Abstract: The management of water quality is the single most important factor in productive fish farming. Water quality management is an ongoing never-ending challenge, which requires certain diligence from fish farmers. The Physico-chemical parameters (Colour, pH, BOD, Water Temperature, Total Hardness, D.0, Turbidity, Alkalinity, Conductivity, Air Temperature, Depth) of Kitoro reservoir in National Institute for Freshwater Fisheries Research (NIFFR) estate, New–Bussa was studied from October-December 2020. Samples were collected monthly at two (2) different points (Monk and Inlet) on the reservoir and were analyzed using different analytical techniques. The results showed that most of the physicochemical parameters fall within the recommended range value except conductivity (71.08µs/cm) which was below the recommended range value (150-500µs/cm). The potential fish yield of the reservoir (68.7kg/ha) was found to be of high potentials when compared to other studied reservoirs like Dadin kowa (30.2kg/ha), Kiri (42.7kg/ha), Ojirami (49.6kg/ha). Finally, the reservoir was found to be of good quality and is suitable for fisheries and aquaculture.
