These fishes were introduced into the farming system of Bengal from Thailand through Bangladesh in 1994-95. Though carnivorous at an early stage, the fish are compatible with Indian Major Carps from five days onwards and can grow to 3 kg/year on a balanced diet. These fish have already established their importance as profitable species in aquafarming of Bengal.
