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. Sumbuloglu, K, Sumbuloglu V. Tropical journal of animal science, 5 The Animal Diversity Web is an educational resource written largely by and for college students. In a bid to conserve wild stock of two importantly exploited species of this genus in River Benue Labeo coubie and Labeo senegalensisthis study was designed to investigate some aspects of the biology of those fishes so as to provide background information for possible domestication of the fishes.

The data analysis was carried out using Minitab 14 software. Zoological society of Bangladeh, 4, Riedel, R.

Naga iclarm quarterly, 1626 — Amer FishSoc, Pauly, D, Some simple methods for the assessment of tropical fish stocks. This study investigated some aspect of the biology of Labeo coubie Ruppell, and Senegalenssis senegalensis Valenciennes, from lower River Benue between June and September A preliminary indicator to the formulation of the feed of some Tilapine fishes.

Collected samples were fixed in ice chest and moved to the Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture University of Agriculture Makurdi for data collection of biometric, sexing and observation of the stomach content.

While some stomach senegalehsis were identified macroscopically, others were identified microscopically using a light microscope. Therefore, it is important to understand the spectrum of food senegalensiis by the fish in the wild so as to adopt same in captivity.

However, the differences observed between the sexes of the same species in this study may be explained by biological adaptations of the sexes to the prevailing environmental factor. Boil, 14 Asian Fisheries Science8 Archives of Polish FisheriesseegalensisPp Studies on fish biology are indispensible aspect of sustainable management and conservation of fish biodiversity Solomon et al.

The Environmentalist, 23 Species Labeo senegalensis African carp. 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 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.

It is based on the hypothesis that the heavier the fish of snegalensis particular length, the better their physiological condition Bagenal, Target species for 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.

Length-weight relationship revealed isometric growth in both sexes of L. Bilateria bilaterally symmetrical animals. One of the most commonly estimated biological aspects of fish is the length-weight relationship and condition factor Mendes et al. The lengthweight relationship of fish reported labfo this study reveals isometric growth for majority of the sampled fish groups, meaning that the weight and length of the fish increases at approximately the same rate, hence the negative allometric growth recorded for female L.
