Addition of undesirable chemicals like pesticides, fertilizers, industrial waste and domestic wastes not only kill the organisms, they also cause diseases to the aquatic organisms. Besides, the requirement of oxygen by aquatic organisms is also increased. There is a reduction in the dissolved oxygen in water which adversely affects the aquatic organisms.
