How To Carry Out Artificial Insemination For Catfish by ayodejy05(m): 8:40pm On Jul 03, 2014
This is the artificial breeding of fish. The materials needed are Aerator, Injector, Razor Blade, Knife, Saline water, Hatching Bowl, Siphoning Tube, Artificial Hormone (Ovaprim), Floatation tank.
The procedures involved are as follows:
1 Washing, cleaning and disinfection of the hatchery and its environs
2 Arrangement of some of the equipment needed in the hatchery
3 Acquisition of brood stock (mature male and female fish of about a year or more than)
4 Injecting the female fish with about 0.5mil of artificial hormone (Ovaprim)
5 Killing of the male fish in other to obtain their milt (sperm), ensure that blood did not mix with the sperm
6 Striping (Forcing out of eggs from the abdomen) of the hormone stimulated female fish after about 9-10 hours of injection.
7 Pouring of the milt obtained over the stripped eggs in the hatching bowl. Addition of little quantity of saline water and careful mixing to ensure that the milt touches all the eggs for effective fertilization to take place.
8 Spreading of the mixed eggs on the kaskasban display on the floatation tank.
9 Lighting up of the bulbs and closing down of the doors and windows of the hatchery
10 After about 24-48 hours the eggs were hatched and feeding of the newly hatched fishes started from the third day after hatching.

The truth is, one cannot really learn such stuff by reading only. Even pictures can only go so far.
The best way is through a hands-on practical demonstration. the next best way is via video tutorial.

You would be surprised how much information can be passed on by detailed explanation and pictures.

Nice topic @ op but u know its nt as easy as u make it sound, plus picture would have been better.
Pls if u havent had experience before pls dnt waste ur broodstock thinking u can do it urself.
D process is nt difficult but vry technical like d injecting of d ovaprime, it is usually injected at d lateral line of d fish, d removal of d milt from d male.
Its vry advisable to get 1st hand experience b4 doin it urself

I dont doubt this.
However, it depends on how concise and detailed the information presented is.
The OP hadn't made any comment since he opened this thread, though.
Will be real helpful if he could post pics and/or video of the procedure, accompanied with a simple step by step narrative.

does this mean that a male must die to get the sperm.
I need to know so that I start keeping/ saving males now for my future business.

Yes, the male is usually sacrificed.
The female is used over and over.
Re: How To Carry Out Artificial Insemination For Catfish by pweetyface(f): 8:47am On Jul 14, 2014
Nt always, depends on d tearing when removing the milt, it can be sold later but not as a brood stock.

Sorry all. I wasn't online for a while. I will surely upload picture but I think a video will be great. Let me check my youtube video library. I will give the link soon. One again, I'm sorry for replying late.

Not always. You can either save the male to be sold as a table-size fish or you can still reuse it later for spawning; Yes it's possible!! A very technical procedure in which you leave a small part of the Milt in the male and surgically stitch the male up. The process is technical and only used by breeders with genetically enhanced males (You don't really expect us to lose such males, do you?). For someone with little knowledge about the procedure, it's extremely complicated to explain beyond this.

This is really helpful ayodejy05. I used to call an expert to help me do the job but he was so selfish with his knowledge.
Re: How To Carry Out Artificial Insemination For Catfish by Nobody: 2:50pm On Sep 25, 2014
Easier said than done, u can't just follow these processes without practice trust me. Sometimes Full participation and practicals won't even yield a good result.
Re: How To Carry Out Artificial Insemination For Catfish by showboy25(m): 3:34pm On Sep 27, 2014
