Effect of organic manures and supplementary diet on the reproductive biology of an Indian major carp

Journal of Research, Punjab Agricultural University 32(3): 285-290

Effect of organic manures and supplementary diet on the reproductive biology of an Indian major carp

Cow dung and poultry droppings were added, alone or in combination, to fish tanks at a rate of 20 tonnes per hectare per year. One tenth of the total amount was added initially, followed by twice weekly addition of equal amounts. Some fish were fed a supplementary diet of rice bran and groundnut cake, but no cow dung or poultry droppings. Control fish were not given any of the above treatments.
