Indawgyi Lake in Kachin State, North Myanmar is one of the largest lakes in
Southeast Asia. Based on five times of surveys on fishes of Indawgyi Lake from
2018 to 2023, 4509 specimens of around one hundred species were collected by
an aquatic biodiversity research group led by Dr. Xiao-yong Chen, a senior
expert on fish taxonomy. In this book, 97 species, except a poor known swamp
eel, Monopterus cuchia, two unidentified species, Oryzias sp. and Microrasbora
sp., and a local alien species, tilapia, Oreochromis nilotica, and an imported
cultured fish, common carp, Cyprinus carpio were briefly introduced about
their diagnosis, biology, status, and distribution, as well as photographs of
living or fresh specimens. Well-illustrated and clearly written, this book
will provide some basic information about fishes in this special fauna for
researchers, students, fish lovers, tourists, local communities, and managers
of natural resources.
