2. INTRODUCTION: Two Ponds (P3 & P4) lined with tarpaulin sheets were selected for the experimental culture having depth range of 1.30 & 1.25 m respectively. The pond measurements like Top & bottom width, surface area, pond name, and species stocked, stocking density and days of culture were prescribed on the display board at one corner of the pond. The pond was allowed to dry for 30 days. The pre-stocking management (Fig-01) practices were adopted as per the standard procedure follows as drying, desilting, bio-security measures
