The present study to find out ichthyofaunal diversity of Rajewadi Lake was carried out between June 2013 to May 2014. The samples were collected at four stations with the help of local fishermen. The specimens were collected during the period June 2013 to May 2014, and studied the fish diversity of the tank water. Out of 25 fish specimens identified, 14 were from order Cypriniformes, 7 from order Siluriformes, 3 from Perciformes and 1 from order Synbranchiformes. By analyzing the data it is confirmed that the lake is rich in ichthyofauna and needs to be more exploited for commercial fishery and management for conservation of native ichthyofauna is must.
