Fish hatcheries of Bangladesh have started using milt purchased from Milt Bank that can revolutionize the country's fish production. Hatcheries of Bangladesh maintain similar numbers of male and female brood fish or outsource males to produce fry. This traditional system affects the level of seed production, lowers business profit, endangers biodiversity and leads to low quality seed. The USAID-funded Feed the Future Aquaculture project has established a pilot milt bank to address this problem and is working toward use of short-term preserved milt for large-scale commercial application in hatcheries. It is intended that the milt bank initiatives will eventually prevent inbreeding problems. The milt bank system is showing a promise of achieving 100% improved quality fish seed within 5 years and a reduction in overall operation costs.
