9781332298167: An Account of the Fishes Found in the River Ganges and Its Branches (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from An Account of the Fishes Found in the River Ganges and Its Branches

In this work I have described the Fishes found in the Ganges and its tributary streams. Notwithstanding the great variety of species here mentioned, I am persuaded, that the list is far from being complete. For the two last years, indeed, of my stay in India, and while engaged in countries remote from the sea, I met with but few species that I had not before described; but, previous to my departure for Europe, on returning to the vicinity of the numerous and large estuaries by which this enormous river enters the sea, I daily met with species which I had never before seen. Besides, it is probable, that, in the Alpine sources of the Ganges and its branches, there are a good many species which are not to be found in the rivers of the plains, nor in the torrents among the puny hills of the south. During a year's residence, however, near the capital of Nepal, I observed few species that I had not previously seen; but fishing is not a favourite art among the people of that country, so that my opportunities of investigation were not great.
