Suckermouth armoured catfish (Pterygoplichthys spp.) which is popularly called "Devil fish" in Andhra Pradesh, was recorded in 93.33% of fish ponds out of 600 ha surveyed in Krishna and West Godavari districts including mesohaline ponds wherein salinity ranges from 2 to 20‰. Pterygoplichthys spp. have ranged from 150 to 600 kg/ha that accounts to 2...

Six purified diets were formulated to determine the optimum dietary lipid levels of pengba, Osteobrama belangeri juveniles. Experiment trials were conducted for 60 days to evaluate growth performance, total lipid, lipase activity and fatty acids by inclusion of fish and sunflower oil (ratio 1:1) in the diet. The dietary lipid level showed a signifi...

In spite of vast diverse fish genetic resource of India, several exotic species have been introduced into India. Chinese carps which were introduced in India with an objective of increasing the yields in aquaculture has paved way for composite fish culture in India. Introduction of exotic species for fisheries and aquaculture was successful in some...

Aquaculture has become the fastest growing sector of food production in the world. Despite the encouraging trends, several constraints have negative impact on the growth of aquaculture in India as in other parts of the world. In the present survey it was observed that except in some parts in Andhra Pradesh, the farmers involved in aquaculture are m...

We surveyed the fish farmers of five states, viz. Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Gujarat, Odisha and West Bengal of India for adaptation and mitigation strategies of climate change impact in freshwater aquaculture. In monsoon period especially when the cyclone occurred, overall 9% fish farmers responded regarding fish migration from one pond to another...

Pengba, Osteobrama belangeri (Valenciennes, 1844) is considered as one of the candidate species for diversification of aquaculture. However, only scanty information is available on its nutrient requirements. Hence, the present study was conducted on growth and digestive enzyme activities of pengba fry in response to different dietary protein levels...

Survey was performed to assess the availability and use of different commercial grade aqua-medicines, drugs and chemicals in aquaculture activities in the selected key districts of four aquaculture dominant states of India viz., Andhra Pradesh, Odisha, Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh. A total of 265 farms, 36 aqua shops, and 18 drug manufacturer units w...

Pengba is one of the most potential candidate fish species for aquaculture and an ideal fish species for diversification of carp culture due to its better taste and meat quality. In order to develop its culture technique, feeding of early stages has to be evaluated. The study was conducted to evaluate the effect of co-feeding of pengba larvae with...

In view of the increased importance of fish lipids owing to their human health beneficial effects, the total lipid content and fatty acid composition in the muscle of Bombayduck (Harpodon nehereus) of different sizes harvested in different seasons were studied. Among the three seasons studied, total muscle lipids were significantly (p<0.05) high du...

Project
1. To strengthen the infrastructure facilities for family production of genetically improved Macrobrachium rosenbergii (Scampi) at ICAR-CIFA to scale up the existing genetic improvement programme and to continue the genetic improvement programme to meet the breeder seed demand in the country. 2. To identify and partner with government and private scampi hatcheries (multiplier units) to spread the improved breed of scampi all across India. 3. To conduct grow out demonstration of new generations of CIFA GI scampi in different agro-climatic zones for creating the much needed awareness about the improved growth potential of CIFA GI scampi.
