Comparative study of growth rates, condition factors and natural mortality of Oreochromis niloticus fish from culture fisheries and capture fisheries at Lake Kariba, Zambia

Oreochromis niloticus were sampled from culture fisheries (Yalelo, Fwanyanga and Choombwe) (n = 211) in April and May, 2020. Capture fisheries (Siavonga and Sinazongwe) (n = 198) were sampled between April and November, 2020. The research was aimed to study the population parameters (growth rates, condition factors and natural mortality) of O. niloticus at Lake Kariba. The results showed that fish at culture fisheries...

Proximate composition, mineral content, peroxides and rancidity in open sun and solar-tent dried small sardine fish in Malawi

This study examined protein and fat content, mineral composition and peroxides of fresh and dried small sardines (Engraulicypris sardella), locally known as usipa in Malawi. This species of fish is endemic to Africa, neglected and consumed largely by low-income families. Samples were collected immediately after harvesting, drying, transportation and marketing for three days. Association of Official Analytical Chemists...
