The mosquito control potential of Gambusia affinis, a mosquito fish, was evaluated in rice fields in the Shahjahanpur district of Uttar Pradesh. This fish, at a stocking rate of 5 fishes/sq m, significantly reduced the larval and pupal densities in experimental fields as compared to control fields during the entire observation period of 42 days. Control of mosquito breeding in rice fields through this fish seems to be promising.
