Hi Akila, It defenitely a good site for reference. well I want to know the right term/word for the korra meenu (Telugu) fish in english. On your site it is given as Tongue sole and google do not give the right picture of it or the term used is incorrect. Anyways, if along with the name if you could post a image it would give a better undestanding

Akila

That's a good list and nice effort. But need to add a few more names. The many main fish names are missing in the list. A lot of my friends wanted to know the difference between Bocha and Ravva fish (Telugu Names for Catla and ). Great task.
