Water quality is determined by various physicochemical and biological factors, as they may directly or indirectly affect its quality and consequently its suitability for the distribution and production of fish and other aquatic animals. The role of various factors or parameters like temperature, carbon dioxide, pH, alkalinity, hardness, conductivity, biochemical oxygen demand (BOD), dissolved oxygen (DO), plankton population etc. cannot be overlooked for maintaining a healthy aquatic environment and therefore productivity depends on the physicochemical characteristics of the water body. The two selected study areas of Patherkandi block of Karimganj district have many ponds and fisheries. This survey work was properly supported by chemical analysis of the water samples and it was found that if physicochemical parameters of the water are maintained properly, we can get good productivity of fishes and it would surely help the local fishermen.
