Some aspects of reproductive biology on effect of heavy metal pollution on the histopathological structure of gonads in Labeo rohita (Hamilton-Buchanan) from Harike wetland, India

Water pollution caused by heavy metals affects breeding and development in fishes of Harike wetland. The effects of heavy metals on fishes are related to their uptake and accumulation by the organism, resulting in metal induced disturbances in the structures and functions of various tissues and organs. Early life stage of fish development, such as oocytes maturation is very sensitive to intoxication. Samples of the fish...

Morphometric and developmental characteristics of fish landed by artisanal bait fishers at the Mida Creek, Kenya

Although artisanal commercial and net fishers landings has received attention, the morphometrics of bait fisher landings is poorly documented. This is in spite of the importance of such data to infer fished stock growth and developmental status in order to reduce excessive removal of immature and highly fecund fish. This study compares fish species, size and weight, and derived fish condition, Gonadosomatic and Fishing...
