DETERMINATION OF HEAVY METAL IN FRESH WATER FISH (CLARIAS CAMERONENSIS) FROM ETIM EKPO RIVER

CHAPTER ONE Introduction Heavy metals are any metals exposure to which is clinically undesirable and constitute a potential hazard. The presence of heavy metal in the aquatic environment is the major concern because of their toxicity of animal life, thus disturbing the natural ecological balance (Bhattachary et al., 2008). The occurrence of heavy metals in aquatic

CHALLENGES OF WOMEN INVOLVED IN AQUACULTURE ACTIVITIES (A CASE STUDY OF OTUOCHA, ANAMBRA EAST LOCAL GOVERNMENT AREA ANAMBRA STATE)

CHAPTER ONE Introduction   1.1 Background of the study Aquaculture can be considered as the aquatic complement to agriculture. Specifically, it is the husbandry of fish and/or other aquatic species in a controlled environment (Bardach et al., 1972; Lovell, 1979; Shell, 1983; Lindsay, 1985; Molnar et al., 1987). Molnar reported that the world catch of fish

COMPARATIVE STUDY OF THE GROWTH PERFORMANCE OF FOUR COMMERCIAL FISH FEEDS IN THE PRODUCTION OF AFRICAN CATFISH (CLARIAS GARIEPINUS).

PROJECT BODY: With global population expansion, the demand for high quality animal protein is rising dramatically (Yisa et al., 2006). Increased aquaculture production is clearly needed to meet this demand, because capture fisheries are showing serious decline due to over fishing, aquatic habitat destruction and pollution (FAO, 2004). World capture fisheries have been in a stable
