Assessment of captive breeding of Anabas testudineus with the synthetic hormone, Ovaprim

Assessment of captive breeding of Anabas testudineus with the synthetic hormone, Ovaprim The perch, Anabas testudineus, has been designated as threatened species in Indian water by National Bureau of Fish Genetics Resources, Allahabad, India (Dehadrai et al., 1992) and also has been declared endangered by NBFGR, ICAR, India in 1998. To assess the applicability of Ovaprim, a synthetic hormone, on captive breeding of Anabas testudineus, we have used “Linpe method” for our investigation. Our results revealed that although Ovaprim was useful in breeding of Anabas testudineus with high percentage of fertilization, hatching, the mortality of the brooders was high. The possibility of toxicity caused due to high dose of Ovaprim in the controlled breeding was discussed. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Proceedings of the Zoological Society Springer Journals

Abstract

The perch, Anabas testudineus, has been designated as threatened species in Indian water by National Bureau of Fish Genetics Resources, Allahabad, India (Dehadrai et al., 1992) and also has been declared endangered by NBFGR, ICAR, India in 1998. To assess the applicability of Ovaprim, a synthetic hormone, on captive breeding of Anabas testudineus, we have used “Linpe method” for our investigation. Our results revealed that although Ovaprim was useful in breeding of Anabas testudineus with high percentage of fertilization, hatching, the mortality of the brooders was high. The possibility of toxicity caused due to high dose of Ovaprim in the controlled breeding was discussed.
