Sinha M., Mahapatra B.K., Saha D. and Maitra N.JAbstract:
The Clarias batrachus (Linn.), an air-breathing indigenous catfish, popularly known as magur in India commands a good market value. In mass scale seed production under captive condition, occasionally huge mortality in larval rearing phase is observed that might be due to lack of brood care, appropriate feeds and feeding techniques, lack of standardized rearing environment, maintenance of optimum water quality parameters and disease management. The comprehensive study of breeding and larval rearing of C. batrachus has been done with some improvised modifications for production of magur seed in large scale at farm level in respect of brood fish management, larval feeding, water quality management and disease prevention. In the present communication, the successful findings have been highlighted which will pave the way of mass scale seed production of magur under captive condition.Pages: 210-214 | 745 Views 14 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
