Dr. Jayeeta BhattacharjeeAbstract:
The study reviews the aquaculture of Indian major carps, rohu (Labeo rohita), catla (Catla catla) and mrigal (Cirrhinus cirrhosus) with special reference to current feeding and feed management practices in Jatrapur (Nilam bazar), India. The study is based on a survey of three farmers from six fisheries in Nilambazar and also in its surrounding villages viz Jatrapur, Akbarpur, Kananpur etc. The study primarily focused on the rates of production of fingerlings of different categories, feed management practices associated with Indian major carp production, management practices that are used under poly culture conditions with other species-groups were also assessed. Artificial feeding is plasticized to increase the fish growth. Artificial foods commonly used are oil cakes, whole grain and rice bran etc. Azolla is preferred for fish food. Food supply was established on Phyto and Zooplanktons produced by frequent manuring and on artificial feeds in the demonstration ponds. Mixture of soaked rice bran and mustard oil cake was fed. Dough types feeds containing fresh (coagulated) blood or fish meal, mustard oil cake and wheat bran (Feed type II), and mixture of ground duckweed and the traditional feed ingredients, wheat bran and mustard oil cake (Feed type III) was used in other ponds.Pages: 35-46 | 590 Views 47 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
