The study was conducted to identify the possibilities of natural spawning ground of carp fishes in Surma and Kushiara river in Sylhet for a period of four months during April to July 2015. Four locations were selected for this study to explore the existence of spawning ground and availability of carp spawn in the Sylhet haor basin. The sampling points were Hetimganj point (Surma river), Bhadeswar point (Kushiara river), Monumukh point (Kushiara river) and Atgram point (Surma river). The research was done by setting up two Savar nets at each sampling points of river site for the collection of fish seed sample. It was observed that 3105 g of carp seeds was collected from Hetimganj point and 50 g from Bhadeswar point. The carp spawn fishing intensity was 186.56 g day-1net-1 in new moon and 20 g day-1 net-1 in full moon at Hetimganj point. No carp fish seeds were found in Monumukh and Atgram point. The water quality parameters of the sampling sites were found within the suitable range and no significant differences of the parameters among the sampling sites. The availability of carp spawn in the study area indicated the possibilities of spawning ground of carp species in the Surma river.Pages: 31-36 | 290 Views 25 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
