Predatory efficiency of larvivorous fish, Gambusia affinis on the mosquito larvae of Aedes aegypti and Anopheles stephensi



Predatory efficiency of larvivorous fish, Gambusia affinis on the mosquito larvae of Aedes aegypti and Anopheles stephensi



Current Science 72(7): 512-514



The fish Gambusia affinis is the best predator on the larvae of Aedes aegypti and Anopheles stephensi. Predatory efficiency was found maximum on III instar larvae. 2-3cm group of the female fish performed the best predation. An increase in the larval density accelerated the predatory efficiency in all length groups of the fish. Deprivation of food had an initial stimulation on the predatory efficiency of 2-3 cm group fish.
