Induced breeding of climbing perch, Anabas testudineus was conducted by synthetic hormone Wova-FH in the intensity level of 0.1, 0.2 and 0.3 mL kg−1 of body weight respectively. The brooders were injected one time and left to spawn in the spawning hapa in the sex ratio between male and female as 2:1. It was found that at all the intensity level hormone Wova-FH could enhance the fishes to breed and lay eggs whereas no breeding was observed in control set. The spawning time, quantity of the brooder spawn, fertilization rate, hatching rate and survival rate were quantified in each set of experiment. The egg output/female was significantly higher in 0.3 mL in comparison with 0.1 and 0.2 mL kg−1 of body weight. The statistical analysis showed significant (P≤0.05) effect between hormone dose on fertilization rate, egg output and hatching rate. The present experiment suggests that Wova-FH at the dose of 0.3 mL kg−1 body weight of fish is more effective which might be considered for raising captive population
