SS Mishra, S Mohanty, MS Chari and HK VardiaAbstract:
In the context of massive loss of biodiversity, conservation of freshwater fauna has received increasing attention in recent times. Hence, assessment of the aquatic biodiversity and potential for the exploitation of natural resource of Chhattisgarh was attempted. Freshwater fish biodiversity in Kodar reservoir has been represented about 44 sps. Belonging to 14 families. Some of the important fish species found in the reservoir were viz Catla, Rohu, Mrigal, Grass carp, Silver carp, Common Carp, Olive barb, Pangasius and Mystus species etc. Along the stretch of the reservoir, 29 dominant phytoplankton species representing 9 families under 4 major divisions were enlisted along-with their distinct quantitative variations. Likewise, Zooplankton comprised of 11 species representing 8 families under three major phyla, along-with a great quantitative variation in different seasons at different study stations.Pages: 425-429 | 570 Views 17 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
