  Seahorse populations are declining year by year not only in India but also throughout the world, because of over-fishing and increasing demand in Chinese market. The yellow seahorse, Hippocampus kuda is one of the dominant species and distributed all along the Indian coast. To increase its population in the wild, captive breeding and sea ranging is the alternative option. To breed this fish, it is very essential to know about its reproductive behavior. During this one year study, the clutch size of Hippocampus kuda varied from 61-325 depending on the maternal body mass. Size and weight of individual egg were also dependent on maternal body mass. However, there was no significant correlation noted between paternal body mass and brood size suggesting dominant role of females in determining brood size only. But the long and healthy babies were produced by larger males.

  The aim of the study was to find the RAPD finger printing of Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Bacillus circulans and Serratia marcescens, using ten random primers. The RAPD-PCR produced reproducible electrophoretic band patterns only in seven primers. There were 67 species specific bands observed, among these, 25 bands in P. aeruginosa, 19 in B. circulans and 23 in S. marcescens. This study suggests that RAPD typing could be an additional rapid typing method for studying the epidemiology of these pathogens. Based on the RAPD data the genetic identity between S. marcescens and B. circulans was more (0.3803) than the other.
