Orji, R.C.A. and Nnadi, C.N. and Onyike, G. and Ogbona, J. (1997) Effect of different salinity levels on the fertilization and hatching of Heterobranchus bidorsalis. Naga, the ICLARM Quarterly, 20(2), pp. 21-22.
The success of induced spawning for the production of fish seed depends on many factors which affect hatchery conditions. This paper discusses the results of an investigation on the effects of six different levels of salinity on the fertilization and hatching of Heterobranchus bidorsalis eggs. The results indicate that spermatozoa of H. bidorsalis can survive under a wide range of saline concentrations, with survival increasing with an increase in salinity from 0 to 0.4% and then decreasing as the level of salinity increases. Survival was optimum of 0.4% saline concentration.
