    Abstract

    In any aquaculture programme, the limnological studies are o£ great significance and in latter studies the practical value o£ preparing ponds for fish culture is of great importance. The importance lies in the capacity of pond to sustain high productivity which largely depends on the exchange of nutrients that takes place between the water and the soil. The soil plays several important roles such as in the storage and release of nutrients. In shallow water bodies such as culture ponds there is an intense interchange of organic and mineral compounds between the soil and the water. The soil profits more as it is constantly enriched by organic matter. The main processes taking place at the bottom of the pond are accumulation and decomposition of organic matter. As a result of this accumulation of organic matter, important macro elements are eliminated from the pond water and immobilised on the bottom, while the decomposition of organic matter not only release minerals but contribute also to the dissolution of available phosphate and carbonate.
