PERFORMANCES OF CIAMIS AND BANYUMAS CULTIVATED GOURAMI: Based on morphological and meristic study
Recently, a study which was aimed to observe performances of Ciamis and Banyumas cultivated gourami was done. The cultivated fish were collected from those areas were subjected as reseach object which is part of a research series dealing with the Indonesian gourami genetic diversity. A survey applying a purposive random sampling was done to collect all samples from those two different areas, of each location it was taken 60 parental fish consists of 30 male and 30 female ones. Several parameters like,Â bodyâ€™s size, colour, total length, total weight, total spines of the fins, total number of scales on the lineal lateralis. Data obtained from this research were then analysed descriptively based onits morphological and meristic charaters. In tgenral the gourami fish of Banyumas and Ciamis, are similar and even tend to the colour of Gourami soang However, the body of the Ciamis fish is larger than those of Banyumas fish. The Ciamis male were varies between 55 â€“ 61 cm length and 2.850 â€“ 3.810 g weight, while the Banyumas fish has 52 â€“ 57 cm length and 2.310 â€“ 3.200 g weight.Â The Ciamis female, has 51 â€“ 53,5 cm length with 2.000 â€“ 2.360 g weight, and Banyumas female has 48,5 â€“ 50,5 cm length and 2.000 â€“ 2.340 g weight.
