Fisheries are a noteworthy wellspring of sustenance, recreation and salary for mankind and fishers’ network universally. The Ganga River, revered for its cultural significance and ecological diversity, plays a pivotal role in sustaining life and livelihoods. Amidst urbanization, industrialization, and environmental degradation, the fisheries in the Ganga water of Kanpur have come under duress. This research endeavor aims to delve into the multifaceted aspects of preserving fisheries, recognizing their ecological significance and socio-economic importance. A multidisciplinary approach will be employed, integrating scientific research, ecological surveys, socio-economic assessments, and policy analysis. Field studies, interviews with fisherfolk, water quality assessments, and ecological surveys will provide a comprehensive understanding of the status of fisheries and their underlying challenges. The research on the preservation of fisheries in the Ganga water of Kanpur seeks to illuminate the intricate relationship between ecological balance and human reliance. By delving into the challenges faced by fish populations and the communities dependent on them, this study underscores the urgent need for conservation efforts that harmonize environmental health and sustainable livelihoods. Through policy interventions, public awareness, and collaborative action, the preservation of fisheries can become a beacon of hope for the restoration of the Ganga's ecological integrity and the prosperity of the communities it sustains.
