  • Toxicological Impacts of Heavy Metals on Fish

    • Authors: Anirban Raha Roy, Chandan Sarkar
      Pages: 1 - 5
      Abstract: In recent times, heavy metals are frequently found in water as pollutants. Heavy metal toxicity has the potentiality to harm aquatic flora and fauna. Fish growth parameters, morphological characteristics as well as haematological, biochemical and physicochemical parameters may be important bio- indicator against this type of pollutants. The purpose of this review is to describe various heavy metals' toxic effects on fish. Heavy metals and its derivative compounds are common aquatic pollutants. Because most of the heavy metals are absorbed by fish and passed up the food chain to other fish eating species, it has an impact on not only aquatic ecosystems but also human via bioaccumulation. As a result, one of the goals of fish research is to learn about the toxicological effects of heavy metals on fish.

  • Evaluation and Demonstration of Integrated Fish (Cyprinus
           carpio)-Poultry-Forage-Vegetable production in Alicho Wuriro District,
           SNNPR, Ethiopia

    • Authors: Fikadu Amare Mekuria, Abayneh Utalo
      Pages: 6 - 14
      Abstract: The study was conducted in Silte Zone Alicho Wuriro district, situated at about 187 km Southwest of Addis Ababa, and the objectives were to evaluate and demonstrate the use of poultry manure as a fish feed and pond organic fertilizer and the profitability of fish-poultry-horticulture - forage in the integrated farming system. Poultry breeds of Bovine brown which was layers, fish species (Cyprinus carpio) and different varieties of horticultural and forage crops viz. carrot (Daucus carota L) and fodder beet (Beta vulgaris L.) variety were investigated. The data were collected over a period of December 2017 to July 2018. The production of the integrated system was high as compared to the non-integrated ones. The fish production was positively improved due to the presence of poultry manure and wastes in water that served as fertilizer for crops production.

  • Study on Major Reproductive Health Problems and Associated Risk Factors of
           Crossbred Dairy Cows in and Around Butajira Town, Southern Ethiopia

    • Authors: Tajebe Jerjero, Gizachew Hailegebriel
      Pages: 15 - 21
      Abstract: Reproductive problems of cows considerably affect dairy profitability. A study of questionnaire survey and regular follow-up was conducted to investigate major reproductive health problems and responsible risk factors in crossbred dairy cows in and around Butajira town. For this research, a total of 384 crossbred breed dairy cows were randomly selected out of which 41% (n=157) were found to be affected by one or more of the common reproductive health problems revealed by the study. With respect to study methods, 39% (96/246) and 44.2% (61/138) of the dairy cows studied by questionnaire survey and regular follow up, respectively were suffered from at least one type of identified reproductive health disorders. The study result also indicated the prevalent reproductive disorders, along with their prevalence rate to be 3.13% abortion, 6.51% anoestrus, 6% dystocia, 4.17% retained fetal membrane, 13.3% repeat breeding and 7.81% mixed cases. Of the considered risk factors, only parity status has shown to significantly (P<0.05) influence the occurrence of the problems in which pluriparous cows were more affected than first calve heifers. This particular study has pointed out that abortion, anoestrus, repeat breeding, dystocia and retained fetal membrane were the major reproductive health obstacles incriminated for the low productivity and associated economic loss of dairy industry in the study area. Awareness creation regarding the impacts of these problems with their associated risk factors and sound mitigation strategies need to be extended to dairy farmers in the efforts of controlling these challenges and increasing the desired productivity of the sector.

  • Impacts of Climate Change on Fishing in Adjoukrou Country in the
           Department of Dabou

    • Authors: J. Ahouyao, Y.C. Amani, K.G.M. Bouafou
      Pages: 22 - 27
      Abstract: This study aimed to analyze the impacts of climate change (CC) on fisheries in the department of Dabou. Our methodology is based on a mixed quantitative and qualitative approach, using direct observations in the field, a questionnaire survey, and individual semi-directive interviews. In Dabou, our interviews, surveys and observations reveal the disappearance of mangroves and the proliferation of water hyacinths, attributable to CC, in terms of biodiversity and the aquatic environment. This affects feeding habits and leads to a decrease in food resources and the reproduction of aquatic species. At the level of fishing yields, there is a progressive decline justified by the scarcity of certain aquaculture species (pike, skipper, millet) and even the disappearance of others (saumon) in the waters. As resilience measures to CC, the majority of fishermen adopt the “acadja” fishing system. Others opt for studies, agriculture and jobs in factories installed in the department.

  • Current Scenario and Future Prospects of Marine Life as Source of Food and
           Nutraceuticals: A Review

    • Authors: Payal Karmakar
      Pages: 28 - 33
      Abstract: With increasing public awareness regarding health, diet and nutrition, the stage is now to set for the use of seafoods and marine life for the development of functional foods and nutraceutical products. Since times immemorial, fisheries and aquaculture sector have been providing mankind with various benefits including employment, food and even nutraceuticals. Even animals are benefiting from marine life which act as source of nutrition and drugs for them. These are obtained from marine fishes and various oil seeds enriched with high fat content. Microalgae can produce the highest quantity of carotenoids, mainly astaxanthin. Similar to other industries, marine industry also faces various hurdles like production and commercialization of aquatic life, which can, in turn, affect the local and global economy. Right now, the worth of marine functional foods and drugs is in billions of dollars and is bound to increase in the years to come as more and more people are becoming aware of its health benefits. This review deals with the different varieties of marine life that have been effectively used in recent years as sources of food and nutraceuticals.

  • Veterinary Science Information: Sources and Usage

    • Authors: Meghna Mishra
      Pages: 12 - 14
      Abstract: This study looks at the sources of veterinary science knowledge and how practitioners use them. It is divided into three sections: a background discussion based on a selective literature review, a report of a survey of veterinary surgeons' information usage, and an overview of internet resources linked to this issue. Information sources and information management may be viewed as key components of veterinary professionals' ongoing professional development. Veterinary information supply is in flux, as it is in many professional fields, with electronic and audio-visual sources augmenting and, to some extent, challenging a range of printed sources built over many years.
