Abstract:

The present study is undertaken to observe different stages of  embryonic development of an Indian major carp, Labeo rohita of two different age groups (+2 and +3), kept under culture and hatchery conditions. The studies of embryonic and larval development provide the essential information regarding the early life history of the target species kept under experimentation. The main aim of this study is to provide information about the comparison of embryonic development of the same species with two different brooder age groups. Egg size, morula formation, organogenesis, yolk absorption rate, larval size at hatching, and onset of feeding were examined under this experiment. The results suggested that the embryos of the fishes of +3 age group showed better and faster growth as well as development than the embryos of fishes of +2 year age group.
