    • Abstract


      A comparative study of the growth rates of three Indian major carp hybrids, namely, catla-rohu, mrigal-catla and mrigal-rohu, was made. The results showed that the growth of catla-rohu hybrid was the fastest followed by mrigal-catla while mrigal-rohu hybrid exhibited the poorest growth rate. Compared to the growth of mrigal-rohu hybrid, the increases in weight of catla-rohu and mrigal-catla hybrids were respectively 257·58% and 110·90% more. On statistical analysis of the growth data it was seen that the growth rates of the three hybrids studied differed significantly from one another.
