Study of seasonal fluctuation of water quality and fish pond conservation in Darbhanga, Bihar
Water is one of the most important and most precious natural resources. Water quality analysis is one of the most important aspects in water studies. Determination of physico-chemical characteristics of water is essential for assessing the suitability of water for various purposes like drinking, domestic, industrial, irrigation and pisciculture. Fish is an inexpensive source of protein and an important cash crop in many regions of world and water is the physical support in which they carry out their life functions such as feeding, swimming, breeding, digestion and excretion. Water quality is determined by various physico-chemical 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. A sharp drop or increases within these limits have adverse effects on their body functions. So, good water quality is essential for survival and growth of fish. Water quality is not constant; varies with the time of the day, season, weather conditions, water source, soil type, temperature, stocking density, and feeding rate and culture systems. For a successful aquaculture venture, the dynamics and management of water quality in culture media must be taken into consideration.
