River consist of a complex mixture of distinctive habitats, which make it among the most productive and valuable ecosystem on earth.

River with its tributaries is a unique type of ecosystem which generally covers different types of climatic zones, landscapes and biogeographically regions. River is the natural drainage system of the land mass of the earth which move continuously. The findings from the study will benefit the planning and management of fish community structure and conservation of natural resources at national level. During the present investigation, rich ichthyofaunal diversity was observed in the Sip and Jamner tributary of River Narmada represented by 52 fish species, 34 genera, 12 families and 6 orders.
