Article
Full-text available
The study evaluated the genetic signatures of the fishes from the two populations and compared the pattern of differentiation of the two populations with a view to separating the species from the different populations into possible sub-species. Forty (40) specimens were collected from River Niger (Lokoja) and Asejire Resevoir. The DNA of the twenty...
Article
Full-text available
Selection response and realized heritability estimate for growth were investigated in Heterobranchus bidorsalis using divergent selection for High (H) and Low (L) growth for a single generation. H.bidorsalis broodstocks from Dadinkowa dam was used to produce fingerlings in the hatchery of a commercial farm. High and low growth parents were selected...
Article
Full-text available
The study assessed oxidative stress and antioxidant response parameters in the liver, kidney and gills of the Giant African catfish; Heterobranchus bidorsalis. Fish were exposed to different Paraquat concentrations of 0.0mg L-1, 0.69mg L-1, 1.37mg L-1 and 2.75mg L-1 for 28 days. Oxidative stress (Lipid peroxidation) was measured as malondialdehyde...
Article
Non-specific immune response in three strains of Heterobranchus bidorsalis challenged with the bacterium Aeromonas hydrophilia was evaluated. The study was undertaken in three strains of H. bidorsalis from different ecological zones in Nigeria and the percentage cumulative mortality was lowest and significantly different (P<0.05) only in the Dadink...
Article
Full-text available
The efficacy of supplementing diets with ethanolic extracts from three medicinal plants (Arabic gum; Acacia arabica, Water lily; Nymphaea lotus, Iron weed; Vernonia ambigua) on the innate immune response and diseases resistance in Heterobranchus longifilis challenged with Pseudomonas aeruginosa were studied. H. longifilis juvenilles (20.4 ±3.8g) we...
Article
Full-text available
Cephalic abnormality (gill arch malformation) in four mating combinations involving cephalic and non-cephalic male and female Heterobranchus longifilis broodstocks were investigated in order to assess its frequency of level of occurrence in the offsprings and if it has any genetic basis. Percentage fertilization and hatchability were not significan...
Article
Full-text available
Thirty-nine morphometric and five meristic comparisons were carried out on 12-month-old interspecific and intergeneric hybrids of the African clariid catfishes Heterobranchus longifilis, Clarias gariepinus and Clarias anguillaris from experimental earthen ponds in Nigeria. Canonical discriminant analysis accounted for 89.4% of the variations, with...
Article
Full-text available
Reciprocal, interspecific hybrids of Clarias gariepinus and Clarias anguillaris were produced via hypophysation and dry stripping. Two-week-old fry (0.06 ± 0.02 g) of the parental Clarias species and their interspecific hybrids were stocked in duplicated 1 m3 hapas suspended in outdoor earthen ponds (16 m2) for a rearing period of 56 days. Growth a...
Article
Full-text available
Interspecific hybridization studies were carried out in Heterobranchus bidorsalis and Heterobranchus longifilis, to evaluate the mating combination (genetic cross) that will show heterosis in terms of growth and survival. Four genetic crosses were generated under controlled hatchery conditions. Highest weight gain (0.99g) and specific growth rate (...
Article
Full-text available
The piscicidal potential of water-extract mesocarp of Azadirachta indica (L) was studied in static bioassay experiment with continuous aeration to determine its acute toxicity The mortality rate and opercular ventilation under laboratory conditions over 96 hr exposure were monitored. The 96 hrLC50 was 81.28 mgl(-1) while the threshold value was 21....
Article
Full-text available
Hematological effects of feeding varying dietary crude proteins levels to one hundred and fifty (150) H. longifilis fingerlings was examined on biweekly basis. The fingerlings of mean weights 1.26g ±0.24g were stocked in eight hapa nets (1m x 1m xlm) at 15 fingerlings per hapa. Four experimental diets with crude protein: 35%, 40%, 45%, and 50% code...
