In this paper we further investigate some applications of Nambu mechanics in hydrodynamical systems. Using the Euler equations for a rotating rigid body Névir and Blender [J. Phys. A 26 (1993), L1189-L1193] had demonstrated the connection between Nambu mechanics and noncanonical Hamiltonian mechanics. Nambu mechanics is extended to incompressible ideal hydrodynamical fields using energy and helicity in three dimensional (enstrophy in two dimensional). In this paper we discuss the Lax

We discuss their Lax representation. We also briefly discuss the Lax representation of ideal incompressible magnetohydrodynamics equations.
