FISHERY AND AQUACULTURE PROJECT TOPICS AND RESEARCH MATERIALS


  • 1. ASSESSMENT OF SOME HEAVY METALS IN SEDIMENT OF IKPOBA RIVER

    » CHAPTER ONEINTRODUCTION1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDYSediment is the loose sand, silt and other soil particlesthat settle at the bottom of the body of water (USEPA, 2002). It can come from soil erosion or from decomposition of plants and animals. Wind, water andice help to carry these particles to rivers, lakes andstreams.Sediments near urban areas commonly contain high levels of contaminants (Lamber...Continue Reading »

    » CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION 1.1 BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY Aquaculture of tilapias provides a classic example of a success story of a species group outside its natural range of distribution. The group currently contributes about 3.8 percent to the cultured fish and shellfish production of about 40 million tonnes globally (FAO FishStat, 2002). The current aquaculture production of tilapias in 2002 is abo...Continue Reading »

    » CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION 1.1 BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY Global demand for mud crabs has risen over the past decade, led by expanding wealthier markets such as those in Asia, America and parts of Africa. This demand has largely been met by exploitation of wild stocks, causing many to go into decline. Current trends in these fisheries suggest this exploitation is unsustainable. This situation continues...Continue Reading »
