Bello UA, IM Girei, HF Maradun and AA BukarAbstract:
This study was carried out to investigate the effect of integrating fish with different rice varieties in order to determine the most effective variety on growth performance of Clarias gariepinus
. The experiment was carried out at the Integrated Fish Farm of National Institute for Freshwater Fisheries Research, New Bussa. The experiment involves three treatments (Rice sp. faro 45 + fish as Treatment 1, Rice sp. Faro 60 + fish as Treatment 2 and Fish only as Treatment 3 which serve as control). The result showed that in most of the growth performance parameters observed, Treatment 2 had the highest values and was significantly different from other treatments, which therefore, means that Rice Faro 60 is recommended to be used in fish cum rice integration for proper growth and yield of African catfish.Pages: 261-264 | 193 Views 18 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
