Common carp (Cyprinus carpio) is one of the commercially important and commonly cultured fishes. The common carp are multiple breeders that produce adhesive eggs. The aim of this study is to reduce egg stickiness and increase the fertilization and hatching rate.The study was conducted from October to November 2021 at Ma Fatema fish hatchery, Chanchra, Jashore Sadar Upazila, Bangladesh. In this study, pineapple juice, milk powder and urea+salt with three different rinsing times in each were used to observe the impact on adhesiveness, fertilization and hatching rate of C. carpio eggs.In the case of pineapple juice solution, 3 minutes rinsing treatment showed the highest percentage of free eggs (90.00±4.54%), fertilization rate (85.00±7.00%) and hatching rate (87.00±7.54%) with significant difference (P<0.05) from 5 minutes and control group. Among three different rinsing times, 20 minutes of treatment of milk powder solution exposed the maximum percentage of free eggs (84.00±7.93%), fertilization rate (80.00±5.56%) and hatching rate (85.00±6.00%). Twenty (20) minutes of treatment was significantly different (P<0.05) from 15 minutes treatment for the percentage of free eggs and with 25 minutes treatment for the fertilization and hatching rate. The highest percentage of free eggs (94.00±2.00%), fertilization rate (90.00±3.60%) and hatching rate (82.00±2.64%) was observed at 5 minutes rinsing treatment of urea+salt solution and it was significantly different (P<0.05) from 1-minute rinsing treatment for the percentage of free eggs and fertilization rateand for the hatching rate of 10-minute rinsing treatment.
