Why catfish culture/hatchery?
- Resistant to diseases
- Can be stocked at high densities
- Has low requirements for water quality
- Requires less area required for culture
|Catfish Seed Production
Breeders mature in 6-8 months, and can be obtained from lakes, rivers, tributaries and other freshwater bodies. Sexes can be distinguished externally by the presence of the urogenital papillae in males and a round opening in the females at the lower, ventral side of the body.
Stocking density ranges from 10-20 pcs/sq. m depending on water quality and supply. Staggered stocking of ponds is done every 15 – 30 days. Sample 30-50 pcs catfish monthly to monitor ABW and adjust daily feed ration.
