Ornamental fishes are the most popular pet throughout the world and high demand for these fishes has made them an important component of the world fish trade. India contributes a very meager percentage to the world ornamental fish trade; but considering the high ichthyofaunal diversity it has the potential to compete with the world’s leading orname...

Question
Predatory journals —fake, scam, unscholarly and
deceptive journals—that compromise the peer review
procedure and require authors to ‘pay-to-publish’,
apparently the only criteria for publication, have largely
been discredited by the global scientific community
(Beall 2012; Butler 2013; Bohanon 2013; Bartholomew
2014; Raghavan et al. 2014; Clark 2015; Lakhotia
