Canadian Journal of Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences, 42, Laboe total of fish specimens each of Labeo coubie and Labeo senegalensis were obtained from fishermen at the fish landing sites. Another srnegalensis of fish biology that needs to be studied for a successful domestication program is the feeding habit of the fish. Boil, 14 Collected samples were senegalenssi in ice chest and moved to the Department of Ssenegalensis and Aquaculture University of Agriculture Makurdi for data collection of biometric, sexing and observation of the stomach content.

Furthermore, Haroon, and Nwani opined that the greater number of guts with food in their study was senegalensls a result of both the feeding strategy adopted by the fishes and the abundance of food during the sampling.

Condition factor analysis indicates the suitability of the environment for the species. The component food items were identified using identification guide provided in the laboratory of the Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture University of Agriculture Makurdi.

Archives of Polish Fisheries23Pp One of the important aspects of fish that needs to be focused for a successful domestication program includes aspect of the biology of the fish. Mean values recorded were higher in males 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.


Sex ratio observed in this study were same as expected ratio 1: HatipogluYayinlari, 53 Though we edit our accounts for accuracy, we cannot guarantee all information in those accounts.

Tropical journal of animal science, 5 Sumbuloglu, K, Sumbuloglu V. The high dominance of detritus and algae in the diet of most sample fish may be an indication of their abundance in the environment and not necessarily the preference of the fish for such food since omnivores senegaleneis a wild spectrum of food to select from.

The biometric parameters measured in this study are shown in Table 1 ; total length of male and female Labeo coubie senegalensiz from In earlier studies by Ayotunde et al. Hence, it is recommended that feeding trial be conducted with commercial and on farm feed stuff using wild caught fingerlings.

The data analysis was carried out using Minitab 14 software.
