IMPACT OF NYPA PALM (Nypa fruticans Wurmb) AND MANGROVES ON THE PLANKTON AND BENTHIC COMMUNITIES OF THE RIVER ANDONI, NIGERIA.

ABSTRACT The impact of Nypa fruticans (Wurmb) and mangroves on the plankton and benthic communities of Andoni river was carried out between January and August, 2017. Four stations were chosen based on Nypa palm and native mangrove species’ presence and absence. Water quality parameters include; pH 6.99±0.16, Temperature 28.20±0.050C, D.O 4.71±0.18mg/L, Conductivity 19.52±0.20µm/s, Salinity 10.76±0.07ppt, TDS 13.45±0.27ppt.  Mean values of the physico-chemical param...

Risk Analysis of Water Quality in Aquaculture. A case study of Ilorin metropolis, Kwara State, Nigeria

Agricultural products were among the primary export commodities together with petroleum products during the pre-independence era which made the Nigerian economy fairly stable then, contributing about 95% of the total Gross Domestic Product (GDP). After independence, there has been a steady and consistent decline in the value of agricultural products such that as at year 2002, it was estimated to be 32% of the nation’s GDP (Gross Domestic Product) which shows that economic growth in Nigeria ...

Effects of Dietary Supplementation of Eucalyptus globulus leaves in the diet of Heterobranchus bidorsalis Fingerlings

ABSTRACTThis project work was carried out to determine the Effects of Dietary Supplementation of Eucalyptus globulus leaves in the diet of Heterobranchus bidorsalis Fingerlings. Growth and nutrient utilization was studied for 70 days in 50 liters rectangular plastic tanks. Tanks were grouped into five (5) treatments in triplicates (ControlR1-3), (EG1R1-3), (EG2R1-3), (EG3R1-3) and (EG4R1-3). One hundred and fifty (150) fingerlings of Heterobranchus bidorsalis used were randomly distrib...

ASSESMENT OF CATFISH GROWTH IN RELATION TO FEEDING AND CHANGE IN WATER QUALITY IN DRY LANDS, CASESTUDY OF SEKU, KITUI.

ABSTRACTPhysical water quality parameters were conducted to assess raised fish pond waters in South Eastern Kenya University in relation to their potential for catfish culture uses. Water conductivity, TDS, salinity DO and temperature were monitored for a time period of two months in relation to feeding and growth of Clarias gariepinus. The physical water quality parameters results revealed a rising trend behavior thought the study. The result revealed that the physical water quality variable...
