The present study is an attempt to understand the
“toxic effect” of ganga on fishes. Fishes are the first
vertebrate animals. Fish out of water, is an extremely
uncomfortable creature and in a few moments displays
miserable agonies of death. A vast number of people
are engaged in the business of fishes & fisheries. The
Government of India and the state Government should
co-ordinate and co-operate to ensure the life risk
coverage of the people. The important things we
noticed during our project work was water pollution,
Small fishes being killed illegally, Low literacy role
among children, Security of Dolphin & other foreign
birds are in danger in this zone. In aquatic ecosystem
small fishes from the secondary consumers. The killing
of these fishes will affect the aquatic ecosystem, which
in turn affect environment. Water is essential for all
living organism. Due to nitrogenous fertilizers, which
go to drinking water and become toxic when their
concentration exceeds 90 ppm causes diarrohoea.
There are some other metallic contaminates such as Cd,
Ni, Cr, Ar, Antimony, Hg, Cu & Zn whose
accumulations in body tissues could produces illness.
Many forms of aquatic life have been greatly affected
in this way.
