Brief findings :
The project was carried out at Harwan at Kashmir during 1968 to 1970 and reported that de-visceration, cleaning and partially boiling of indigenous fishes used in dietary mixture of trout had significantly reduced the incidence of whirling disease caused by the deficiency of vitamin B1 to 1.0% in farmed trouts. Various indigenous fishes, when given raw to farmed trouts, the incidence of the disease was 8% with Crossochelius latius given as a whole in supplementary feed, as compared to Schizothoracinae spp. (3.37%) and Cyprinus carpio (3.3%).
