Abstract:

ITC paper boards and speciality papers division located at Sarapaka, Bhadrachalam, Khammam, Telangana is among the leading names in the business worldwide and largest manufacturer of paper, paper boards and bleached pulp in south Asia. The waste water generated in the process is treated chemically and biologically before discharge for irrigation. The survivality, Growth and cannibalism, of the juvenile snakehead Channa striatus was evaluated in the waters of Godavari river and treated effluents, PSPD, Bhadrachalam. An enhancement in survivality, growth and reduction in cannibalism was noticed in treated effluent waters, exhibiting their nutritive nature. This investigation infers preliminary information on impact of effluents on aquatic life and also indicates that the juveniles feed mainly on plankton (zooplankton).
