Physico-chemical seasonal analysis of Narsarha talab of Shahdol district Madhya Pradesh
Narsarha talab is very old and minor reservoir. It is used for irrigation as well as fish culture by fishermen society. Physico-chemical features of the water are extremely valuable in the assessment of quality of pollution status. The present piece of research work has been carried out to investigate the limnology of Narsarha Talab one of the greatest fresh water bodies and main source of water for various purposes specially fish culture of fishermen society. The monitoring of Narsarha Talab has been seasonally completed. Therefore the aim of the present study is to have knowledge of the water quality and productivity of reservoir of Shahdol town and to explore possibilities for better management of fish culture. In the present study various physico-chemical factors such as colour, water temperature, transparency, turbidity, conductivity, pH, Total alkalinity, Dissolved oxygen, free carbon dioxide, chloride, total hardness, nitrate, nitrite, phosphate, silicate, calcium, potassium, and magnesium were found to be interrelated. These factors also indicates that the reservoir is quite suitable for fish culture and proper awareness of its culture in scientific ways should be taught to the fisherman for its proper utilization and exploitation. The present study will be beneficial not only academically but also to improve the socioeconomic importance of the water body.
