Article
Full-text available
Passive Integrated Transponder (PIT) tags have been popularly used in identification of individual fish, stock, full-sib and half-sib families, year class and generations in aquaculture selective breeding programs. This study has been conducted on genetically improved Indian Major Carps (IMCs), improved rohu (Jayanti) and improved catla to compare...
Article
Full-text available
Although feed cost is the greatest concern in aquaculture, the inclusion of carbohydrates in the fish diet and their assimilation are still not well understood in aquaculture species. We identified molecular events that occur due to inclusion of high carbohydrates in the diets of genetically improved ‘Jayanti rohu’ Labeo rohita. To reveal transcrip...
Article
Full-text available
The recent climate change and anthropogenic activity affects the agricultural land/soil as well as aquaculture sector via salinization of the aquatic zone. The present study aimed to investigate the effect of salinity on genetically improved farmed rohu, Labeo rohita popularly known as Jayanti and evaluation of its physiological response towards co...
Article
Full-text available
The phenotypic and microsatellite marker information of nine strains of catla (Catla catla) for growth trait was used to infer relationship within and between strains. This information helped in optimizing the proportion of individuals to be used from each strain while creating a base population for selective breeding. For this purpose, nine strain...
Article
Full-text available
Antibiotics have acted as a boon for treatment of infectious diseases. Nowadays, antibiotic usage is restricted due to the development of antibiotic resistance and indiscriminate extermination of both beneficial and pathogenic bacteria. Antibiotics pose a threat to the digestive system leading to weakened immunity by eradication of beneficiary bact...
Article
Full-text available
Rohu was selected as the candidate species for selective breeding due to its high consumer preference, relatively good growth performance in multispecies carp culture system and low susceptibility to diseases. The salient features of Jayanti rohu are substantial additive genetic variance and negligible heterosis for growth. An average genetic gain...
Article
Selective breeding program was initiated at ICAR-Central Institute of Freshwater Aquaculture (ICAR-CIFA) in collaboration with Institute of Aquaculture Research (AKVAFORSK) in the year 1992 to improve growth of rohu through selective breeding following combined selection method. The base population was established from five riverine sources i.e. Ga...
Article
Several options have been proposed for eradication of germ cells (GCs) in mammals such as treatment with cytotoxic drugs, irradiation, cold ischemia and hyperthermic treatment. Some of these methods have been also tried in fish but conditions for complete sterilization of gonads have not been established. Here, we report the production of sterile a...
Article
Glutamate dehydrogenase (GDH) plays a key role in the metabolism of free amino acids (FAA) in crustaceans and other metazoans. GDH has been widely implicated a central role in response to hyperosmotic condition. However, the response of GDH gene expression to salinity alterations has not yet been determined in Macrobrachium rosenbergii, a euryhalin...
Article
The progress in the sequencing technology has significantly augmented single nucleotide polymorphism (SNPs) discovery and genotyping in fish genetic research. The affordable cost, development in Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technology and computational tool has rationalized SNPs discovery in various model and non-model aquaculture species. The...
Book
The book is all about the inception, planning, execution, product development, on-farm trials and dissemination of India's first genetically improved rohu "Jayanti" produced through selective breeding at ICAR-Central Institute of Freshwater Aquaculture (ICAR-CIFA). The experiences along with the lessons learnt all are compiled in this book so that...
Article
Full-text available
Fish cell line has emerged as an important tool in fishery biotechnology. In recent years, various fish cell lines have been developed by different researchers across the country. National Repository on Fish cell lines, established with the aim to preserve fish cell lines for training and education to stakeholders, has started functioning at Nation...
Article
Full-text available
The eastern Himalayan region, hot spot for fish biodiversity, is characterized by extreme climate and low water temperature. The poor somatic growth and delayed gonadal maturation in carp due to low temperature add considerably to the expense of producing fish from aquaculture. This study examines the response (somatic growth and gonadal maturatio...
Article
Full-text available
Assessment of DNA damage is of primary concern when determining the pollution-related stress in living organisms. Micronucleus assays with fish have been shown to be useful in vivo techniques for genotoxicity testing and show potential for in situ monitoring of water quality. We used Labeo rohita yearling to investigate the genotoxicity of potassiu...
Article

Indian turtle, along with tortoise and terrapin, belongs to the Testudines order of reptiles and the Chelonia crown group. The body of a turtle is covered with special bony or cartilaginous shell, which is developed from its ribs. One of the oldest reptile groups, the turtle of India was in existence even before lizards and snakes. Some of the spec...
