Growth response and survival of F1 hybrid fry of Heterobranchus longifilis and Clarias gariepinus reared in glass aquaria and plastic basins.
In: 19th Annual Conference of the Fisheries Society of Nigeria (FISON)
, 29 Nov - 03 Dec 2004
, Ilorin, Nigeria.
The growth response of F1 hybrid fry of female Heterobranchus longifilis and male Clarias gariepinus were investigated under laboratory conditions in glass aquaria glass tanks and plastic basins. The larvae were produced artificially after inducement with Ovarptim. The hatching percentage was very high. Weekly mean length and weight were monitored for 6 weeks. The average length increase was higher in aquaria glass tanks than in plastic basins. However, there were depressed and irregular weight increases in both types of rearing troughs while significant weight increase (P<0.05) was recorded at week 6 in the plastic basin. Generally, the growth rate and survival in both containers were not significantly different
