The global climate change results from the rise in greenhouse emission within the atmosphere through anthropogenic activities. The dissolution of carbon dioxide is much more compared to the other gases within the river water change affects changes with warming. The climate change and temperature increase have shared to indicate negative impacts on all aquatic organisms. Thus, it is needful to manage greenhouse discharge in atmosphere for safe ecosystem with biodiversity.
