Abstract—A study was performed to understand the reproductive biology and gonad histology of freshwater mud eel Monopterus cuchia for a period of 6 months. Gonadosomatic Index (GSI) and ova diameter were found to range between 0.31 to 1.85 and 0.53 mm to 4.20 mm, respectively. The GSI value chromonologically increased and found to peak in June (1.85). The highest ova diameter reached in June. Mean absolute and relative fecundity were 645.13±92.12 and 2.52±0.29, respectively. The percentage of Early Perinucleolus (EPN) stage was highest in March (7.67±1.53%) while Late Perinucleolus (LPN) stage was highest in April (31.00±2.65 %) and Cortical Alveoli (CA) stage appeared from April and reached to maximum in May (10.67±2.08%). Vitellogenic stage (VG) was found in ripe phase, prevailed from May to June and chronologically increased and highest percentage of ripe oocytes were recorded in June (33.67±3.51%). 

Index Terms—threatened fish, mud eel, GSI, gonad histology, fecundity
