Abstract:

The present study is an attempt with an objective to achieve the survival of the male fish even after dissection and surgery is done corroborative to human surgery. Three experiments on males after dissection were stitched with absorbable surgical thread (T1); stitched with normal cotton thread (T2); and (T3) was the control was unstitched. Fishes were successfully operated for removal of testes. Swimming behaviour and feed intake were very normal in T1 and T2 while abnormal and reduced feed intake in T3. The wounds were completely healed on the tenth day and the stitched marks were very faint by the 20th day. Survival in T1 and T2 was 100 % while in T3 was 62.5%. In usual process of dissection, themale is killed. Sometimes testes are found not fully ripe and unable to fertilise the eggs resulting male fish is dead and unnecessarily killed. As this leads to a reduction in male population it indirectly creates a danger to the sustainability of its population. Present study highly contributes toconservation of this fish. Moreover, survived fishes can be reutilised for Clarias batrachus fattening and selling although it cannot be used for breeding.
