The Kasar Sai dam is situated near Hinjewadi, Pune. This medium sized dam is mainly constructed for irrigational purposes. It is about 20 km away from Pune city and is surrounded by hills, agricultural fields and village Kasar Sai. The present study deals with the changes in physico-chemical parameters, such as water temperature, pH, dissolved oxygen, alkalinity, chlorides and suspended solids. These parameters were observed and analyzed from December 2009 to October 2011 at every alternate month. Simultaneously the fish fauna along with plankton availability in the dam water was also studied. Based on the findings of the present study, the suggestions are given to increase the fish production by scientific approach.
