Fish Names in Tamil & English/Types of Fish/Fish Varieties in Tamil & English

Hello Friends,

Today I am going to share the fish names both in Tamil and English. I visit fish market one or two times every week. Though I know the names of fish in Tamil each time I used to google to find out the English names. I have googled most of the fish names and made a glossary, so that it would be useful for everybody. Next time, I am planning to click photos of each fish and update this post whenever possible. Ok  friends, if you find anything wrong or if you would like to add more fish names please keep me posted.

Here’s the list of fish names in both English and Tamil.


The above is Kola Meen after it is cut, which I made this week end. Will share recipes of the same soon.
