Yoonpundh, R. and Little, D. (1997) Trends in the farming of the snakeskin gourami (Trichogaster pectoralis) in Thailand. Naga, the ICLARM Quarterly, 20(3-4), pp. 18-20.
The production of snakeskin gourami (Trichogaster pectoralis) from wild stocks and traditional culture systems has been declining in central Thailand, although they are on the increase in modern culture practices adopted in some provinces. Net yields of T. pectoralis in traditional systems are about a third of those in modern systems. The potential of T. pectoralis as a candidate for more intensive waste-fed polyculture appears promising if seed supply constraints can be removed.
