Abstract

The science of cryogenic preservation of fertile semen is not only meant for understanding the basic life secret, but also propagating living resources in long run. Efforts are being continuously made world over to evolve suitable methods of obtaining sperms through creation of gamete banks so that through artificial fertilization one will be able to produce the seeds at any time of the year. The central marine fisheries research institute engaged actively for the past 3 years in cryopreservation studies. Through the extensive Research efforts a breakthrough was made in evolving a viable technique for short term and long term preservation of sperm motility of fish liza parsia at —10°c and —196°c temperature respectively
