Weeds are plants, which grow where they are not wanted Sharma, R. This applies for agricultural, horticultural and pasture land where weeds grow together with cultivated plants. It applies as well to irrigation and drainage canals, water ways, ponds and lakes, where aquatic plants are growing in the water causing many negative effects. Aquatic weeds are those unwanted plants which grow and complete their life cycle in water and cause harm to aquatic environment directly and to related eco-environment relatively. Though they are not competing directly with crops, they can damage the irrigation system and reduce the water availability and thus contribute to a reduction of growth and yield of cultivated crops in irrigated areas. Aquatic weed management can result in time-consuming and costly control activities which reduce the economic benefit of the yield considerably ICID.

Many different aquatic plants can be found in, on, and around fish culture ponds. These plants range from microscopic organisms known as plankton algae which drift suspended in the water, to larger plants rooted in the pond bottom. Certain types of aquatic plants are essential for fish production. However, aquatic plants that interfere with commercial fish production are considered to be weeds. Intensive fish production often involves adding large amounts of commercial feeds and inorganic fertilizers to ponds.

In addition to providing oxygen to the water, aquatic plants provide other ecological services, such as stabilizing shorelines; absorbing nutrients; improving water quality; providing food and habitat to fish, wildlife, and other aquatic species; and enhancing the natural beauty of aquatic environments. However, excessive growth of plants as a result of high nutrient levels can lead to a number of problems and will have a detrimental effect on the body of water, its users, and its inhabitants.
Concept of Aquatic Weeds in Fish Culture: Weeds are unwanted plants that grow where they are not wanted. Aquatic weeds are plants that grow in the pond where they are not wanted. The habitat for aquatic weeds involve various proportions of water and soil, including intermittently wet ditches, ditches which always hold standing water, streams, stock ponds, farm ponds, lakes, ornamental ponds, and intermediate habitats.

Kevin D. Aquatic vegetation is managed throughout the southeastern United States with the guidance of state and federal aquatic plant management plans. These species are surveyed using multiple research techniques designed to identify and manage the resource based on the needs of the stakeholder. Management practices can be subdivided into physical, mechanical, biological, and chemical control to reduce or eliminate an undesirable weed species. This document reviews current literature related to management of aquatic plants and provides an overview of problematic aquatic weeds in the southeastern United States.
