Abstract

The study is aimed at the systematic representation of IUCN Red Listed marine finfish landings along three major fishing harbours; Neendakara (Kollam), Munambam (Kochi) and Beypore (Kozhikode). Collections were carried out seasonally and harbour visits were made on fortnightly basis during 2014 to 2015. Of the 206 species recorded from the landing centres, 73 were listed under IUCN Red List. A checklist of finfishes along with their scientific names and common names, an endemism was prepared. Those listed under IUCN Red List, different schedules of the Indian wild life (Protection) Act and the appendices of Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) of wild flora and fauna were also presented.
