Common Garden Experiments Confirm the Impact of Salinity on Reproductive Traits that is Observed in Wild Populations of the Black-Chinned Tilapia Sarotherodon Melanotheron

The black-chinned tilapia Sarotherodon melanotheron is a very hardy species, particularly notable for its ability to tolerate a wide range of environmental salinities. The impact of environmental salinity on reproductive traits has been well documented in this species under natural conditions, but few studies have been experimentally conducted to prove such a relationship.

Decadal Variation of Dissolved Oxygen in the Lower Gangetic Delta Water

We analyzed the Dissolved Oxygen (DO) level in the surface water off Namkhana, a sampling station in the lower Gangetic delta region. Our three decade analysis in three different seasons (premonsoon, monsoon and postmonsoon) exhibits a decrease in the DO value with the passage of time. Based on the DO value we carried out a premilinary Water Quality Index (WQI) analysis using the average seasonal temperature of the study region.

Pre-Scaling Up of Solar Tent Fish Drier in Northern and North Western Part of Lake Tana, Ethiopia

Solar tent fish drier (STFD) reduce post-harvest losses, thereby ensuring continuous availability of cheap animal protein. This study aimed to: (1) minimize post harvest losses by improving the shelf life dried fish; (2) enhance technology multiplication and dissemination system; (3) create clear insight about the technology implementation. This study was carried out in the northern and northwestern part of Lake Tana from June, 2014 to June, 2015. Purposive sampling methods were used to select Dembiya, Alefa and Gondar zuriya districts with their respective locality.

Analysis on the Molecular Biologic Characteristics and Expression of Lysozyme C Separated from Oplegnathus fasciatus

Background and Aim: lysozyme has been known as a significant component of the innate immune system of fish. It is reported that the g-type and c-type lysozymes have been identified in fish. Oplegnathus fasciatus is one of the economically important cultured species, generating higher market value and demands in Korea. Contrary to the heavy consumption of O. fasciatus, however, there has been very limited information on their immune system and immunity genes responding against diseases.
