Description. The head of Heterobranchus bidorsalis is shaped like an oval and has a rectangular dorsum. The snout is round and the eyes are lateral. The frontal fontanelle is long and narrow while the occipital fontanelle is relatively long and is shaped like an oval. The postorbital bones are completely united.

The Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus, is an African freshwater cichlid and one of the world’s most important food fishes. Owing to its hardy nature, and its wide range of trophic and ecological adaptations, it has been widely introduced for aquaculture, augmentation of capture fisheries and sport fishing ( Trewavas, 1983; Welcomme, 1988 ), and is now found in every country in the tropics.
African catfish are mentioned within traditional capture-based aquaculture (known as wheddos in Benin and Ghana and barochois in Mauritius) for centuries. Their culture in modern times follows a similar trend to that of tilapias: first domestication trials by the year 1950 and adoption of the North African catfish Clarias gariepinus as the most desirable catfish for aquaculture in the mid 1970s.
The favoured catfish species in Nigeria aquaculture include: Clarias gariepinus, Heterobranchus bidorsalis, Clarias X Heterobranchus hybrid (Heteroclarias) and Clarias nigrodigitatus. Heterobranchus spp. is the more commonly cultured fish in the South Eastern parts of Nigeria.
Fuzzy-rough feature selection and a fuzzy 2-level complementary approach for classification of gene expression data Classification of gene expression data is an important issue in medical diagnosis of disease such as cancer. In this paper first Fuzzy-Rough Set theory is established to select relevant features for classification.
Importance of fish farming Fish farming is important to man in the following ways 1. It is a source offish for food. Fish is a good source of protein in human diets. 2. It makes good use of the land that would have otherwise .Milable for arable farming. 3. It serves as a source of employment for fish farmers, 4.
The Nile crocodile, C. Niloticus of Africa is undisputedly one of the fiercest predators ever that roam on our planet. They have been on top of the food chain for more than 3 million years, and their adaptability indicates that they are here to stay.
Such water is found in springs, rivers, ponds, lakes, etc. Fishes that are found in fresh water habitat are called fresh water fishes. Examples include electric fish, moon fish, cat fish as clarias and heterobranchus longifilis, gymnarchus niloticus, and tilapia spp. DIAGRAM Figure 3.9.2: Tilapia galilaeus (St. Peter's Fish).
The experiament involved the polyculture of Heterobranchus longifilis and Tilapia.niloticus at different stocking ratios of 20 catfish with 20, 60, and 100 Tilapias at 11,111, 22,222, and 33,333.
Quantitative evaluation of predation efficiency of two hybrid clariid catfishes ((Heterobranchus longifilis x (Clarias gariepinus and (H. bidorsalis x (C. gariepinus) in controlling recruitment and while producing adult (market-size) Oreochromis niloticus was conducted in small earthen ponds (200 m2) using three tilapia:hybrid catfish stocking combinations (5:1, 10:1, 20:1).
The phytoplanktons found in the Federal University of Technology Akure (FUTA) was studied from April to August 2017 which spanned for 5 months which took place in two sampling sites, the Fisheries and Aquaculture Technology Research Farm pond (FAT pond) was the first sampling station while Crop Science and Pest Management water body was the.
Fig. 3 Reproductive behavior of tilapia; Oreochromis niloticus Introduction of tilapia to Asia and to the world Although aquaculture is considered an old tradition, modern aquaculture is essentially a post-1950 phenomenon. O. niloticus became the preferred tilapia species for aquaculture in the region (3).
The growth performance of Oreochromis niloticus in polyculture with clariid catfishes was studied. The experiment was designed as two (stocking ratio) by three (species combination) factorial in a completely randomised design. Monoculture of O. niloticus served as the control. Each treatment was replicated three times. The stocking ratios were 1:2, 2:1 clariid catfish to O. niloticus and the.
Commonly, tilapia nilotica is still used by some scientists who don’t accept the modern classification (1).

A crocodile is a large amphibious reptile.It lives mostly in large tropical rivers, where it is an ambush predator.One species, the Australian saltie, also travels in coastal salt water.In very dry climates, crocodiles may aestivate and sleep out the dry season. The modern type of crocodile appeared first in the Eocene period, but its ancestors go much further back, to the Upper Triassic.
