The Geographic Information System (GIS) is a rapidly growing technological field that incorporates graphical features with the tabular data in order to access real world problems. It has gained importance in the area of fisheries science and management. The foundation of GIS in mapping makes it as an initiative tool for fishermen. In the area of fisheries management, the GIS community has an opportunity to respond positively to immediate fisheries crisis around the world. For the creation of fish abundance in Aliyar reservoir, we have applied the GIS technique using ARCGIS 9.2. A GIS data case comprising of fish abundance related to temperature is created. The result of the study gives us an enormous knowledge to know about the abundance of fish in relation to temperature in Aliyar reservoir. Since India has a considerable livestock and poultry population, all efforts have to be mobilized to reclaim the resources and put them to use effectively.
