The present study was conducted to examine the physicochemical parameters of water and parameters of Sona river sites at siwan district of Bihar and their impact on fish survival and growth. The parameters of water and soil parameter include temperature, pH, conductivity, total dissolve solids, color, odor and elasticity. The results of the present study revealed that some selected parameter was found to be in permissible range for fish growth and survival except the conductivity values of soil and sediment found to be low, but proved to be not lethal for growth of fishes. Thus, our present work revealed that the environmental conditions in Sona river have been found to be more suitable for fish growth and survival with precautions and improvement in quality. Hence, our present study will provide useful assistance to the local fishermen and fisheries managers to improve more the conditions of such rivers for fish growth and survival. Furthermore, such information could also be valuable for determining the growth rate and productivity of fishes.
