Abstract: The present paper highlights the use of 25 plant species for fish poison by the Gond tribe living in the Kawal wildlife sanctuary. Though most people from Gond tribe are engaged in fishing activities, they use their indigenous traditional knowledge to catch the fish by applying plant extracts. The piscicidal plants used by Gonds are arranged alphabetically along with botanical name followed by family name, local name, habit and plant part used.
