Reservoir Fisheries and Limnology

V.B. Sakhare (Author)
Synopsis Reservoir management strategy takes into account the prevailing environmental varieties and it comprises both capture and culture fisheries norms. Indian reservoirs are Spread over various geoclimatic regions and their drainage represent different types of catchment areas. Besides, the varying design and purpose of dams make the reservoirs different in their hydrographic and morphoedaphic different in their hydrographic and morphoedaphic characteristics. All these diversity frustrate the efforts to evolve a common management strategy that can be universally applied to Indian reservoirs. Researches conducted in selected reservoirs, selected as types, help is in arriving at common strategies for a group of reservoirs. Yeldari reservoir is one such water body that could represent several of Indian reservoirs. Therefore, fisheries and several of Indian reservoirs. Therefore, fisheries and limnological investigations were carried out in this reservoir from October 1999 to September 2001 and the package was evolved to manage its fisheries with a scientific basis. The proposed book will cover the present status of fisheries and limnology of yeldari reservoir in Maharashtra as well as ir reviews the existing literature ion fisheries and limnology of reservoirs. The book will serve as a baseline for any future studies as it will allow fisheries specialists an administrators to evaluate the impacts of future culture enhancements on reservoir fisheries production and yields. The study may also serve as an example for similar studies in the region, either planned or already in preparation. The book will be useful particularly for the post graduate students of ecology, Limnology and zoology and fisheries for reference who are interested to work in the field of reservoir fisheries and limnology.
