Contributions to the reproductive biology of Tllapia Cabrae (Boulenger 1899) from a small lake in Imo State, Nigeria
Basic somatic characteristics such as male: female sex ratio, gonadosomatic index, breeding cyclicity and fecundity were determined and fecundity was positively and linearly correlated with total length, standard length, gutted weight and body weight.
Food and feeding habits of Distichodus engycephalus (Boulenger, 1907) of lake oguta: search for a sustainable aquaculture in the New Millennium
Food and feeding of Distichodus engycephalus (Boulenger, 1907), a potential culturable fish from Lake Oguta was investigated between March 2003 and October 2004 using the frequency of occurrence and…

Effects of sub-lethal concentrations of NPK (15:15:15) fertilizer on growth and feed utilization by the toothed carp Aphyosemion gairdneri under laboratory conditions
With the exception of the groups of fish exposed to 0.031 g/l, the fertilizer led to poor food conversion ratio (FCR) and protein efficiency ratio (PER) and these groups recorded a 100% mortality before the end of the eight week exposure period.
The effects of varying sampling intervals on the growth and survival of Heterobranchus longifilis (Valenciennes, 1840) fry in outdoor nursery management
For the best productivity in terms of survival and total biomass of fish at harvest, sampling of outdoor nursery tanks biweekly is recommended as the best sampling regime for the outdoor nursery management of Heterobranchus longifilis hatchlings.
Effect of different storage temperatures on bacterial spoilage of Oreochromis niloticus
Experiments on the spoilage of fresh sterile fish flesh indicated that Pseudomonas, Serratia and Bacillus were the agents of spoilage at 6°C and that temperatures as low as 20°C are needed to hinders bacterial proliferation and hence prevent bacterial spoilages of the fish.
Substitution of fish meal by duckweed Lemna minor meal in diets for Nile tilapia Oreochromis niloticus
It was concluded that 15% dietary duckweed meal can be incorporated in Nile tilapia diet without significant depression of growth and health of the fish.
The effects of different lipid sources on performance of Koi carp ( Cyprinus carpio ) L fingerlings
A feeding experiment was carried out to determine the effect of different dietary lipid on the growth and survival of Koi carp L fingerlings and found the fingerlings fed with groundnut oil diet had the highest mean weight gain.
