Is there a topic on this in his site? Or that we can goto see?
Thanks. Not that i will try this. I'm just curious on when they knew they could try this? At what stages in their life that they could tell? If any.
I've read somewhere they have built ponds in other S.American countries as well, in order to breed p's for foreign export. If I remember correctly, it was in Brazil (Redbellies) and Venezuela (Cariba).
to clarify you are stripping fish not gutting them.on many fish farms fish are stripped and the eggs are artificially inseminated. it seems that it could be done with p's also. that would make breeding particularly aggressive p's far easier.
a part of the answer to that question is that the demand for p's is not that high. i know everybody here likes them but in the general population the demand is not that great. on a small scale basis someone could probaly do well with artificial breeding. something to think about.
P's aren't rare like was just said. Just a handful of them are being experimented on that are found in rare in nature. Like P. piraya and the one Frank determined sex on the wimple piranha which is very rare. Aquaculture people in S.A. are trying to save some of them. But don't think you will see to much done on common red bellies or rhombeus.
