An attempt has been made in this paper to take stock of the existing knowledge on the spawning of the Indian major carps for a proper understanding of the most essential questions relating to their nature of spawning in inland waters, with a view to correlate the field observations made under natural conditions in the last few decades with the recently developed induced breeding technique with whole pituitary extract and isolated fish gonadotropin.
