Abstract

This paper concerned with 43 species of fishes belongs to 21 families, reported from the Budoholi wetland, which is formed by the old course of the Aduwa reiver. This time 28 more species of fishes belonging to 10 more families were reported which were not reported previously. This may be due to limitation of time period during earlier study or may be this time construction of dam has created favourable condition to thrive most of the pond and river dwelling fishes. Fishes of riverine habitat as well as pond and lake dwelling both found here. Moreover four species of fishes belonging to the family cyprinidae were found introduced in the Budoholi wetland for commercial purpose.
