Effect of Age of Spawned (Clarias Gariepinus) Female and male  Catfish Broodstock on Level of Eggs and Milt Produced and Growth Performance of Fry.

A study was conducted to ascertain the aftereffect of age catfish (Clarias gariepinus) broodstock on the number of eggs and milt produced and subsequent growth of fry. Six ponds were used to stock various ages of male and female broodstock which varied from 12 to 30 months. A randomized design (CRD) was used. A complete of thirty-six male and female broodstock were used. There have been four replicates per treatment. Spawning was induced by the usage of ovaprim® injection. The eggs were fertilized with milt collected from the male broodstock.

The quantities of eggs and milt produced, eggs hatched, and raised to fry stage were monitored. Proximate analysis of the feed indicated that Artemia contained 55.27% crude protein and 27. 12% Nitrogen Free Extract, while Dizengoff had 57.06 crude protein and 12.61% Nitrogen Free Extract. This content of crude fiber was 4.01 and 0.90% for Artemia and Dizengoff respectively. The result indicated that the age of female catfish broodstock positively affected the number of eggs produced with 24 and 30 months old broodstock producing 260 and 300g of eggs respectively, while 15 and 18 months old had 150 and 160g of eggs respectively. Hatchability also increased with the age of broodstock.

The older the feminine, the larger the egg’s hatchability. Fry obtained from 24 and 30 months old broodstock had a notably (p<0.05) higher weight (18g and 24g) at a month old in comparison to fry obtained from 15 and 18 months old female broodstock which weighed 8.33g and 10.00g respectively. To acquire good egg numbers, high hatchability, and optimum performance of the fry it is advised that broodstock must certainly be at the very least 24 months old before being useful for breeding.
