Gonadal maturation and rematuration after hormone-induced spawning in cage-reared female bighead carp Aristichthys nobilis were observed. Percent maturation ranged from 54 to 100% for females and 0 to 40% for males. Maturation rates in either sex were high during March (1988) and low during December (1987). No significant differences were observed for monthly mean oocyte diameters ranging from 1.41 to 1.51 mm. Of the 34 females injected with LHRH-a, Domperidone or HCG, either singly or in combinations, 12 females spawned successfully. Three females were spawned twice consecutively at intervals between 71 and 107 days. Fish possessed oocytes of similar characteristics as those obtained from pre-spawning females when sampled after 27 days from spawning. Generally, oocyte diameters of individual fish measured before the first spawning (range: 1.41 to 1.53 mm) were not significantly different from those measured during the succeeding spawnings (range: 1.38 to 1.49 mm). Physico-chemical and biological parameters in the lake did not influence maturation except for zooplankton.

(Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center, 1978)This study was undertaken to determine structural characteristics within the gonads which might serve as an index to age and longevity and furnish information on the frequency of spawning of an individual.

Development of a brood stock of the jumbo tiger prawn, Penaeus monodon Fabricius Santiago Jr., Alfredo C.; Rodriguez, Luis; Mateo, Rodolfo; Obregon, Rene (Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center, 1976)The full-scale cultivation of sugpo, P. monodon Fabricius, could only be realized if there is an assurance of continuous supply of fry. Obviously, a steady supply will depend largely on the availability of spawners. In ...Series: Technical report / SEAFDEC Aquaculture Department; No. 1
