Abstract: Experiments were conducted on males and females of a major crop Cirrhina mrigala by injecting pituitary extract and ovaprim to observe the efficacy of ovaprim during induced breeding. The results were satisfactory and enhancing as ovaprim induced breeding in C. mrigala and the spawning took place within 9 hr with 91% overall fertilization. The present study suggests that ovaprim might be considered best substitute for pituitary extracts during induced breeding.
