Puntius gonionotus Bleeker, or Thai silver carp, called locally "Pla ta pian khao", is one of the Thai local food fish. It is a fast-growing freshwater fish, easy to culture and highly productive. The species feeds mainly on aquatic plants, grasses, and algae. Recently, the natural occurrence of Thai silver carp fry has diminished. An adequate supply of stocking fry can be ensured by producing them under controlled conditions. The following mode of operation is recommended for induced spawning of Thai silver carp, as well as other freshwater species.
This manual is a translation of the Thai information pamphlet entitled "การผสมเทียม ปลาตะเพียนขาว" (Karn phasom thiam pla ta pian khao), 1981. The translation was prepared by Mr. Vijai Srisuwantach, Senior Fisheries Biologist, National Inland Fisheries Institute, Department of Fisheries, Thailand, and was edited by the Secretariat.
