Keywords African Carp; River Benue; Length-Weight Relationship; Food and Feeding Habit Introduction In sub Saharan Africa, fishing activity is usually not monitored leading to the excessive use of obnoxious fishing practice and deliberate disposal of toxic and hazardous chemicals into water bodies. Therefore, it is important to understand the spectrum of food preferred by the fish in the wild so as to adopt same in captivity.

The results of this study reveals omnivorous feeding habit of African carp fish, this findings is similar to the report of OlatundeAdeyemi et al.

The standard length recorded in all the fish sampled ranges from The biometric parameters measured in this study are shown in Table 1 ; total length of male and female Labeo coubie ranges from Condition factor is also important for assessing the relative wellbeing of the fish population Kulbicki et al.

Test for goodness of fit was determined statistically using Chi- square x2 test on sex ratio. International Journal of Environmental Biology, 2 Pius and Benedicta further stated that the assessment of the stomach content of a fish reduce intra and inter specific competition for ecological niche as it is vital in providing straight forward models of stomach content and feeding dynamics.

Labeo senegalensis : fisheries

The ability of both species of fish investigated in this study to feed on a broad spectrum of feed as justified in this study and those of cited literature make them possible aquaculture candidate for domestication.

Please see our brief essay. The ADW Team gratefully acknowledges their support. This study investigated some aspect of the biology of Labeo coubie Ruppell, and Labeo senegalensis Valenciennes, from lower River Benue between June and September Currently many fish resources in Africa are depleted; inadequate management and unscrupulous practices is threatening aquatic life and natural habitats Adeyemo,there is an urgent need to take appropriate measures to mitigate continuous loss of aquatic lives.

The Animal Diversity Web is an educational resource written largely by and for college students. These features include shape of the reproductive organ and presence of nubs on the abdominal segment.

Help us improve the site by taking our senegalensiss. While some stomach contents were identified macroscopically, others were identified microscopically using a light microscope. However, with the omnivorous food items discovered in the fishes it may also be linked to the good feeding habit employed by the fishes, hence enabling them to utilize available food item within the environment.

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 town is divided into the North and the South bank by the River Benue.

Target species senealensis the study Labeo coubie and Labeo senegalensis were randomly sampled at each site every fortnight over a period of four months June — September at this time fish abundance is high. Map of Makurdi showing location of the study areas of sample collection.

According to Umaru et al. It is based on the hypothesis that the heavier the fish of a particular length, the better their physiological condition Bagenal, Animal Research International7Individual stomach contents were emptied into separate petri-dishes. Archives of Polish Fisheries23Pp Journal of Animal Ecology1936— Another aspect of fish biology that needs to be studied for a successful domestication program is seneglaensis feeding habit of the fish.
