Ireland, M. and Furuque, G. (1997) Stocking of eggs versus hatchlings in rice fields: a comparison of survival and growth of common carp (Cyprinus carpio) fingerlings. Naga, the ICLARM Quarterly, 20(3-4), pp. 20-24.
The study assesses the relative profitability of stocking eggs versus hatchlings of common carp (Cyprinus carpio) in the rice-fish systems in Bangladesh. Results showed that although stocking eggs-covered water hyacinths directly into rice fields is a simple low cost option, the yields and profits are much higher from incubating eggs in cloth hapas and nursing hatchlings before stocking them into rice fields.
