Study of plankton population in relation of fisheries in Saikheda reservoir, Maharashtra state, India
Saikheda Reservoir has a diverse assemblage of plankton. Phytoplankton population varied from 1.6×108-9.8×108 cell 1-1. Chlorphyceae and Bacillriophyceae were co-dominant components of this reservoir. This reservoir supports a low standing crop of Zooplankton (6.7-9.8× 10.4). The fish production on the basis of commercial landing was recorded as 30 t during 2015-16. Major carps constitute the main fisheries of the lake whereas catfishes, minor carps and trash fishes were the smallest components of catch during the year 2015-16. In present study, attempt has been made to evaluate plankton and fish production of Saikheda reservoir, so as to get an understanding their utilization at different tropic level in different seasons.
