Abstract: The state of Arunachal Pradesh is known for its rich bioresources and ethnocultural diversity. Ethnobiological survey was conducted during 2001-2003 in Hill Miri dominated districts of Arunachal Pradesh, which reveals their hidden Indigenous Knowledge System. Fishing and hunting is one of the major economic activities of this hilly tribe apart from Jhum cultivation. They derive their fish protein diet requirement directly from the wild sources. Two major rivers and number of its tributaries form ideal site for fisheries activity. A total of 21 plants significant for ethnofisheries have been listed. Twelve plants are used as ethnotoxic (Fish Poison) and rest 9 species are used in different ethnofisheries techniques and gears.
