Abstract: An indigenous community fishing practiced by the Wancho tribe of Tirap district, Arunachal Pradesh in Tissa river is described. In this practice, fishing was facilitated in the pool zones of the hill stream by making the stream water muddy. Fishes gasping for air in muddy waters is then caught using cast nets operated from indigenous bamboo rafts (4.6-6.1 m long and 1.1-1.4 m wide). The study revealed that community fishing is a part of the cultural heritage of the Wancho tribe of Tirap district. The principle behind the fishing method was found to be deoxygenation of water caused by churning of bottom sediments.
