In India, 75% population are live in rural area and agriculture fish farming are major occupation of them who are live in village. The total fish production of 10.07 million metric tonnes in India presently has nearly 65% contribution from the inland sector and nearly the same from culture fisheries. Actually Fish constitutes a major source of protein in our diet. Fish apart from being important in human diet, its fatty acid are currently under intense scientific investigation because of numerous health benefits attributed by them. The amount of protein in fish muscle is usually somewhere between 15-20%, but values lower as 15% or as high as 28% are occasionally met with in some species. IMC are demandable and easily acceptable for consumers, it can fulfil population demand for their nutritional value in everyday life and air breathing fish are not easily available and acceptable by all classes of consumer. Among IMC Rohu (Labeo rohita) achieve the 1st position as it can fulfil population demand for their nutritional value at a lower cost for the above reasons. Even induced breeding become more popular in IMC where as the anthropogenic activity is tough for air breathing fishes. Their seeds collected from the natural environment, but due to exposure of chemicals in land and water the population become enough less day to day. So we have to save them from the list of endangered species for their nutritious value as compare to protein and lipid.
