Fish names from English to Bengali (বাংলা)




I don't speak Bengali well. Few of my Bengali friends are helping me putting this list together as we always will have trouble finding the Bengali name but would know the English name. This list is still in progress. If you know the name for any missing fish from the list, please leave it in the comment section. I want to create a resource that will help people to identify their favorite fish and enjoy the fish that get from various parts of this world.

I am compiling this list from various sources. Please feel free to let me know any changes/corrections needed. I am trying my best to source the names in native Bengali (Bangla) language. Please help me with the names in the comment section if possible.
