A comprehensive publication dealing with methods of studying the different aspects of Fisheries Environment with special reference to Indian conditions has not yet been published. Keeping this in view, the book has been written with much emphasis on practical technology. A number of recent methods for studying the various physico-chemical and biological parameters of Freshwater systems have been dealt with in length. The author has prepared in an easy-to-read style with a number of illustrations and examples. The book certainly serves as a valuable manual-cum-ready reference to all who have further interests in Freshwater Ecology/Limnology of Fisheries Environment.
