Status of fishery versus exotic fauna in Gobind Sagar Dam Wetland (H.P. & Punjab), IndiaAuthor(s):
Gobind Sagar Dam, one of the large man made reservoir is constituted on the river Satluj. 46 species referable, 27 genera, 08 families and 05 orders have been recorded from reservoir and the tributaries, which are draining into the Dam. Three exotic fishes Cyprinus carpio, Ctenopharyngodon idella, Hypophthalmicthys molitrix
are found in the reservoir. During the present studies, it was observed that the population of the Mahseer
has declined. The exotic fish species as well as the lacustrine condition of the reservoir have influenced the habitat of indigenous fauna. It is pertinent to mention here that stocking/ culturing of the indigenous fauna can go a long way for the conservation of fish diversity.Pages: 396-398 | 841 Views 88 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
