MORPHOMETRIC PARAMETERS OF RED BELLY TILAPIA (Tilapia zillii) lN EGBE DAM, GBONYl LOCAL GOVERNMENT, EKITI STATE NIGERIA

ABSTRACT

A total number of 60 Tilapia zillii specimens were collected from Egbe darn Gbonyin local government in Ekiti West for 25 days. Morphometric measurements taken in the laboratory include total length, standard length, body weight, body depth, dorsal fin length, caudal peduncle length, head length. fork length, and pre-dorsal fin length. Total number of 34 female Tilapia zillii were collected as 26 number of male Tilapia zillii were collected from the study area. The maximum total length obtained from fish samples is 17.9cm while the minimum length obtained is 13.1cm respectively. Also, the maximum weight obtained is I06.Sg while the minimum weight is 39.2gThe b-value which indicate allometric growth pattern for male Tilapia zillii is 2.57 and for female is 2.57. Similarly, the b-value for combined sex is 2.42. The condition factor (k) for male Tilapia zillii is 2.10 and the female has a value of2.I6 while 2.14 was recorded for the combined sex respectively. The study shows clearly that there was high correction between male Tilapia zillii (r=0.330) and the female(r=0.325). Also. for the combined sex there was weak correction within combined sex(r=0.336).
