Characterization of Perennial Pond Water Near Erode City, Tamilnadu, India for Aquaculture

A local perennial pond near Erode city was selected in the present study. The water sample collected from the pond was analysed and various parameters exhibited only little variations in quality. The pond water was used as a medium to rear the fingerlings of Oreochromis mossambicus to judge the quality of water for aquaculture. As the fingerlings died in the raw pond water, they were reared in various concentration of pond water to study the growth pattern through length weight relationship. As the pond water exerted very little deviations in growth. It is recommended to monitor the pond water properly to be utilized for future aquaculture practices
