Heteroclarias hybrid juveniles are hybrid products of cross between male Heterobranchus longifilis and Female Clarias gariepinus. They are very rugged and disease resistant, and they consume less feed when compared to clarias species.
They attain bigger sizes than Clarias spp, and they weigh much higher at harvest.
Precautions when stocking ponds with juveniles
- Reduce stress from point of transportation to point of introduction into pond.
- Avoid exposure to heat by covering transport containers
- Avoid shaking containers unnecessarily while transporting.
They thrive well on a wide range of plant protein based fish feeds, and the survival is longer after harvest. This makes them preferable to buyers. It’s white flesh gives it a better taste than catfish species.
