Aquatic vegetation plays a critical role in maintaining the ecological balance of aquatic ecosystems. Maintaining water quality, biodiversity, and ecosystem stability necessitates the management of aquatic vegetation. It delves into the methods and strategies for effectively controlling and utilizing aquatic plants, highlighting the benefits they offer in terms of nutrient cycling, habitat provision, and shoreline stabilization. Aquatic vegetation holds significant ecological value, contributing to nutrient cycling, providing habitat, and enhancing water quality. Aquatic weeds include impediments to navigation, decreased water flow, and altered biodiversity. We evaluate various management approaches, including mechanical control, biological control, and chemical control, based on their effectiveness, environmental impact, and sustainability. This includes utilizing aquatic plants for wastewater treatment, carbon sequestration, biofuel production, and habitat restoration. By understanding and harnessing the potential of aquatic greenery, we can promote sustainable aquatic environments and improve our bodies' overall well-being.
