MICROBIOLOGICAL STUDIES ON FINFISHES COLLECTED FROM LOWER ANAICUT, TAMIL NADU, INDIA |  UTTAR PRADESH JOURNAL OF ZOOLOGY

Microbial infections can be lethal if not treated promptly, as well as creating significant economic losses for the aquaculture business; thus, aquaculture biosecurity issues addressing pathogens and illnesses should be prioritised. As a result, the current study was carried out to investigate the prevalence of bacterial and fungal pathogens in the water as well as in the intestinal tracts of the usually occurring fishes in this system. The samples for this study were taken from the River Cauvery at Lower Anicut, Thanjavur District, Tamil Nadu. This river features a diverse fish population that includes murrels, catfish, carps, and eels. The size and weight of the numerous fishes studied in this study, as well as the bacterial load in the water and the fishes studied. Water had the highest bacterial count burden. Channa punctatus had the highest bacterial load (38 x 103cfu/ml), followed by Puntius conchonius (36 x 103Cfu/ml) and Mystus vittatus (34 X 103Cfu/ml). Catla catla had the least level of bacterial burden (1.2 x 103Cfu/ml). A total of 13 fungus species were discovered in the system’s water samples. C. catla was found to have 8 fungus species in its intestinal system among the fishes. C. punctatus, on the other hand, reported the presence of 9 fungal species, C. batrachus, the presence of 10 fungal species, and M. vittatus and P. conchonius, the presence of 11 fungal species apiece. Overall, water has the highest number of fungal species, followed by M. vittatus and P. conchonius. Rhizopus nigricans and Achlya hypogyna were not found in M. vittatus, while Alternaria alternata and Achlya prolifera were not found in P. conchonius. C. catla and L. rohita found the fewest fungus (8 each). C. catla, A. fumigatus, Penicillium citrinum, R. nigricans, A. prolifera, and A. hypogyna were not reported, however L. rohita, A. fumigatus, A. alternata, Curvularia lunata, A. prolifera, and Mycelia sterilia were. As a result, it appears that each fish had a unique fungus. This is most likely due to the bodily composition of each fish, as well as its resilience to certain fungus. A closer examination indicates, however, that four fungi (Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus flavus, Fusarium oxysporium, and Cladosporium herbarum) were found in all fish species. The degree of infection, on the other hand, varied from species to species and appeared to be a reflection of the species makeup of the water.

ASSESSMENT OF SOIL AND WATER QUALITY AND ITS POSSIBLE IMPACT ON THE FLORA AND FAUNA IN JAYARAMPETTAI VILLAGE OF RANIPET DISTRICT, TAMIL NADU, INDIA | UTTAR PRADESH JOURNAL OF ZOOLOGY




From January to December 2019, the quality of soil and water in Jayarampettai village, Ranipet district, Tamil Nadu, India, was tested for its impact on flora and wildlife. Higher concentrations of iron and manganese were found in the physicochemical, macronutrient, and metal parameters for soil tested in the study region, which serve as crucial markers for environmental risk assessment and raising awareness about the protection of flora and fauna biodiversity. Metal characteristics, on the other hand, were undetectable during water analysis. The growth and quality of plant and animal life will undoubtedly be harmed if soil quality is damaged as a result of industrialization. The quality of soil and water for biotic communities will be determined in future studies on soil and water analyses in additional villages in Ranipet district.

DIVERSITY OF CHLOROPHYCEAE IN THE MIRIK LAKE OF THE DARJEELING HIMALAYAN REGION | UTTAR PRADESH JOURNAL OF ZOOLOGY


“Mirik Lake” is an artificial reservoir of Mirik town of the Darjeeling Himalayan region of West Bengal, India at an altitude of 1767 meters above mean sea level. This Lake was constructed in 1979 primarily for the facilitation of commercial tourism in Darjeeling and is fed by both perennial streams and rain water. The Lake is not only used for different recreational activities but also supplies drinking water to the local people of the Mirik Town. The Chlorophyceae constitute a large and diverse group of fresh water algae including members that are important ecologically and scientifically. Chlorophyceae are the photosynthetic organisms and one of the pioneer species in aquatic food web.
