The present study deals with Ichthyofaunal diversity of Kadana reservoir, Gujarat. Sampling was done at every month during July 2018 to February 2019. Total 32 species from 6 orders, 13 families and 22 genera were recorded during the present study. Cypriniformes was the dominant order in term of species diversity (12 species) followed by Siluriformes (10 species), Perciformes (6 species) and Synbranchiformes (2 species) and Osteoglossiformes and Beloniformes were represented by 1 species each.
