Species Notes for this Location:
Upto 1994 a total of eleven exotic (including H. molitrix, A. nobilis, and others) have been introduced into Nepal (Shrestha 1995), since first known introduction of carps Cyprinus carpio (Shrestha, UNDATED).
Management Notes for this Location:
Reduction in native biodiversity: Exotic fish such as carp have been migrated into river systems and reservoirs of Nepal since their introduction in the rice paddies fish culture system. It is feared that in long run exotic may replace indigenous species such as golden mahseer, deep-bodied mahseer and many other endemic species (Shrestha, UNDATED).
