Aquatic Weeds in Fish Culture: Prevention and Control Practices

Review Article of American Journal of Marine Research and Reviews Aquatic Weeds in Fish Culture: Prevention and Control Practices V. C. Asogwa1 & J. N. Asogwa2 1Department of Agricultural and Home Science Education, Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike, Abia State 2Department of Zoology and Environmental Biology, Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike, Abia State Concept of Aquatic Weeds in Fish Culture: Weeds are unwanted plants that grow where they are not wanted. Aquatic weeds are plants that grow in the pond where they are not wanted. These weeds, even though are not wanted in the pond by the farmer because of their effect mainly, some of them are essential parts of natural systems and form the basis of water body’s health and productivity. The habitat for aquatic weeds involve various proportions of water and soil, including intermittently wet ditches, ditches which always hold standing water, streams, stock ponds, farm ponds, lakes, ornamental ponds, and intermediate habitats.

Influence Individuals, communities and society to manage Wetland Environment

Review Article of American Journal of Marine Research and Reviews Influence Individuals, communities and society to manage Wetland Environment Ramachandra mohan M Water quality res lab, Dept of Zoology, Bangalore University, Bangalore 560 056, India Wetlands perform numerous valuable functions such as recycle nutrients, purify water, attenuate floods, maintain stream flow, recharge ground water, and also serve in providing drinking water source, fish, fodder, fuel, recreation to the society. The interaction of man with wetlands during the last few decades has been a concern largely due to land loss - accompanied by intensified industrial, commercial, and residential development further leading to pollution of wetlands by domestic, industrial sewage, and agricultural runoffs- as fertilizers, insecticides. The fact that wetland values are overlooked has resulted in threat to the source of these benefits South Indian wetlands are being lost on account of various anthropogenic activities .

Poultry Waste Recycling and Its Impact on Fish Production

Review Article of American Journal of Marine Research and Reviews Poultry Waste Recycling and Its Impact on Fish Production Sandeep Kour, Asma Khan and Sahar Masud Division of Livestock Production and Management, Sher e Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology, Jammu, 181102, India Fish is a animal source protein. It is one of the neglected areas because of unawareness among farming community, unfavorable government policies and high inputs involved in fish farming. Fish being rich in nutrients can help to alleviate the malnutrition of the local population. Fish plays an important role in the diet of the people of developing nations. In India, fish and fishing contribute immensely to the national economy by providing high animal food protein and generating employment, which is a means of poverty alleviation. Most importantly, it is the source of livelihood for a large section of economically backward population of the country. Integrated livestock farming will be novel approach for profitable and rumerative fish production. Poultry droppings can be a good source of nutrients for enhancing the productivity of aquatic production systems. Keywords: Fish, Poultry waste, Integrated farming ...

Effect of Induced Breeding of Clarias lazera using Hormones of HCG 

Research Article of American Journal of Marine Research and Reviews Effect of Induced Breeding of Clarias lazera using Hormones of HCG  Ahmed Mohammed Musa Ahmed Department of fish Sciences, Faculty of Agricultural Technology and Fish Sciences, Neelain University- Khartoum- Sudan This study was conducted to determine the artificial breeding performance of optimum dosage of hormones HCG to induce spawning in Clarias gariepinus at a hatchery. Three doses were prepared first treatmentT1(3000IU),second treatmentT2(2000IU), and finally treatmentT3(1000IU). Fish Body weight before injection with no significant(p>0.05). after injection there was significant between treatment (p<0.05) .spawning hours happened after 6 hours in treatmentT1 , followed by T2 after 9 hours , finally T3 after 10 hours. Eggs weight g was best in T1(63g), followed by T2( 25.67g) and finally T3 (9.67g) .The result revealed that fish stimulated with HCG obtained better eggs quantity was in the first treatment T1 (22313) followed by T2 (16443), finally T3 (8410) there was no significant between treatments in The fertilization rate %., Hatchability% , hatchability rate and survival rate (p>0.05). Keywords: induced , Breeding, Clarias gariepinus ...
