Article
Full-text available
Microphis deocata (deocata pipefish), belonging to family Syngnathidae, is one of the important indigenous ornamental fish species listed as near threatened in the IUCN red list. Here, we first report the complete mitochondrial genome of deocata pipefish using Illumina next-generation sequencing platform. The total length of the mitogenome is 16,52...

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
Two grow-out studies one on the compatibility of Pengba, Osteobrama belangeri with catla and rohu; and the other on finding its ideal incorporation level in the three species major carp polyculture system (catla, rohu and mrigal) were conducted for 11 and six months, respectively. In Study-I, two treatments having pengba stocked either with catla o...

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...

Clarias batrachus (Linnaeus, 1758) larvae were subjected to different modes of probiotic (Bacillus subtilis) administration such as: T1: feeding Artemia nauplii enriched with B. subtilis; T2: feeding enriched Artemia nauplii + addition of B. subtilis in water and T3: addition of B. subtilis in water alone, for a period of 14 days. A control group (...

Catla catla is the second most important Indian major carp due to high growth rate and acceptance to consumers for food value. It is widely cultured in the Indian subcontinent as monoculture or polyculture. In the present study, genetic diversity among hatchery stocks (total 218 samples of catla) collected from different geographical regions of Ind...
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...

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
Full-text available
Here we report the reconstruction of the catla (Catla catla) complete mitochondrial genome sequence from low depth paired end Illumina sequencing. The genome is of 16,597 bp in size. Similar to other vertebrate mtgenomes, it consists of 13 protein-coding genes, 22 tRNAs, 2 rRNAs and a putative control region. The present mtgenome is 3 bp longer tha...
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
This article deals with the hatchery experiences of the improved rohu "Jayanti" selective breeding programme. A Specialized glass jar hatchery was designed for the maintenance of different families in glass jars. The most important parameter for hatchery operation is maintaining the water flow in the breeding pool and incubation tanks. This article...
Article
Dual-color fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) was performed to study the simultaneous localization of major (45S) and minor (5S) family ribosomal RNA genes on chromosomes of Neolissochilus hexagonolepis. The partial 45S (18S, ITS 1, 5.8S, ITS 2 and 28S) and complete 5S (coding and NTS) rDNA units were amplified, sequenced, analyzed, and mapp...
Article
Mahseer is a group of fish species that are well known as food and game fishes. The taxonomy of the mahseer species is confusing owing to the morphological variations and habitat adaptation. Detailed karyomorphological investigations have been carried out in seven species of mahseer, using karyotyping, Ag-NOR and fluorescent staining techniques. Th...

The single or combined effects of artificial feed and eyestalk ablation on gonadal maturation of spent Macrobrachium rosenbergii female brooders was studied in 48 females. Significant differences in percent weight gain, food conversion ratio, specific growth rate, gonado-somatic index, number of molts, molting interval, and ovarian development stag...

Project
The major objectives of this project are to develop and build up good aquaculture practices (use of quality brood stock and seeds, use of nutritionally balanced, cost-effective feed, health management etc.), to train the farmers, hatchery operators to improve a production line to meet the rising demand and to establish a value chain in aquaculture.
