Priyanka Sharma
 
ABSTRACT
Present investigation was carried out during December 2012 to April 2013, to assess the comparative analysis of diversity and composition of freshwater fishes in Uttarakhand. Uttarakhand is a beautiful hilly part of India, enriched with various aquatic ecosystem like rivers, streams, lakes and reservoirs. They all contain a very rich and colourful fish fauna. In the present study, we analyze fish diversity of river Ganga at two different locations i.e. UG-1(Ganganani to Devprayag) and UG-2(Devprayag to Haridwar). The paper examines the effect of human interference and pollution over fish diversity. The study is focussed on a total of 21 fish species belonging to 12 families reported in both the region. The paper also deliberates over some endangered and rare fish fauna.
