Main Article Content


Rampur  reservoir  is one of the  artificial water  bodies of  Guna  (M.P.).  The  villagers  use it mainly for irrigation as well  as for pisciculture.  Physico-chemical studies were  undertaken to enhance  the Limnological knowledge about the tank and  to explore possibilities for  better  management   of  pisciculture.  In  the  present  study  various  physico-chemical  factors  such  as  water  temperature,  transparency,  turbidity, conductivity, pH, alkalinity, dissolved oxygen and chloride were  investigated.  The recorded parameters showed  interrelationship and also indicated the suitability of reservoir for the purpose of drinking and pisciculture. Proper awareness of pisciculture to the villagers is required for the proper utilization and exploitation of Rampur reservoir.
