Shazia Husain | Ram Kumar [14]

Abstract: Water plays an important role in aquatic life as it has potential to alter the distributional pattern, reproductive cycle, and population survival. As a result, it become one of the most important elements of the lives of both terrestrial and aquatic species. The Ram Ganga River was visited extensively on regular basis to examine fish diversity and local fish market was also examined in depth for additional information. During the study period, a total of 27 fish species were recorded. The recorded species are belonging to 5 orders viz., Cypriniformes (n = 14), Siluriformes (n = 8), Perciformes (n = 3), Clupeiformes (n = 1) and Osteoglossiformes (n = 1) and in term of their species proportion, their percentage are as Cypriniformes (51.9%), Siluriformes (29.6%), Perciformes (11.1%), Clupeiformes (3.7%) and Osteoglossiformes (3.7%). A large number of observed fish species as listed as least concern (65.4%), data deficient (15.4%), and near threatened (7.7%) whereas vulnerable are noted as 11.5%. In conclusion, present faunas are observed with higher diversity in the river Ram Ganga. It also highlighted that a wide range of research possibilities are existed to explore more about the undiscovered faunas of Ram Ganga River in Moradabad, Uttar Pradesh.
