Abstract

On 22-9-1952 an adult eel measuring 44' was found in a drag net in the Sulekere reservoir. Sulekere reservoir is on of the Northern districts of Mysore state, constructed across on of the streams of the Thungbhadra river. The reservoir is on an elevation of 2,000 ft. and over 600 mile from the mouth of Krishna River. After the construction of Thungbhadra dam, the migration of the eel from sea to the upper reaches of the Thungrabhadra is prevented. On 17-4-1955, an advanced eel fingerling was caught in the Markandeya stream which is in the eastern part of the Mysore State and in the Palar drainage system.
