Present Communication deals with the study of four fish culture ponds (two wild and two managed ponds) of Dhar town, MP. In these ponds water quality and fish production are correlated. Studies have revealed that the ponds are in trophic status. Chlorides, total hardness, alkalinity, BOD, pH and plankton population were high level in wild ponds in comparison to managed ponds. Due to these conditions dissolved oxygen and fish growth/yield was low in wild pond in comparison to managed pond. The net primary productivity was also in wild pond in comparison to managed pond. Hence the fish growth is not directly related with net primary productivity. The deterioration of water quality indicated that higher BOD, pH, and High planktonic diversity decrease the fish growth. Management of water quality in ponds may help in enhancing the fish production though aquaculture.
