With yearn for food everywhere, start-up and scaling up insect-based food...

Methodology In Production Of Local Integrated Fish Meal Our Affordability In Abraka Delta State Nigeria

Fish for food is a vital resource for indigenous people in Nigeria, known for their hyper-prolific proteins and immerse contribution in rich dietary symbolism for daily nutritional healthiness. Due to high cost and shortage in commercialized fish meal, it was deemed to design a formulated preparation and processing techniques for local integrated fish meal which would provide a guide to unmarketable production and the catalyst for commercialization of integrated fish feed production process t...

Density Diversity Assessment Of Macro invertebrates Of River Illah Delta State Nigeria

The inquiry was directed at estimating the even nature of diversity to density quotient of macro benthic invertebrates at River Illah. Macro benthic invertebrates were obtained using kick sampling techniques while water samples were quantified using standard methods of analysis. Results divulge that Odonata and Crustacea were preponderant consisting (18.45%) of total abundance. Waters from River Illah were well oxygenated (5.2 - 6.8 mg/l), contained low BOD5 (2.4 – 3.5 mg/l) and had a moder...

Floor type Characterization Temperature And Humidity Tolerance For Tunga Penetrans Infestation In Igbokoda Ondo State Nigeria
