The Golden Mahseer, a prized Himalayan carp/barbel species, plays a pivotal role as a bioindicator. Like the Bengal Tiger, it teeters on the brink of extinction due to habitat loss caused by dams, river diversions, canals, and inadequate fish ladders. Concerns about its survival resonate with global anglers. Fortunately, community-driven endeavors, like catch-and-release angling, harness the internet and social media to raise local awareness. Amid pandemic challenges, organizations like the Mahseer Trust, local forest departments, dedicated yet often stretched fisheries officers, indigenous guides, and community-owned lodges and camps, remain unwavering in their mission to secure a brighter future for these iconic fish.
