Author(s): Selvaraj, S., Felix, S. and Samuel Moses, T. L. S.
Abstract: Pearl spot, an Asian cichlid fish, endemic to Srilanka and India, are widely preferred as food and ornamental fish. However, commercial aquaculture of this native species is hampered due to sustainable seed production. In light of the above, the present study made an attempt to evaluate the possibility of recording multiple spawning in small FRP tank. Surprisingly, the tanks maintained in group exhibited multiple spawning. However, paired fish maintained separately did not spawn after first spawning. The results recorded in the present study indicate use of FRP tanks for multiple spawning in pearl spot.
