Yaakov, W.A.A.W. and Ali, A.B. (1992) Simple method for backyard production of snakehead (Channa striata Bloch) fry. Naga, the ICLARM Quarterly, 15(2), pp. 22-23.
The snakehead (Channa striata ) is a common freshwater fish species in Malaysia. Details are given of a simple technique for breeding this species, suitable for small-scale farmers practising backyard aquaculture. Two techniques were used to induce spawning - the first used water level manipulation to simulate rain and the second used injected with human chorionic gonadotropic hormone. The former, more natural, spawning technique was found to provide a viable alternative for the small-scale farmer, being much simpler than hormone injection.
