It also indicates that the fish species can be grown to commercial size within 26 weeks from fingerling stage under semi-intensive pond conditions. Water was changed regularly to prevent fry mortality caused by pollutants especially ammonia and inadequate dissolved oxygen.

After all measurements, the bidorsslis were revived in fresh water and then returned to the ponds.

The fertilization rate was then estimated by the equation below Adebayo, Head oval-shaped to rectangular dorsally; snout broadly rounded; eyes rather laterally placed; frontal fontanelle long and narrow; occipital fontanelle relatively long and oval shaped; ‘postorbital’ bones completely united; suprabranchial organ well developed; pectoral spine smooth; openings of secondary sensory canals with regular geometric pattern Ref.
