Locally available hill stream carps can be
cultured in small streams/streamlets with embankment of the streams/streams
on both sides by bamboo fra.
1. Preparation of bamboo fra
Split bamboo sticks or whole bamboos may be
tied one after another either with coconut-fibre thread or nylon thread. The
height of the fra may be 6-8 ft and the width of the fra would be as per the
width of the streams/streamlets.
2. Embankment of the stream/streamlets
The bamboo fra are fixed across the
streams/streamlets on both up and down sides.
3. Stocking of the
Fingerlings of locally available hill streams
carps such as Mahseers, Labeo pangusia Barilius sp. etc. with an average
weight of 25-30 gms are stocked at the rate of 25,000-30,000 numbers/ha.
Fish production of 8,000-10,000 kg/ha/year is expected in this system.
