Determination of Growth Performance of Intergeneric Hybridization of Heterobranchus Longifilis and Clarias Anguillaris

  title={Determination of Growth Performance of Intergeneric Hybridization of Heterobranchus Longifilis and Clarias Anguillaris},
  author={Hala A. Ibrahim},
Experiment on intergeneric hybridization of Heterobranchus longifilis (H. l) and Clarias anguillaris (C. a.) was carried out at the Toxicology unit, Fish Farm, Federal University of Technology (F.U.T.), Minna to determine growth performance and survival of the bred hatchlings. Pure crossing of H. l. (T1), C. a. (T2), intergeneric crosses of male H. l. with female C. a. (T3) and male C. a with female H. l (T4) serve as treatments. Each treatment was replicated three times.

Embryogenesis and Early Growth of Pure Strains and Hybrids of Sharptooth Catfish Clarias gariepinus and Sampa Heterobranchus longifilis
After 4 weeks of feeding ad libitum with shell-free Artemia, pure crosses of both species grew better than the hybrids, and C. gariepinus recor...


A comparative study on morphology, growth rate and reproduction of Clarias gariepinus (Burchell, 1822), Heterobranchus longifilis Valenciennes, 1840, and their reciprocal hybrids (Pisces, Clariidae)
A detailed study on reproduction indicated that female C. gariepinus mature earlier (5–7 months) than female H. longifilis (12–14 months). In the reciprocal hybrids, female first sexual maturity was
Growth response and survival of F1 hybrid fry of Heterobranchus longifilis and Clarias gariepinus reared in glass aquaria and plastic basins
There were depressed and irregular weight increases in both types of rearing troughs while significant weight increase was recorded at week 6 in the plastic basin, but the growth rate and survival in both containers were not significantly different.
Reproductive Performance of Pigmented and Albino Female Channel Catfish Induced to Spawn with HCG or Ovaprim
High temperatures encountered during the 1985 spawning season my have had a differential effect on albino and pigmented fish and may account for some differences in spawning success and other performance characteristics were similar whether injected with HCG or Ovaprim.
Pimozide-LHRHa-induced breeding of the African catfish, Clarias gariepinus (Burchell)
The combination of pimozide/LHRHa as ovulation-inducing substance has been evaluated and 100% ovulation was achieved in African catfish under hatchery conditions.
A comparative study
Cytogenetic, flow cytometric, cytophotometric and morphometric analyses were performed on 22 previously untreated, primary solid breast carcinomas. Although the cell nuclei as the primary object of
