We finally managed to get fingerlings for the other 2 varieties of Major Carps – Catla and Rohu. These we got from the plains from the fisheries department near the Bhavani Sagar reservoir.
We purchased about 6000 fingerlings overall. They gave them to us in plastic bags that were filled with oxygen at the top so the fish could survive the 3 hour journey by road to our farm. That they did – only the fingerlings were really small and I hope they will not get eaten by the other fish or frogs and snakes. No options but to wait and see.
