Fecundity and egg diameter of O. vittatus are part the reproductive aspects of fish and very important to know. This information can be used to predict recruitment and recovery of O. vittatus stocks in order to domestication and culture. The study was conducted from February to July 2014 in Singkarak Lake, Antokan River and Koto Panjang Reservoir. The number of observed samples are 50 individuals of female fish with the level of maturity of the gonad III and IV from each habitat. Total fecundity of O. vittatus from Singkarak Lake were 11,711±4,576 granules/individuals with egg diameter ranged from 0.80 to 0.99 mm, Antokan River were 6,378±3,344 granules/individuals with egg diameter ranged from 0.78 to 0.93 mm and Koto Panjang Reservoir were 14,824±2,397 granules/individuals with egg diameter ranged from 0.90 sampai 1.15 mm. Conclusion fecundity and eggs diameter was significantly (p<0.05) between habitats.Pages: 157-163 | 1028 Views 13 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
