Abstract Share this page

Six culture trials were carried out in fertilized earthen ponds, using 5-day-old F1 hybrid catfish fries under two treatments (fenced and unfenced ponds). Stocking density was 70 Fry/m under semi intensive 2 culture and each culture trial lasted for a period of 21 days. The fenced ponds produced better fry survival results of 40.94% ±3.12 (SD) as against 18.78% ±3.12 (SD) in the unfenced ponds. Mean fingerling harvest was 28.66± 2.19 and 13.15± 2.20 in the fenced and unfenced ponds respectively. All the unfenced ponds produced bigger size fingerlings than those in the fenced ponds. Pond water parameters were found to be favourable for fish production in all the ponds. Mean pH was 7.88± 0.68 (SD) and 7.26±0.61 (SD) in fenced and unfenced ponds respectively while mean nitrate-nitrogen was 0.03±0.02 mg/L in both treatments
