Technology offer : Mass production of Chromobotia macracanthus

Technology's description

This invention relates a new reliable process providing a technical solution for the mass production of Chromobotia macracanthus (loach clown ) juveniles.

Due to new international environmental regulations and also to avoid  the extintion of this fish specie the control and management of C. macracanthus reproduction cycle of is a very important issue.

Working jointly, Indonesian partners and IRD research team have developed the first technical procedure for mass production of C.macracanthus juveniles in captivity.

The competitiveness was demonstrated during a production test leaded by our researcher and his team in Indonesia.
