'The book covers detailed information about mass production of living capsules, freshwater rotifers, in both the ways, conventional and advanced systems. Further, the book covered detailed information about design, construction and operation of RAS based rotifer culture system with minimum water wastage for commercial operation of finfish and shellfish hatcheries. The detailed experiments on algal production focused on enhancement of pigment content and biomass production of most cultured algal species, Chlorella vulgaris. All cultured ornamental fish species groups from North East India are addressed. Species collection, acclimatization, brood stock development, design and construction of advanced hatcheries & larval rearing raceways have been explained in details. Essential new facts on induced breeding and larval rearing of North East Indian ornamental fishes namely Danio dangila Read more
