You r misinformed. Please note dat I have 25fishes or 100, i will qt them and raise them in a small tank only. And i was not alone to take fishes bak home. Also towards d end we stopped taking in fishes of same species nd were looking for other species. The catch was far more than Jaguli. Also, capturing too many numbers isnt a good thing to do. :)

finally people are talking business and not about the luchi and boiled eggs.

I have understood your points both Tirtha da and Xargon. But implementing in reality is always bit difficult when you have got 7 super enthusiasts in the team. More trips would bring more experience and more tips and tricks. We would know who is good at what and what one can do or cannot. This is a team work and I am sure we will improve as a team.

Coming back to collections, Sanam is correct. We left many fishes in the water bodies only later in the day. We were satisfied with the collection, that was the main part :)

Talking of shrimps, we were surprised too :( it looked heaven for shrimps. probably there was something in the water shrimps didn't like. As we got baby snakeheads, chances of adult ones dining on shrimps is also there. But probability of that is low.

I guess every habitat that we feel would be a shrimp heaven , may not be. We need to study more specifically about shrimps and their requirements, so we will know where/what to look for during any such future collection trips. Also I believe pesticides played a major role for shrimp unavailability, though I would love to imagine shrimps were simply remained untouched because of their superior camouflage technics, which call for wait and watch during collection. I guess target fishing would be more appropriate for shrimping ;)
Thanks & Regards..

shrimps are more sensitive and absence of shrimps suggest that the water is not void of pesticides or similar stuffs and as it was mentioned/documented that the owner of one the wetland was spraying pesticide to reduce growth of plants, this practice might not be uncommon for the rest too.

So, this particular area is corrupted with human presence is all i could conclude.
Snakeheads wont just eat the shrimps..they are predatory and they could eat almost everything if we consider that way. The presence of smaller species like rice fish cancels that hypothesis i guess. I may be wrong too :P

just finding less shrimps does not mean that there are less shrimps.from what it looked the area could be paradise for shrimps.and all we did is to throw nets during the midday where they tend to hide in the deepest areas and the amount of vegetation suggests there are enough of hiding spots no matter how many and how nasty predators are around.They are always safe in numbers.And the ideal time for catching them is dawn or dusk where they tend to come more near the surface.
I am pretty sure that this habitat is a native shrimp heaven..........
But our timing was odd to get them.
