Abstract—The present study is attempted to understand a few characteristics of milt of the fish, Barbus conchonius. Spermatozoan of Barbus conchonius was the test material. It is available in milt, which can readily be stripped in adult males. When starved and fed males were employed the volume of milt slightly differ. In repeated strippings at two hours interval, the volume reduces significantly. Body size dependent volume of milt was observed in 1 to 3 g male fish. There were significant correlations between stripping frequency and volume of milt and also the weight of the fish. The sperm count is also made in both fed and starved fishes. Starved fish has less sperm count. Temperature alters the motile period. In the present study temperature has induced viability and speed of spermatozoa. Spermatozoa in fresh milt are immotile, only on dilution with water gains motility.
