Abstract

Artificial production of gynogenetic Cirrhinus mrigala (mrigal ) is reported for the first time. Ultraviolet irradiated Cyprinus carpio (common carp) milt was used for activating mrigal eggs. Cold shocking at 12°C and heat shocking at 39°C were used for restoring diploidy in activated eggs. Heat shock appeared more effective.
