A�The spermatozoa quality ofA�goramy after 2 d sub-zero freezing was examined. The quality of spermatozoa examined included motility,A�viability, and abnormality. We aimed to determine the optimum concentration of glycerol protectingA�spermatozoa during preservation. We used 0%, 1%, 3%, 5%, 7%, and 9% of glycerol, respectively. Sperms wereA�diluted by the combination of glycerol and fish ringer (1 part of sperm + 3 part of solvent). The dilute spermsA�were then equiliberated at 4A�C for 45 min, and were freezed at -34A�C for 2 d. Thawing was then carried out atA�30A�C for 2 min. Based on Dunnet test, 5% of glycerol was the optimum concentration maintaining spermatozoaA�motility (75.95A�4.76)%.
