Proceedings of a workshop on Genetic Management and Improvement Strategies for Exotic Carps in Asia, 12-14 February 2002, Dhaka, Bangladesh, Mymensingh, Bangladesh: Bangladesh Fisheries Research Institute. A workshop on Genetic Management and Improvement Strategies for Exotic Carps in Asia, 12.2.2002 - 14.2.2002, Dhaka, Bangladesh, pp. 59-67.
New stocks of Chinese carps were introduced into Bangladesh from wild populations in China in 1994 and are being held at the DOF NFEP campus, Parbatipur. As part of the evaluation of the performance of these new stocks in comparison to the already existing stocks of these species in Bangladesh, trials are being conducted under the project which is the focus of this workshop. This paper describes the methodology being used for the first of these trials, which uses communal stocking of marked fingerlings from the different stocks, in a range of on-farm and on-station environments. Fin cauterization has been used for batch marking, based on research conducted elsewhere in common carp. The first of these trials has not yet been completed, but some preliminary data are presented.
