The Bhatsa River at Khadavli, Kalyan Taluka in Maharashtra State provide water supply to Mumbai metropolitan region and the spot is famous among picnickers. However, unchecked and unaccountable developments are affecting overall decline in biodiversity of Bhatsa River as a result of human activity. Due to lack of repository there is no record of extinct and new addition of species variety. Therefore to set up a baseline for monitoring of Bhatsa riverine ecosystem for conservation of bio-resources, the present study was undertaken. The main objective was to encourage ecosystem planning on a regional basis. The study was aimed to determine the abundance and distribution of planktons, fish and bivalve biota, access current damage and potential threat from various sources on habitat loss and create inventory. Physico-chemical assessment of water samples collected was done as per APHA and species collection was recorded by intercept method. The spatial and temporal studies revealed deteriorating health of Bhatsa riverine ecosystem. Lack of knowledge and awareness among local public about relevance of biodiversity was observed as major reason of misuse and exploitation. Hence public awareness activities were also organized parallel to sampling.
