The present piece of research work carried out to explore the variations in reproductive physiology in an experimental teleost fish, Rasbora daniconius at the different ecological habitats. The experimental fish species was collected from the different selected experimental sites at regular intervals and the gonadosomatic index was observed. A great deal of variation in gonadosomatic index was observed in fishes collected from the different sites. At a particular site the gonadosomatic index value was very diminished in comparison to other sites. The diminished value of GSI at a particular site was due to heavily intoxicated water reservoir.
