Abstract

Fishes are the aquatic cold blooded animals, respire by gills, swimming by fins and body is covered by scales. The current study was to investigate the ichthyofaunal diversity of Catla catla, Sperata sarwari and Wallago attu in River Indus. In the present study, total of 8065 fish species such as Sperata sarwari, Catla catla and Wallago attu were recorded in 4 months (January 2018 to April 2018) of the year were collected from three sites of Jhoke Sohlan, Jhoke Rabnawaz and Jhoke Jandir respectively. The overall catchment of 3659 species of Sperata sarwari, 1305 species of Catla catla and 3101 species of Wallagoattu were recorded from three sites. The percentile values of three sites such as Jhoke Sohlan, Jhoke Rabnawaz and Jhoke Jandir were documented with range of 34.38%, 30.3% and 35.32%, respectively. It is concluded that the conservation of fish biodiversity and control of aquatic pollutions like (pesticides, industrial chemicals etc) and fisheries worker should be active. Fisheries department should protect it and to enhance the fish biodiversity because it is the evidence to provide proteins to the human population.
