Developing optimal strategies for restocking sandfish: a collaborative project in New Caledonia

ICLARM – The World Fish Center recently completed a three-year project in Solomon Islands, which found that H. scabra is the species most suited to restocking in the tropical Pacific and South Asia. The project established the methods for rearing juvenile ...

The effect of sex ratio at stocking on growth and recruitment in Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) ponds.

Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) juveniles were manually sexed and 50, 80, 95, 98 and 100% male populations (two replicates) were stocked at a density of 1 fish-m super(-2) earthen ponds. Growth of stocked fish andrecruitment were assessed from ...

Enzyme electrophoresis in Tilapia zillii: a pattern for determining biochemical genetic markers for use in tilapia stock identification.

A variety of tissues from T. zillii was examined by horizontal starch gel electrophoresis to identify isozymes of potential use as genetic markers for stock identification. Techniques were assessed for 30 enzymes coded for by a total of about 60 gene loci ...

Extending the limits of fish production in manured static-water ponds.

A working hypothesis was adopted that previously reported limits to fish productivity in manured static-watersystems (2.5-3.5 g fish/m super(2)/d) are derived from an imbalance between phytoplankton productivity and harvest by fish. The assumption that an ...

Factors affecting outbreaks of epizootic ulcerative syndome in farmed fish in Bangladesh

Among 257 Bangladesh fish ponds investigated, 46% were affected by epizootic ulcerative syndrome (EUS) either fully or partially. Thai silver barb, Puntius gonionotus (Bleeker), culture ponds were worst affected (64%) by EUS, while all Nile tilapia, ...

Growth of juvenile Actinopyga mauritiana (Holothuroidea) in captivity.

In this study, we examined the growth of juvenile Actinopyga mauritiana in captivity at three levels of stocking biomass, and under two feeding regimes, for 12 months. We chose this species because of its availability on intertidal reefs in the Solomon ...
