EFFECTS OF DIFFERENT HORMONES ON THE GROWTH PERFORMANCE OF Clarias gariepinus

ADESHINA, I., ADEWALE, Y. A. and DALHATU, B. J..

Abstract
The effects of different hormones on the growth performance of Clarias gariepinus were investigated. A total of eight broodstocks weighing between 500 and 900g (4 males and 4 females) were selected for artificial spawning using different treatments of hormonal dosage of Ovaprim, coconut water, mixture of coconut water and ovaprim and control (0.30ml/kg-0.26ml/kg and 0.00ml/kg) respectively in replicates. The result shows that the mean weight of egg stripped was higher in fish injected with coconut water + ovaprim with 80g. Mortality was highest in first seven days in fish treated with ovaprim (73), seven to fourteen days in fish treated with coconut water (60) and in twenty-first to thirtieth days in fish eggs stripped from fish treated with coconut water+ovaprim (5). Fry from the fish treated with coconut water+ovaprim had highest initial weight gain, final weight gain and weight gain of 1.44±0.91, 12.31±9.30, and 10.87±2.89 respectively. There is significant different in the initial weight, final weight and weight gain of the fry (P<0.05). Fry from the fish treated with coconut water +ovaprim had highest in ADG, SGR, FCR, and PER with 0.36g, 0.07g, 0.20g, and 0.21g. Dissolved oxygen was between 5.8 and 7.8mg/L, 22.5 and 27.80C, and 7.25 and 7.33. It can be concluded that uses of coconut water+ovarprim at 50% mixture is adequate to improve growth performance of the fry which will also minimize the cost of seed production.

Key words: Ovaprim, Coconut water, Clarias gariepinus, growth, performance.
