An Investigation conducted to assess the limnology in River Indus at Biliani Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan. Sampling were carried out on monthly bases.  In the current research various limnology parameters were analyzed from the selected sampling station in river Indus at Biliani. The water quality parameters such as Temp oC; pH; Dissolved Oxygen mg/l; Electrical Conductivity µs/cm; Total Alkalinity mg/l; Total Hardness mg/l; Chlorides mg/l and Total Dissolved Solids mg/l were recorded within the recommended levels. So the present study results reviled that Water quality of the current research was recommended feasible for aquatic biota and other purposes.
