Fresh water is critical to human society and sustains all terrestrial ecosystems. Even though India has a large spread of fresh water resources, most systems are threatened due to anthropogenic activities leading to serious threats to fish diversity. Hence conservation and management are critical to the interests of all humans, nations and governments and hence the present study. Results show that the system recorded 33 species belonging to six orders, 14 families and 19 genera. In terms of percentage, Cypriniformes formed 36.36%, followed by Siluriformes recording 33.33% and Perciformes (21.21%); while Osteoglossiformes, Mugiliformes and Anguilliformes each formed3.03% of the total fish species.
