Organism and the surroundings in which they live is an ecosystem, whereas the plants and animals living within  an  ecosystem are interdependent with each other. From the present study, it could be argued that the impact of the Azadirachta indica decreases total protein in muscle and liver of the fresh water ticto barb  Puntius ticto. Proteins are mainly involved in energy and metabolic process due to which it bears upon the physiological and metabolic status of the fish, which means Azadirachta indica shows the effect on the survival and growth of the fresh water Puntius ticto. The survey also indicates that the application of neem leaf extract can be used to control unwanted organisms in ponds as environment-friendly material instead of deleterious pesticides. Likewise, extensive investigations should be established to provide information for the suitable methods of application in aquatic animal production facilities to be fully explored in future for its safe use in aquaculture.
