The National Bureau of Fish Genetic Resources (NBFGR) in India, a unit of the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR), recently discovered two new eel species along the coasts of Tamil Nadu and Kerala. These species, named ‘Ariosoma kannani’ and ‘Ariosoma gracile’, contribute to the understanding of marine biodiversity and eel species in India. The discovery, made in January 2024, was a result of extensive research and analysis by NBFGR researchers. This discovery is significant as it enhances the knowledge of marine life and contributes to potential future studies and public benefits.
