Abstract:

The experiment was conducted from 28/09/16 to 20/06/17 in nine earthen ponds of 0.8 ha (3 no. ponds), 1.8 ha (3 no. ponds) & 0.4 ha (3 no. ponds) of three different villages of Angul district. The aim of this study is to assess the Growth & Economic parameters of stunted yearling (IMC) culture technique by multiple stocking and harvesting method. In the first phase farmers training was organized among a group of 25 farmers for proper dissemination of technology in different aspects of Pisciculture viz., Preparation of Pond, liming, stocking, manuring, feeding, health management and harvesting. Pre-stocking pond preparation methods are followed i.e. removal of predatory and weed fishes by bleaching powder (10 mg/l chlorine) and then basal fertilization (3 tonn cow dung and 30 kg single super phosphate / ha) were carried out before stocking of fingerlings (Jena et al., 2005). For better motivation of the farmers to adopt this new Technology, critical inputs were also provided i.e.  fish seed, feed, lime and fertilizers. Regular fertilization schedules were followed as recommended practices for increasing natural fish food organisms production. Three different farming trials were taken i.e.  Farmers practice (T1) (Catla : Rohu : Mrigal) fingerlings @ 15000 no./ ha and   culture for 09 months in an     Extensive manner. In Recommended practice (T2) (Catla: Rohu : Mrigal) fingerlings @ 5000 no. / ha and   culture for 06 months in a semi-intensive method & in another trial Recommended practice (T3) (Catla : Rohu :Mrigal) stunted yearlings @ 5000 no. / ha and   culture for 06 months in an Intensive method. Health management aspects were assessed by periodic sampling. Fish yield was recorded after harvesting. About 2.5-3 meter water depth was maintained throughout the study period. Water samples were collected from the ponds on quarterly basis preferably in the morning time and analyzed for important parameters were measured following standard methods (APHA, 2014). Then the data like fish weight (gm), fish yield (Quintal/hectar), average net return and B: C was recorded and analysed using statistical tools like Average mean value and percentage. From the results of the analysis it is found out that mean weight gain of stunted yearlings of IMC were higher in T3 compared to T1 and T2. Net fish yield and income in T2 and T3 were also higher than T1. In the present experiment stocking of  IMC stunted yearlings of appropriate size and density in selective culture practice leading to 60.90 % increase in fish yield in Recommended practice T3 (35.4 q/ha) against farmer’s practice (22 q/ha). Similarly Net profit of Rs. 3.78,580 was obtained from this technology with benefit: cost (B: C) ratio of 4.25 against Rs. 2,10,800 and 3.17  respectively from Farmers practice (T1) due to fast growth rate of fish in the second year of their culture.
