Authors(2) :-J. D. Mali, P. Chutia

Hydrobiology and fisheries of Gainadi Beel of Dhemaji District has been studied during January to December 2016. Gainadi Beel is a perennial one. 8 hydrological parameters were monitored during the present study. Some of the parameters showed slight monthly fluctuation. A total of 32 fish species belonging to 5 Orders, 13 families and 25 genera were recorded from the beel. Cyprinidae was found to be the most dominant family followed by Bagridae, Siluridae and Mastacembalidae in the beel. Conservation status (CAMP Report, 1998) of the recorded species was assessed.
