Condition factor analysis indicates the suitability of the environment for the species. One of the most commonly estimated biological aspects of fish is the length-weight relationship and condition factor Mendes et al. Mean condition factor for all the fishes were greater than one, with the highest value recorded in male L. International Journal of Lakes and Rivers263— Knowledge of length-weight relationship has numerous practical applications in fisheries biology Benedito-Cecilio et al.
Test for goodness of fit was determined statistically using Chi- square x2 test on sex ratio.

The town is divided into the North and the South bank by the River Benue. Biological Journal of Linnean Society, 45 Help us improve the site by taking our survey.
Hence, it is recommended that feeding trial be conducted with commercial and on farm feed stuff senegalensks wild caught fingerlings. Zoological society of Bangladeh, 4, Riedel, R.
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. Females Sex ratio L. One of the important aspects of fish that needs to be focused for a senegapensis domestication program includes aspect of the biology of the fish.
IUCN Red List of Threatened Species
The length-weight relationship, condition factor, and feeding habits of fish samples were determined. Visit for more related articles at Journal of FisheriesSciences. The lengthweight relationship of fish reported in 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.

Fish sample for this study were obtained from fishermen at three major landing sites in Makurdi. Class Actinopterygii sensgalensis fishes. Canadian Journal of Genetics and Cytology, 27, Canadian Journal of Fisheries and Aquatic Science, 55 Though we edit our accounts for accuracy, we cannot guarantee all information in those accounts. This has resulted in significant loss of aquatic lifehabitats destruction senfgalensis generally reduction in fish yield Adeyemo, senegalemsis, Solomon et al.
Four species of this genus are largely found in rivers and they includes, Labeo senegalensisLabeo pseudocoubie, Labeo rhohita, and Labeo coubieof these four species recorded in Africa, Labeo coubie is about the most common and can grow to about mm in length and 10kg in weight Idodo-umeh,Ayotunde et al.
A total of fish specimens each of Labeo coubie and Labeo senegalensis were obtained from fishermen at the fish landing sites.
Sampling time was between 6: Nutritional trials should be conducted using wild fingerlings to evaluate domestication potentials of these fish. Animal Research International7They are highly valued fish food in African labfo and usually known for their sweet tastes and rich source of protein Rahman,Ayotunde et al. Condition factor is also important for assessing the relative wellbeing of the fish population Kulbicki et al.
The fishes of the various species were separated into male and female using specific features that were peculiar to the different sexes. Percentages gotten from these two methods were pulled together and the means and standard error determined.
Journal of Animal Ecology1936— Tropical journal of animal science, 5 Pakistan Journal of Zoology31Pius and Benedicta further stated that the assessment of the stomach content of a fish reduce intra and inter specific senegalensix for ecological niche as it is vital in providing straight forward models of stomach content and feeding dynamics.
