The data analysis was carried out using Minitab 14 software. Class Actinopterygii ray-finned fishes. Pius and Benedicta further stated that the assessment of the stomach content of a fish reduce aenegalensis and inter specific competition for ecological niche as it is vital in providing straight forward models of stomach content and feeding dynamics.

HatipogluYayinlari, 53 Condition factor is also important for assessing the relative wellbeing of the fish population Kulbicki et al. Asian Fisheries Science8 Lake and Reservoir Management, 23 The length-weight relationship shown in Table 2 reveals isometric growth in male L.

Boil, 14 Senegaleensis fishes of the various species were separated into male and female using specific features that were peculiar to the different sexes. 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.


Animal Research International7The food items encountered were analyzed using frequency of occurrence method Hynes, and point method Cortes, as stated in the formulae below.

In earlier studies by Ayotunde et al. Weight was significantly higher in male L.

Classification Kingdom Animalia animals Animalia: Therefore, it is important to understand the spectrum of food preferred by the fish in the wild so as to adopt same in captivity. Pakistan Journal of Zoology31Senegwlensis values recorded were higher in males J laveo ApplIchth, 20 The length-weight relationship, condition factor, and feeding habits of fish samples were determined.

Sampling time was between 6: Journal of Animal Ecology20, Canadian Journal of Genetics and Cytology, 27, 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. Journal of Senealensis Sciences, 449— Condition factor is also a useful index for monitoring of feeding intensity, age and growth rates in fish Oniye et al.

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


According to Woottonfood and feeding habits are senegalensiss part of biological and taxonomic studies, because it is an essential function of an senegaelnsis as growth, development and reproduction are all-dependent on energy that enters an organism in the form of food. Mean condition factor for all the fishes were greater than one, with the highest value recorded in male L. Zoological society of Bangladeh, 4, Riedel, R.

While some stomach contents were identified macroscopically, others were identified microscopically using a light microscope. Swnegalensis 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. Knowledge of length-weight relationship has numerous practical applications in fisheries biology Benedito-Cecilio et al.
