Abstract: In clariid catfish culture, it is a common practice to sacrifice male broodfish to remove the testes during artificial fertilization of eggs. The present paper describes a technique for the routine ablation of the testes in Heterobranchus longifilis without killing the donor males. The advantages of this technique of 'partial gonadectomy' in aquaculture hatcheries are discussed.
