The minor carp, Cirrhinus reba potential candidate as an aquaculture species: A mini review


Author(s): Nargis Sultana, Ibrahim Rashid and Md. Shakhawate Hossain

Abstract: Aquaculture entrepreneur are becoming increasingly interested in culturing new species that would complement the production of contemporary commercial aquaculture species available in Bangladesh and broadened species diversity to expand the market for aquaculture species. Scientific and technical interests have motivated on indigenous species whose biological cycle can be reproduced using currently available breeding techniques. In this regards, Cirrhinus reba appears as a credible candidate for commercial aquaculture. Over the decades, a considerable number of scientific reports have been published concerning species distribution, determining the timing of gonadal maturation under natural conditions or describing its morphology, fishing production, captive breeding and nursery technique. In this review we synthesize our current knowledge of C. reba biology and ecology, and focus on the culture potentiality in captivity as well as future research insights.
