ABSTRACT
The fish assemblage structure was analyzed in the streams of the river Ganga of Uttarakhand state, India. Four different sites (Kosi, Suyal, Gagas & Gomti) were sampled before (February 2013) and after flood (September 2013). In this study, we focused on fishes of order Cypriniformes, Mastacembelis and Ophiocephaliformes.We have examined how regular floods of river Ganga affect the structure of fish assemblage of abovementioned order of fishes.
