Food selection by young catla catla in a tropical fish pond



Food selection by young catla catla in a tropical fish pond



Journal of Fish Biology 10(5): 437-400



Food selection by young C. catla from a tropical fish pond was studied by computing the electivity indices for various types of planktonic food organisms. The fish was a selective feeder. A positive selection was observed for cladocerans, copepods and nauplii larvae. Among the rotifers Keratella and Brachionus were positively selected, while Rotaria was completely avoided. High electivity indices for some and low for the other genera were observed within each group of phytoplankton. Strict stenophagism seemed to occur for certain phytoplanktonic organisms. This is of importance to aquaculturists.
