Cage culture of Hilsa (Tenualosa ilisha) in Ukai Reservoir, Gujarat, India - A Novel Initiative

By Biswajit Dash, Ritesh Ranjan, Shubhadeep Ghosh, V R Suresh and A Gopalakrishnan


Hilsa is a fast swimmer and 31% a highly migratory and anandromous fish that prefers to inhabit a part of its life in the sea, not far from the shallow coastal belt due to the presence of subsurface oxygen, relatively low salinity, strong tidal action, high turbidity, heavy siltation and rich growth of plankton (Pillay and Rosa, 1963; Sahu et al., 220l6). Hilsa has a wide salinity tolerance and inhabits freshwater, estuarine and the coastal waters
