Seasonal assessment of some water quality parameters in experimental fish ponds located at Tarai region of Uttarakhand
Author(s): Ningthoukhongjam Soranganba and IJ Singh
Abstract: The present study was undertaken to assess the seasonal changes in some water quality parameters in two experimental earthen ponds using two different batches of male and female amur carp, Cyprinus carpio haematopterus with body weight of 100-170gm and 330-450gm. The water parameters include water temperature, pH, dissolved oxygen (D.O), free carbon dioxide (free CO2) and total dissolved solids (TDS). Among the observed parameters, TDS and D.O shows significant variation with t (11) = -6.63 and -11.1 (p <0.05) respectively. Temperature, pH and CO2 shows non-significant difference between the two ponds. CO2 has the maximum CV of 31.1% followed by temperature, TDS, D.O, pH with 22.5%, 9.01%, 4.8% and 4.29% respectively. The Tarai belt was found suitable for culture of amur common carp species with very little to no change in water quality parameters when located in close proximity.
