Yadbhaviṣya (यद्भविष्य) is the name of a fish (matsya), according to the Kathāsaritsāgara, chapter 59. Accordingly, “... of old time there were three fish in a lake near a river, one was called Anāgatavidhātri, a second Pratyutpannamati, and the third Yadbhaviṣya, and they were companions..”.

The Kathāsaritsāgara (‘ocean of streams of story’), mentioning Yadbhaviṣya, is a famous Sanskrit epic story revolving around prince Naravāhanadatta and his quest to become the emperor of the vidyādharas (celestial beings). The work is said to have been an adaptation of Guṇāḍhya’s Bṛhatkathā consisting of 100,000 verses, which in turn is part of a larger work containing 700,000 verses.
