In an era marked by growing environmental challenges, the introduction of mosquito fish (Gambusia affinis) into aquatic ecosystems has emerged as a potent solution for the control of disease-spreading mosquitoes. This research journal article presents a comprehensive study conducted in Tekrial Lake, located in the Kamareddy district, to unravel the electrifying potential and multifaceted impact of Gambusia fish. The investigation delves into the diverse facets of Gambusia fish, including its ecological characteristics and adaptation to Tekrial Lake's unique environment. We explore the intricate process of transporting Gambusia fish to ponds and lakes, highlighting essential precautions to ensure their well-being during transit. Central to this research is the role of Gambusia fish in mosquito control, elucidating their impact on mosquito populations within lakes and ponds. We delve into the intricate interplay between Gambusia fish and environmental factors, shedding light on their influence on the aquatic ecosystem's equilibrium. Our research demonstrates how Gambusia fish can serve as a potent tool in controlling this menace, thus ensuring the ecological sustainability of aquatic environments. This research article stands as a testament to the electrifying potential of Gambusia fish in shaping and revitalizing aquatic ecosystems. The findings herein provide valuable insights for policymakers, environmentalists, and researchers alike, offering a path towards harnessing nature's solution to combat mosquito-borne diseases while maintaining ecological balance.
