The present study was carried out to investigate the physico-chemical and biological properties of water of a perennial pond (Dhudhaki Pond) with a view to assess its suitability for fish culture. The seasonal variations (from July, 2020 to June 2022) of depth, transparency, temperature, pH, dissolved oxygen, free carbon dioxide, alkalinity, hardness, BOD, COD, phosphates, chloride, nitrate and plankton abundance have been studied in this pond. The result of investigation revealed that pond has distinctive features and more or less optimum physico-chemical and biological condition for fish culture. It may be concluded that the production capacity of a water body depends upon the quality of available nutrients which form the basic materials for structure, growth and development of living organisms which in turn form the food of fishes.
