Abstract
The present study deals with the Ichthyofaunal diversity of Godavari river at Dhangar Takli Tq. Purna Dist. Parbhani, Maharashtra. Ichthyofaunal studies were undertaken during January 2014 to January 2015. The results of present investigation reveal the occurrence of 18 fish species belonging to 5 orders, 8 families and 14 genera and one species of freshwater prawn belonging to decapoda order.
