North-East India is a region with many native freshwater fishes and is one of the ichthyofaunal hotspots of the world. According to the current study, a total of 197 valid species of fish has been reported from Nagaland, India, which consists of 10 orders, 26 families and 87 genera, from various lotic and lentic habitats. Family Cyprinidae consists of the highest record of 75 fish species and Osphronemidae, Gobidae, Scianenidae and Chacidae families with the lowest record of one fish species in each.
