Induced reproduction of African catfish (Clarias gariepinus) and sacrificing the male

Unlike many fish species, the sperm can only be obtained by sacrificing a male of African catfish (Clarias gariepinus). Testis is dissected and cut into small pieces whereas the milt used in egg fertilization will be obtained through pressing pieces of the testis out.

Note: We decided not to watermark the photos in order not to upset its clarity. However, we trust you will seek our permission if you wish to use a picture or more. This will be appreciated.
