    Bacteriological examination of six brands of bottled drinking water samples produced by different bottled water producers in Nigeria was carried out to compare their bacterial quality. The bottled drinking water were bought from various sales outlets in Nigeria. The biochemical characteristics of the isolates and the sugar fermentation reactions of the isolates were s ...

    Published On: September 26, 2018 | Pages: 039 - 044

    Author(s): György Páczay*
    There is a huge potential in freshwater aquaculture in the EU and in other countries in the World. As for the World food demand fish had the second highest consumption levels, at 27.9 percent in 2014. There will be a sharp increase in demand for fish and aquaculture products as the UN FAO projects around 9 billion people living our planet by 2050. The economy has alre ...

    African Diplostomum (sensu Dubois 1961): Minireview on taxonomy and biology CrossMark

    DOI Logo 10.17352/2455-8400.000041

    Published On: September 25, 2018 | Pages: 031 - 038

    Author(s): Fred D Chibwana*
    Freshwater fisheries has a significant contribution to development as an important source of human proteins as well as in sport fishing and aquarium. Despite their importance, both wild and aquaculture fish suffer from a problem of parasitism, notably Diplostomum species, causing fish mortalities particularly in fingerlings. Although a considerable effort in understan ...

    Suspended Arrays Improve Rainbow Trout Growth during Hatchery Rearing in Circular Tanks CrossMark

    DOI Logo 10.17352/2455-8400.000040

    Published On: August 28, 2018 | Pages: 027 - 030

    Author(s): Eric Krebs, Nathan Huysman, Jill M Voorhees and Michael E Barnes*
    Environmental enrichment can be an effective tool to improve rearing efficiencies during hatchery production. This study evaluated the effectiveness of two different vertically-suspended arrays in circular tanks on the growth of juvenile rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss. Treatments consisted of an array of suspended aluminum rods, an array of suspended aluminum angle ...

    Colonization patterns of benthic macroinvertebrates in fertilized and non-fertilized earthen fish ponds CrossMark

    DOI Logo 10.17352/2455-8400.000039

    Published On: August 24, 2018 | Pages: 022 - 026

    Author(s): Patrick O Orwa*, Reuben Omondi and Emily J Chemoiwa
    Study conducted in Kwanza, Trans-Nzoia County to determine the colonization pattern of benthic macroinvertebrates in earthen fish ponds. This was done to ascertain the right stocking time of ponds when the natural fish food is in plenty. Two ponds were used for this study; one was treated with organic manure while the other was not fertilized. Sampling for physico-che ...
