Artificial reproduction of African catfish (Clarias gariepinus) in Burundi

Credit: Alain Murekambanze (Burundi)

The photos show most of the artificial spawning of African catfish (Clarias gariepinus) as carried out in Kunagura Ubworozi (Burundi). The typical practices of artificial catfish –whether shown in the photos or not- include the selection of broodstock, administration of the pituitary gland extract, ovulation and egg fertilization, incubation and hatching. If you are interested in the subject matter, you may watch a 27-min movie on this site.
