A study of optimal utilization of wood resource through alternative use of wood waste in fish smoking

This study was conducted to determine and compare the suitability and efficiency of wood wastes (sawdust and wood shavings) as alternative energy sources to fuel wood in fish smoking with a view to enhancing optimal utilization of the wood resource. Fish samples collected were smoked with fuel wood, sawdust and wood shavings using Kainji portable smoking kiln. Proximate compositions of the samples were determined and...

Differentially expressed genes in the pituitary of the Amazonian fish Arapaima gigas

Arapaima gigas, known as pirarucu, is one of the largest tropical freshwater fish and an icon fish species of the Amazon. Many studies on reproduction of A. gigas have been developed but a significant gap persists. To analyze the gene expression profile of A. gigas from wild stocks, four cDNA libraries from pituitary of young and adults of males and females were developed. Among the differentially expressed genes, 97...

Limitations in decision context for selection of amazonian armoured catfish acari-bodó (Pterygoplichthys pardalis) as candidate species for aquaculture

Domestication of native species is essential to development aquaculture. However, complete information on criteria used to categorize fish native species is little available and scarce. The objective of this work is to perform narrative review, critically evaluating the problem to selection of amazonian armoured catfish named acari-bodó (Pterygoplichthys pardalis) as candidate species for aquaculture, assigning...
