In the present work an attempt has been made to study energy value of metabolism (respiration or oxygen consumption) in a fresh water teleostean fish, Channa striatus (Bloch) at water temperature 29.5±1.00C. The energy value of total metabolism (R) ranged from 723.1-10390.3 Joule/day/fish within the weight range 9.3 to 103.0 gram fish. The percentage of total energy of food (C) used in the metabolism (R) ranged from 36.0-40.7% with a clear trend of decrease in R value with increasing body weight. The details have been discussed in this paper.
The genus Krimi was established by Burt in 1944 with its type species K. chrysocolaptis,from Chrysocolaptis guttacristatus stricklandi,in Ceylon. Nine specimens of Cestode parasites were collected from the intestine of Gallus gallus domesticus. The present cestode have 55-60 number of strobilla; scolex large, rectangular in shape;rostellar sac large, extends up to the middle of the scolex; 18rostellarhooks; testes 25 to 30in numbers; cirrus pouch medium, oval; ovary is bilobed,each lobe with 7-8 acini;ootype small, oval; gravid proglottids large, broaderthan long.
