Abstract:
A study was carried out to determine variation in physico-chemical parameters of water and plankton diversity in Taro reservoir of Kawardha, Chhattisgarh. The study was conducted in the months of July 2021 to December 2021. Various Physico-chemical characteristics are analyzed such as Temperature, pH, Transparency, Total alkalinity, Total Hardness, Dissolved oxygen and Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) and results of the parameters were in acceptable range for fish culture. Plankton forms integral components of fresh water environment and contributes significantly to biological productivity of the ecosystem. Various zooplankton and phytoplankton were identified in Taro reservoir, among zooplankton Cladocerans and Copepod were found predominantly higher in number as compared to other zooplankton and Spirulina, Volvox and Chlorella were dominant phytoplankton. Present study indicates that Taro reservoir is having ideal physico-chemical parameters and plankton diversity which will support good fish production.
