The soil conditions of the State vary from fertile soil to total desert saline soil. The temperature ranges from 2 Degree Centigrade to 48 Degree Centigrade, the rain fall varies from 50 mm to 1500 mm. Since old time irregular and uncertain monsoon conditions and frequent occurrence of droughts forced the inhabitant to construct the large number of rain water harvesting structures in the form of ponds, tanks and reservoirs.
The state is endowed with four major river basins viz. Chambal river basins, Mahi river basin, Luni river basin and Ghaghghar river basin. About seventy rivers connect these major river system with large number of tanks, ponds and reservoirs during monsoon season regulating in natural recruitment of fish and other aquatic fauna throughout the State.

For realizing potential use of the water resources for fisheries development and livelihood generation, a separate department of fisheries was established in 1982 by the state government, before that it was a part of Animal Husbandry Department.
After its separate existence, fish production has increased up to 28200 mt. Fish seed production & stocking has reached to 482.41 million fry. Revenue from fish auction has increased from Rs. 97.5 lakhs to 2540.55 lakhs.
