|Abstract:||Studies on fish attractant especially in fresh water fish are very scanty. Tribal people, who practice fish attractant against the escapement of fish during inundation of ponds during flood, mainly inhabit the Karbi-Anglong district of Assam. This fish attractant is made from locally available ingredients such as rice bran, oil cake, Jubulee, etc. The practice is quite popular among the fishers in Karbi-Anglong. On verification of the efficacy of this indigenous method, it was observed that as many as 70% of fishes remain in the pond after flood.|
