Brief profile:

After taking masters in Freshwater Aquaculture (Fish Pathology and Microbiology) in [2000] and PhD in Inland Aquaculture in [2004] I am working in CIBA. Since 1.7 [year] on 15.05.2014, I currently work in division of Fish Culture Division in CIBA. I have worked on Breeding and Seed Production of Brackishwater Commercial Fishes and also Ornamental Fishes, I have contributed to induced breeding and seed production of Crescent Perch, Terapon jarbua and Orange Chromide, Etroplus maculatus with hormonal induction under captivity. I have interests in Breeding of other Brackishwater Ornamental Fishes.

Research areas:

  • Breeding and Seed Production of Brackishwater Commercial Fishes.
  • Breeding and Seed Production of Brackishwater Ornamental Fishes.
  • Induced Breeding and Seed Production of endemic /endangered brackishwater fishes.

Current Research Projects:

Funded By
1 Development and refinement of finfish aquaculture technologies for sustainable brackishwater aquaculture development Institute
2 Evaluation of reproductive biology, breeding, larval biology and seed production of candidate finfish species for brackishwater aquaculture development Institute
3 Biotechnological interventions and application of bioinformatic tools for improvement of brackishwater fish and shellfish Institute
