  1. An updated checklist of mussels and snails of Bangladesh through morphometric and DNA barcoding methods: potential for their conservation and propagation (2019-2021)

    Description: With the aim to genetic improvement of C. reba, cross breeding of this specie were performed

  3. Detection of pure breeds of Magur, Clarias batrachus (Linnaeus, 1758) through mitochondrial gene analyses: potential to ensure its sustainable aquaculture in Bangladesh

    Funded by: Special Allocation, NSICT, Government of Bangladesh

    Position: Principal Investigator

    Description: Bangladesh has substantially increased aquaculture production over the last few decades, and the exotic species share a significant portion of the total fish production. Although exotic species are contributing to aquaculture production, a few of them are causing biodiversity loss and genetic erosion of native species. The African catfish Clarias gariepinus is a highly carnivorous species and predates small indigenous freshwater fishes when escaping into natural water bodies. In addition, the hybridization of C. batrachus and C. gariepinus is considered a threat to the indigenous population. Although the government of Bangladesh has banned the farming of C. gariepinus, this species has been identified in local markets, and evidence of hybridization between C. gariepinus and C. batrachus has been found. This study revealed genetic erosion of native C. batrachus by the gene sequences of cytochrome c oxidase subunit I and cytochrome b. The phylogenetic tree confirmed the occurrences of hybridization between C. gariepinus and C. batrachus. Genetic erosion in the native catfish population is alarming for aquaculture sustainability and biodiversity conservation in Bangladesh.
