Condition factor is also important for assessing the relative wellbeing of the fish population Kulbicki et al. One of the most commonly estimated biological aspects of fish is the length-weight relationship and condition factor Mendes et al.
It is based on the hypothesis that the heavier the fish of a particular length, the better their physiological condition Bagenal, Some other aspect of the biology of the fish e. Percentages gotten from these two methods were pulled together and the means and standard error determined. Mean condition factor for all the fishes were greater than one, with the highest value recorded in male L.
While some stomach contents were identified macroscopically, others were identified microscopically using a light microscope. Lake and Reservoir Management, 23 Length-weight relationship revealed isometric growth in both sexes of L.
WoRMS – World Register of Marine Species – Labeo senegalensis Valenciennes,
This study recorded significant differences in length and weight measured for the different sexes of the two species of Labeo. They are highly valued fish food in African countries and usually known for their sweet tastes and rich source of protein Rahman,Ayotunde et al.
Journal of Fisheries and Aquatic Research1 Superclass Gnathostomata jawed vertebrates. Individual stomach contents were emptied into separate petri-dishes.
Labeo senegalensis Valenciennes, 1842
Class Actinopterygii ray-finned fishes. The results of this study reveals omnivorous sejegalensis habit of African carp fish, this findings is similar to the report of OlatundeAdeyemi et al. Amer FishSoc, Okafor et al rightly opined that most commercially important fish species have not been successful cultured on a commercial scale due to insufficient knowledge of the biology of these fishes, hence, in order to senegqlensis any of these fish species successfully in captivity, a good knowledge of their biology is important.
Analysis of stomach content in L. According to Woottonfood and feeding habits are indispensable part of biological and taxonomic studies, because it is an essential function of an organism as growth, development and reproduction are all-dependent on energy that enters an organism in the form of food.
Knowledge of length-weight relationship has numerous practical applications in fisheries biology Benedito-Cecilio et al. Seattle, WA and London: Canadian Journal of Genetics and Cytology, 27, Adeyemi further opined that senegalendis relationships can be used to assess growth fluctuations due to changes in food composition, environmental variables, and spawning conditions among other factor. Pakistan Journal of Zoology31The food items encountered were analyzed using frequency of occurrence method Hynes, and point method Cortes, as stated in the formulae below.
This has resulted in significant loss of aquatic lifehabitats destruction and generally reduction in fish yield Adeyemo,Solomon et al. ADW doesn’t cover all species in the world, nor does it include all the latest scientific information about organisms we describe.
HatipogluYayinlari, 53 Journal of Aquatic Sciences, 449— Pauly, D, Some simple methods for the assessment of tropical fish stocks. Sampling time was between senegaldnsis This is similar to the findings of Olele on feeding habit of Hyperopisus bebe occidentalis Gunther, caught in Warri River. The component food items were identified using identification guide provided in the laboratory of the Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture University of Agriculture Makurdi. The Environmentalist, 23 Species Labeo senegalensis African carp.
