Macro-invertebrates including freshwater snails collected from 643 sites over 8 successive seasons among the River Nile, branches, main canals and certain drains in eight Egyptian Governorates. Thirteen snail species and one bivalve species were identified. The most distributed were Lanistus carinatus and Physa acuta while the most abundant were Cleopatra(More)
Stomach contents of M. piceus and C. idella collected from earthen fish ponds at Al-Abbassa fish hatchery during different seasons were examined. Food items were analyzed by three methods; the numerical (N%) percentage of point assessment (P%) and frequency of occurrence (F%). A comparison of the different methods emphasized the importance of snails as the(More)
Study of feeding habits of freshwater fishes collected from ponds at World Fish Center (ICLARM) showed that the African catfish, Clarias gariepinus and Forskal catfish, Bagras bayad had the highest proportion of full stomachs (31-58% & 44-45% respectively). In cichlid fishes, the rate of full stomachs was much lower, being 0.0-12.5% and showed higher(More)
In was found that the exposure of B. alexandrina to LC25 of fungicide (Isoprothiolane), herbicide (Anilofos) and plant extract (Euphorbia lactea) led to highly significantly elevated in the number of abnormal egg masses laid by treated snails in comparison with the control ones. The LC25 caused reduction in infection rate of B. alexandrina. It caused(More)
The effect of magnetic water on some biological parameters of B. alexandrina was investigated. The growth rate, egg laying capacity, hatchability of deposited eggs, development of the newly hatched snails and the mortality rate of the treated snails (maintained in magnetic water for 12 weeks) were determined and compared with control ones maintained in(More)
This study evaluated the effect of temperature, molluscicides (Copper sulphate and Niclosamide), fertilizers (Superphosphate and Ammonium sulphate) on the hatchability of Fasciola gigantica eggs. The results showed that hatchability decreased to 4% when eggs were incubated in bile secretion at 37 degrees C for 5 days and to 1.4% for 10 days, but few eggs(More)
The Egyptian freshwater was assessed in the River Nile, branches, main canals and certain drainages in eight Governorates, over eight successive seasons starting from spring 2008. Chemical assessment was made through ten parameters and the biological one was made through macro-invertebrates information. Results showed that means of Cd, Pb, Cu, Hg, Mn, Fe,(More)
The abundance of snail species in earthen fish ponds, irrigation and drainage canals at World Fish Center (ICLARM) in descending order was Bellamya unicolor (50.89%) > Physa acuta (18.94%) > Cleopatra bulimoides (7.6%) > Lanistes carinatus (6.73%) > Bulinus truncatus (5.19%) > Melanoides tuberculata (4.83%) > Lymnaea natalensis (3.14%) > Gabbiella(More)
The present study was aimed to investigate the impact of lining of the watercourses on histology and function of the gills of the tilapia fish. The investigated sites were divided according to the degree of the pollution into two study areas. The first study area was less polluted than the second one. Both areas were divided into two sites according the(More)
