Conserving the Mahseer

Conserving the Mahseer

Conservation of biodiversity is not new to Tata Power. Indeed, the company's flagship biodiversity conservation program, the Mahseer Conservation Project was initiated more than five decades ago.

The Mahseer are a group of species of freshwater fish most of which face the threat of extinction in the wild. They are important cultural and biological icons of the rivers of India linking livelihoods and biodiversity conservation to each other. For over five decades Tata Power has strived to conserve these legendary fish. Our program operates on three thematic areas -

  • Captive breeding
  • Ecology
  • Awareness & sensitization
