Abstract: Xenentodon cancila is a freshwater fish species, commonly known as freshwater garfish. It is used as food fish and its acceptability and high demand as an ornamental species among the fish hobbyists have already been reported.

The present review aims to consolidate the earlier documented information on feeding habit and reproductive biology of Xenentodon cancila along with pointing out the information gap which to be filled up to sustain its trade as an ornamental fish and table fish as well.
