Fish production is one of the fastest developing agriculture sub-sectors in Nepal. Ethnic and indigenous communities were involved in the fisheries. Today it’s taken as a profitable enterprise. Secondary information sources about fish and fish products were gathered from online and print sources (articles, journals, official reports) and were reviewed. The trend of fish production in Nepal is increasing. Mrigal carp (Cirrhinus cirrhosus) with a production of 29.2 percent is the fish with the highest production in Nepal. Nepal imports fish and fish products mainly from the India, China and Bangladesh. But the export of fish and the fish productfrom Nepal is negligible. An increasing number of people are getting involved in fish farming in the ponds and lakes and that is resulting in the increase in the production of fish and fish products. Thus, the country is moving towards self-sustainability in fish production.
