BROODSTOCK
MANAGEMENT
• Crucial conditioning process by manipulating
environmental factors surrounding the broodstock
to ensure maximum survival, enhance gonadal
development and increase fecundity of broodstock
in captivity.
• Tagging were done with RFID chip for broodstock
identification purposes
• Ultrasonography is a non-invasive diagnostic tool
used to determine egg maturity in the broodstock.

BREEDING
Hormonal manipulation was used in synchronizing and advancing maturation of
the eggs. Ovaplant (contained sGnRHa) were implant a month before scheduled
breeding program while Ovaprim (contained ova-RH) were injected 17 hours
prior to stripping.

Seven days after hatched, the larvae can be fed with livefeed such as Artemia sp. and Moina sp.
After two months, the fry were given micropellet and by reaching fingerling stage (3 months old)
they were transferred to bigger tank and fed with mixture of micropellet and 1mm pellet.
