The present work emphasize on the regular variations in Physico-chemical parameters of the Taj Baj Pond in Hajipur (Vaishali) district of Bihar during the 2020-2021. The water parameters are measured and analysis in this research showed both direct and indirect response upon biotic potential in all pond ecosystem. The inorganic toxic substances may be observed in the pond is especially low or trace quantity. The present investigation indicated that the mean values of temperature, pH and total alkalinity are peak in summer period and lowest in winter period and signify standards of dissolved oxygen was maximum in winter season and lowest in monsoon season. The poor water quality can produce in small earnings, low down product value and probable human health risks. The pond productivity is almost declined when the water has contaminants that can reduce growth, reproduction or still reason mortality to the cultured species. The water quality is significant for intake, farming, aquaculture and manufacturing use.
