MASS PRODUCTION OF FROG THROUGH INDUCED BREEDING AND GROWTH IN LABORATORY AND FIELD CONDITION – THE CASE OF INDIAN BULLFROG (Rana tigerina)
Tatwa P. Timsina
 
ABSTRACT
Frogs are one of the most used and abused animal in field and laboratory setting. They are persecuted for varieties of reasons making many of their species vulnerable. As they are used in large number for laboratory work and for food, there is need for induced breeding and mass production at field level. With the objective of developing protocol for induced breeding and mass production, the study applied both experimental and field based methods such as inoculation of pituitary gland and induced breeding at laboratory to revealing limiting factors for frog farming at field level. The study revealed that frogs could be artificially bred in both the laboratory and field condition. Various factors which play greater role in such process are covered in this paper.
