Over 70 per cent of the earth's surface is covered by water and inhabited by some of the oldest life forms on earth - fishes. In Fishes of India, B.F. Chhapgar gives us an insight into the fascinating world of fishes. Easy to read and fully illustrated, this book describes the form, habits, and habitat of over a hundred varieties of fishes commonly found in India. The kinds of fishes described include catfish, seahorses, perches, flatfish, and anglerfish, among others, as well as sharks and rays, and the tinymudskippers. The book also includes a note on the uses of fish, a glossary, and an extended list of the common, scientific, and vernacular names of fishes. Part of the 'WWF-OUP Nature Guides' series, Fishes of India has been especially designed for our younger readers, but will appeal equally to older readers including parents and teachers, as well as nature lovers.
B.F. Chhapgar is a marine biologist with over fifty years' experience. He has been curator at the Taraporevala Aquarium, Mumbai and Research Officer at the Taraporevala Marine Biological Station. He has also worked for the Department of Fisheries for over twenty years.
