The present study attempted to investigate the changes in temperature conducive to fish habitability during the summer months in a hydrologically modified wetland following damming over a river. Satellite image-driven temperature and depth data calibrated with field data were used to analyse fish habitability and the presence of thermally optimum habitable zones in some fishes such as Labeo Rohita, Cirrhinus mrigala, Tilapia fish, Small shrimp, and Cat fishes. The study was conducted both at the water's surface and at the optimum depth of survival. It is very obvious from the analysis that a larger part of wetland has become an area that destroyed aquatic habitat during the post-dam period and existing wetlands have suffered significant shallowing of water depth. This has resulted in a shrinking of the thermally optimum area of fish survival in relation to surface water temperature (from 100.09 km2 to 74.24 km2 before the dam to 93.97 km2 to 0 km2 after the dam) and an improvement in the optimum habitable condition in the comfortable depth niche of survival. In the post-dam period, it increased from 75.49 % to 99.765%. Since the damming effect causes a 30.53 to 100% depletion of the optimum depth niche, improving the thermal environment has no effect on fish habitability. More water must be released from dams for restoration. Image-driven depth and temperature data calibrated with field information has been successfully applied in data sparse conditions, and it is further recommended in future work.
