Nalligudda Reservoir is one of the important lakes listed in Karnataka Fisheries Department records. It is situated in Bangalore District
, about 40 km away from the city. The reservoir has an area of over 1 sq km and is abundant in nitrate and phosphate. There is a rapid photosynthetic activity on the surface with high dissolved oxygen rate and a matching decomposition process at the bottom. All these natural features could be used beneficially for aquaculture.
