The present investigation was carried out to observe the biodiversity of fish fauna and to analyze the physiochemical parameters of water and soil in Zameer Gul dam of Kohat District, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan. The collection was done from April 2019 to September 2019. A total of nine species were identified, which were belonging to one orders, one family and nine genera. The physiochemical properties like color, taste, odor, electrical conductivity, pH, temperature, elasticity and, TDS of water and soil samples collected from three different sites (start, mid, and end) of the dams were analyzed. Therefore, from the results of our present study, it was concluded that the Zameer Gul dam of Kohat district has favorable condition to support more diversity of fish fauna. In conclusion present study provide useful information about the diversity of fish fauna and physiochemical parameter of Zameer Gul dam that can of interest in the fields of systematics, fisheries management and conservation.
