The objectives of this study are to evaluate the effects of some basic factors, namely extender type, sperm volume, cryoprotectant concentration, cryopreservation and storage time, on the quality of Mekong giant catfish (MGC) sperm. The following results are obtained from conducted experiments. The sperm kept in Hanks balanced salt solution (HBSS) extender consistently produced good results in terms of motility. The highest motility grade (4.0) was observed after 12 hours of examination and…

Fertilizability of cryopreserved and cadaveric fish spermatozoa of freshwater catfish Pangasius sutchi (Fowler, 1937)

The results indicated that 15% of DMA with hanks balanced salt solution (HBSS) extender at a dilution ratio of 1:10 at −80°C proved to be suitable for cryopreservation of spermatozoa in P. sutchi, augments the feasibility of using cryop Reserved as well as cadaveric fish spermatozosa for the seedling production in the fresh water catfish Pangasius sutchi.

Genetics and Biotechnologies for Sustainable Aquaculture of the Black Tiger Shrimp Penaeus monodon

Basic research about identification and characterization of genes/proteins differentially expressed in different stages of ovarian development of P. monodon is illustrated and identification of molecular markers that allow selection of juveniles and broodstock with high growth rates are sought.

Effect of omega-9 rich fish oil on antioxidant enzymes and relative immune gene expressions in Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus)

FFO supplemented in fish feed can improve growth, but the related immune gene expressions remain unclear, indicating that the proinflammatory cytokine IL-1β might be enhanced by omega-6 fatty acid.

Fatty Acid Composition, Physical Properties, Acute Oral Toxicity and Antioxidant Activity of Crude Lipids from Adipose Tissue of Some Commercialized Freshwater Catfish

No sign of toxicity was observed for 14 days in female Wistar albino rats after receiving a dose of crude lipids at 5000 mg/kg, and their antioxidant activities by ABTS assay were 3.21, 4.53 and 6.00 mM Trolox per 1 g, respectively.

Cryopreservation of Mekong Giant Catfish Sperm

Best results were obtained when sperm were cryopreserved in 9% DMSO in either extender in 5 ml cryotubes and frozen at -12 "C•min-1" and fertilization was 65-66% (actual) and 73-74% (control).
