Small indigenous fishes were very much important in socioeconomic, nutritional and biodiversity aspects. Bangladesh is reverine country which plays nursery ground of small indigenous fishes. But the open water system is reclaimed by anthropogenic interference of human. The river received large amount of discharge materials from industries, households and pesticides and fertilizer from agricultural practices by the riverside areas altered the physiochemical properties of water. Due to the contamination of water of the river, a number of fishes are declining affects the livelihood of the rural people. Thus it is prime importance to construct fish diversity structure of water bodies.
