Water Quality, Stocking Density and Parasites of Freshwater Fish in Four Selected Areas of Bangladesh

A.N.H. Banu and M.H. Khan

Abstract:
Stocking density, water quality (depth, temperature, dissolved oxygen, pH, total ammonia, hardness as CaCO3 and total alkalinity) and parasites of fishes were investigated in four selected areas (Bogra, Chandpur, Jessore and Mymensingh) for a period of three years. Stocking density varied from 15.74x103 to 34.38x103 ha-1. Water quality parameters (except ammonia) varied significantly from one area to another. Among the parasites, the prevalence of Trichodinids was dominant followed by Monogenians, Chilodonella spp. and Myxosporidian. Correlation on physico-chemical parameters and incidence of parasites were studied.
