    • Abstract


      A detailed study of the embryonic and larval development of the major carp hybrid, rohu-mrigal, has been made and compared with the parents. The development of the hybrid was normal and more or less similar to that of the parental species, with only a few minor differences. The hybrid larvae exhibited intermediate range between the parental species in morphological features, such as nature of lips, presence of barbels and the shape of the caudal spot.
