The effect of physico-chemical parameters on fish production was investigated in Mod sagar reservoir of Jhabua District (M.P.) India. The physico-chemical parameters investigated were temperature=17.1-32°C, transparency=19 cm-62 cm, pH=7.6–8.8, DO=3.0-10.9 mg/1, BOD=0.66-48.34, Total alkalinity=168-290 mg/l, TDS=180-330 mg/I. hardness=162 mg/l to 222 mg/l. Calcium=18.0-33.2 mg/l, chloride=22-36 mg/l, phosphate = 0.25-1.26 mg/l and nitrate = 0.23 - 0.98 mg/l. The main aim of this study was to establish relationship between Physico-chemical Characteristics and fish production of the reservoir.
