Assessment of Physicochemical and Microbial Factors of Water in Lower Anaicut Basin, Tamil Nadu, India

The health, wealth, and prosperity of a place are all influenced by the quality and quantity of water. Water pollution is a condition in which the quality of water degrades as a result of a variety of human activities. This chapter introduces the basic concepts of physiochemical and microbiological elements that contribute to a healthy aquatic environment. The physico-chemical characteristics as well as the microbial community in soil sediment, water, and the gill area of Labeo rohita from the Lower Anaicut Basin were investigated in this chapter. Some human bacterial and fungal infections were identified based on their growth properties on specific culture conditions. The medium of the fishes, as well as the sediments in their environment, were collected and analysed for infections. However, five bacterium species and four fungus species were found in the gill region. The goal of this study is to improve consumer awareness about the quality of Labeo rohita in the Lower Anaicut basin.
