    Fish sperm motility nowadays is considered as the best biomarker for the quality of fish spermatozoa, and sperm motion parameters from more than 300 fish species have been reported in more than 1500 scientific articles covering a wide range of topics, from molecular biology to ecology. The present study was conducted to evaluate two lab prepared activation media (A, B) and control (distilled water) on the milt quality in male and fertilization rate in female American channel catfish (Ictalurus punctatus). Brooders were developed from locally bred catfish seed and selected on the basis of maturity at Aquaculture and Fisheries Program, National Agriculture Research Center (NARC), Islamabad Pakistan. The experiment used a Complete Randomized Design (CRD) with three replicates for each of the three treatments: media A, B, and Control (distilled water). As mil.. View More»
