Abstract: Biodiversity is a broad term that refers to the morphological, physiological and genetic variation found among organisms. In this context, species diversity is also found in the individuals of fishes. Many of whose species live in fresh water, but at present time due to illegal hunting, water pollution, and use of huge amount of pesticide in crop production, global warming and urbanization. There has been a decrease in these fish species from previous years, which has resulted in a clean aquatic ecosystem. The sources are becoming unhealthy as a result of which the entire food chain will be affected. Study of fresh water fish diversity is important because species of fishes play crucial role in the economy of a country as well as health of aquatic ecosystem. Present study deals to fresh water fish species from Chandrakeshar dam in which my findings only 35 fish species were encountered which belongs to 20 genera, 05 Orders, and 13 families. The Cyprinidae family was dominant group by 17 fish species.
