ABSTRACT

Water is basic precondition for life. Quality and quantity of water at a place plays a vital role in Health, Wealth and Prosperity of the region. The modern civilization, rapid industrialization and increased population have led to fast degradation of our environment. Water pollution is the phenomenon that is characterized by the deterioration of the quality of land water (rivers, lakes, marshes and ground water) or seawater as a result of various human activities. In this study, we examined the physico-chemical parameters and microbial population in soil sediment, water and gill region of Labeo rohita from Lower Annicut Reservoir were examined. Based on their growth characteristics on specific culture media, the following human bacterial pathogen such as Aerococcus Spp, Bacillus Spp, E. coli, Klebsiella Spp, Staphylococcus aureus, Proteus Spp,Pseudomonas Spp and fungal pathogens like Aspergillus flavus, Aspergillus tamari, Aspergillus nidulans, Aspergillus fumigatus, Mucor and Penicillium were isolated. The medium of the fishes and the sediments of their habitat were further more collected and examined for pathogens. However, the five species of bacteria and four species of fungus were found in gill region. This research highlights the quality of Labeo rohita in Lower Annicut Reservoir and to create awareness amid fish eating population.
