These features include shape of the reproductive organ and presence of nubs on the abdominal segment. Journal of Fisheries and Aquatic Research1 Analysis of stomach content in L.

Length-weight relationship revealed isometric growth in both sexes of L. Individual stomach contents were emptied into separate petri-dishes.

The data analysis was carried out using Minitab 14 software. 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.

Keywords African Carp; River Benue; Length-Weight Relationship; Food and Feeding Habit Introduction In sub Saharan Africa, fishing activity is usually not monitored leading to sejegalensis excessive use of obnoxious fishing practice and deliberate disposal of toxic and hazardous chemicals into water bodies.

The component food items were identified using identification guide provided in the laboratory of the Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture University of Agriculture Makurdi. The fishes of the various species were separated into male and female using specific features that were peculiar to the different sexes.

This is similar to the findings of Olele on feeding habit of Hyperopisus bebe occidentalis Gunther, caught in Warri River. This study recorded significant differences in length and weight measured for the different sexes of the two species of Labeo.

Condition factor analysis indicates the suitability of the environment for the species. However, the differences observed between the sexes of the same species in this study may be oabeo by biological adaptations of the sexes to the prevailing environmental factor.

Mean condition factor for all the fishes were greater than one, with the highest value recorded in male L. Boil, 14 It is based labo the hypothesis lqbeo the heavier the fish of a particular length, the better their physiological condition Bagenal, This study investigated some aspect of the biology of Labeo coubie Ruppell, and Labeo senegalensis Valenciennes, from lower River Benue between June and September Another aspect of fish biology that needs to be studied for a successful domestication program is the feeding habit of the fish.


Length-weight relationship and condition factor of Labeo coubie and Labeo senegalensis from lower River Benue.

Hence, the spectrum and abundance of food item in the environment under study may determine food sengalensis of fish in the environment regardless of their feeding habit.
