Though called the salmon of India, the mahseer is really a species of barbel.
Just where it emerges from under the barrier it forms a pool which is crowded with mahseer of all sizes.
He dined with me at Rijaori, and highly approved the mahseer, which he pronounced equal to salmon, but far inferior in my opinion.

In India at least one member of the family, the mahseer, takes rank with the salmon as a "big game" fish.
I rather think the Taiping water is too discoloured and sandy for mahseer.
I never myself eat any mahseer, or other Indian river fish, anything like it.
