Epithermal instrumental neutron activation analysis technique was applied in the determination of concentration levels of three halogens-bromine, chlorine, and iodine in Sarotherodon melanotheron (Blackchin tilapia). The species is a delicacy of the people of Komenda Edina Eguafo Abrem Municipality (KEEA) in the Central Region of Ghana, as such thi...
Aquaculture development has been identified as a key process to meeting the demand for cheap and readily available source of protein. The resultant has been the springing up of cages along the Volta Lake with most farmers producing Nile tilapia. However, the sector faces an array of challenges which needs urgent attention. A study was undertaken to...
A study was conducted to investigate genetic diversity and population structure among populations of Nile tilapia Oreochromis niloticus (Cichlidae) in the Volta Lake of Ghana using microsatellite markers. Four hundred (400) fish specimens were obtained from nine naturally occurring subpopulations and one selectively bred strain, 'Akosombo strain'....
This study described some aspects of the reproductive biology of Blackchin tilapia (Sarotherodon melanotheron, Cichlidae) from Brimsu reservoir. A total of 457 specimens were sampled using a monofilament gill net of mesh size 25 mm from September, 2009 to September, 2010. Standard length for the species ranged between 7.5 and 17.6 cm, with both mal...
Consuming fish meal may have health benefits and also contain contaminants. The mean concentrations of ten trace elements (TE) in Sarotherodon melanotheron (Blackchin tilapia) obtained from the Benya Lagoon at Komenda Edina Eguafo Abrem Municipality (KEEA) in the Central Region of Ghana were determined. Since this fish is consumed as a whole, the p...
Background. Elevated concentrations of heavy metals in soil have detrimental consequences on the environment, which translates into damaging effects on humans. Objective. An evaluation was carried out to determine the concentrations of seven heavy metals (As, Cd, Cr, Cu, Hg, Pb, Zn) in soil sediments collected from 12 different stations within the...
