Nitrogen in any form is in fact a depiction of the productive status of the natural ecological systems provided its concentration is within the prescribed limit. But unregulated anthropogenic intervention in the aquatic ecosystems enhances the nitrogen content and accelerates its senescence. Dal Lake in the present area of study is under incessant human interference which has in fact reduced it to a mere sink of the refuse generated by the stakeholders living around. As a consequence of the present investigation, nitrate, nitrite and ammonia values were found to record an increase. © 2012 The Academy of Environmental Biology, India.

Trace metal levels in the muscle tissues of Grass Carp (Ctenopharyngodon idella) and Snake Headed Fish (Ophiocephalus) commonly known as Saurya and Balaua inhabiting Antiya Tal of Jhansi was carried out during 2006-2007. Consequently higher concentration of various metals in water and fish muscles was observed which probably could be attributed to the addition of untreated sewage and other commercial run-off from the surrounding areas. As a matter of fact, present study stands witness to the fact that if the current unabated discharge of pollutants continues at the same rate, survival of fishes and other aquatic animals would be next to impossible. © Research India Publications.
