ARTIFICIAL REPRODUCTION AND POND REARING OF THE AFRICAN CATFISH IN SUB-SAHARAN AFRICA

A Handbook

by

Gertjan de Graaf and Johannes Janssen

The African catfish, Clarias gariepinus, has been reared for almost 20 years in Africa with mixed success. Since the early 80's both authors have been involved in the development of suitable husbandry techniques and the propagation of African catfish. This handbook is a compilation of several training manuals written by the authors for several projects in Congo-Brazzaville, Central African Republic, Nigeria and Kenya. This handbook deals with the artificial reproduction and pond rearing of the African catfish in Sub-Saharan Africa and aims to provide up-to-date information on production methods that have proved to be reliable in the field.

This manual has been prepared as an easy-to-read guide for the reproduction and grow out of the African catfish (Clarias gariepinus). It has a practical orientation and includes the latest developments. It was written for extension officers and university aquaculture students.

This is the original FAO Fisheries Technical Paper. No 362, Rome, FAO. 1996. 73 p. it is out of stock, therefore we provide the opportunity to download/read the original text.
