
