The present study evaluated salinity tolerance of nine commonly cultivated freshwater cyprinids (order: Cypriniformes) from coastal mainland of Sundarban, India, where salinity intrusion is a recurrent phenomenon. After 100% mortality of all the fishes had been obtained from 15 to 20 g l-1 salinity levels in the first phase of range-finding test, t...

Islands of Sundarban are vulnerable to climate change impacts like sea level rise, soil erosion, saline water inundation as well as extreme climatic events like cyclones, storm and tidal surges. These are bound to bring changes in aquaculture scenario of the region. In changing climatic scenario, fish will be subjected to hazard of temperature and...

Full-text available
Two independent experiments were performed to determine the effects of salinity on survival and growth of juvenile Macrobrachium rosenbergii, first one was to determine the median lethal salinity (MLS-5096 h) and second one was to assess the survival and growth at different sub-lethal salinities under field condition. In MLS-5096 h study 0, 5, 10,...

In this study, bacteriological quality of raw and processed Penaeus monodon produced for export trade from preprocessing, processing area and cross-contaminated sample was analysed in terms of total plate count (TPC), Vibrio cholerae, Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella spp and Listeria monocytogenes from a HACCP (Hazard Analysis Cr...

The efficacy of the synthetic reproductive hormone WOVA-FH was evaluated for the ovulatory performance and egg quality of Clarias batrachus at three different doses, viz. 0.5, 1.0 and 1.5 ml/kg of body weight of brooder fish. After a 16-h latency period, both males and females of Clarias batrachus were simultaneously taken in a ratio 1:1 for milt c...

Study of indigenous piscine resources is utmost important because these fish species in its natural setting serves as ecological indicators. This contribution focuses on diversity and conservation aspects of freshwater indigenous fish resources of Indian Sundarban Biosphere Reserve. The study revealed the occurrence of 62 ichthyofauna belonging to...
Conference Paper
Re-introduction of traditional salt tolerant paddy varieties and introduction of salt tolerant fish species reduce the sensitivity of community livelihoods to brackish water inundation in Mousuni Island of Indian Sundarbans. Improvement of community level disaster preparedness enables communities to adapt better to current and future climate variab...
Article
Full-text available
Amblypharyngodon mola and Pethia ticto are small indigenous fish species belonging to family cyprinidae and considered as primary freshwater fish widely distributed in Indian subcontinent including Sundarban region. The 96-h median lethal salinity (MLS96 h) level of these fish was found out by exposing to saline water (0-10 ppt) in direct transfer...
Article
Full-text available
The impact of saline water inundation on freshwater aquaculture was evaluated through risk assessment tools. Fishponds in low-lying areas of Sagar and Basanti block are prone to saline water flooding. Respondents of Sagar block considered events like cyclone and coastal flooding as extreme risk; erratic monsoon, storm surge and land erosion as high...

Populations of mud lobster Thalassina anomala were studied on tidal flats in the Sagar island of Indian Sundarbans. Ecologically they are recognized as the 'friends of mangrove' and a 'Biological Marvel' of the system. They turn up the deep soil to the surface by regular night shift burrowing exercise and help to import aerated tidal water in the b...
Article
A breeding experiment on Pangasius sutchi was conducted from July 2008 to September 2008 in a hatchery in West Bengal, India, using three different inducing agents, each injected at two different dosages: carp pituitary extract (CPE) and two synthetic hormones, Ovaprim and Ovatide. The fertilization rate was 82% to 91%. Hatching took place within 3...
