Abstract:

The present study primarily focused on systematic representation of IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) Red Listed marine finfish landings of Chellanam harbour of Ernakulam district, Kerala. The study was conducted for a period of 6 months from November 2018 to April 2019. Sample collections were conducted twice in a month. A checklist of finfishes along with their scientific name, common name, family and present conservation status were prepared. A total of 41 species of fishes belonging to 24 families were identified during the entire study. As per IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) Red List (2017-3), out of 41 fish species identified, 1 species comes under Near Threatened (NT), 1 species comes under Vulnerable (VU), 2 species comes under Data Deficient (DD), 31 species comes under Least Concern (LC) and 6 species comes under Not Evaluated (NE). Information on conservation status of fishes plays a significant role in fisheries science since it forms basis for management of marine fishery resources.
