  The apparent digestibility coefficient of raw sunflower (Helianthus annuus) and sesame (Sesamum indicum) seedmeal by Clariid catfish (Clarias gariepinus) fingerlings was evaluated at 15,30 and 45% levels of replacement, respectively using soybean meal based diets as control diet. There was significant difference (p<0.05) in Apparent Organic Matter digestibility (AOMD), Apparent Protein Digestibility (APD), Apparent Energy Digestibility (AED) Apparent Carbohydrate Digestibility (ACD) between the fish fed control diet and the fish fed test diets. However, there was no significant difference (p>0.05) in apparent lipid and fibre digestibilities of fish fed control diet and test diets RSF15 and RSM15.

  Haematological changes in Clarias gariepinus fed the diets containing raw sunflower and sesame seed meal substituting soybean meal was evaluated in a seventy day feeding trial. Seven isonitrogeneous and isocaloric diets containing sunflower and sesame seed meal replacing soybean meal at a rate of 15, 30 and 45% were prepared. A diet without replacement of soybean meal served as control. The result of fish fed test diets showed significant (p<0.05) difference over the fish fed control diet with respect to PCV and Mean Corpuscular Volume (MCV). Fish fed control diet had the lowest Hb, PCV, WBC, RBC, MCV, MCHC and ESR. There was no significant difference (p>0.05) in the fish fed control diet and test diets with respect to MCH, MCHC and ESR. Hence, it can be concluded that the haematological parameter of Clarias gariepinus is not significantly (p>0.05) changed with increase dietary inclusion of raw sunflower and sesame seed meal.

  Interspecific hybrids of Clarias gariepinus and Clarias anguillaris were produced by employing the technique of hypophysation and dry stripping. Investigations on their aquaculture potential in terms of growth and survival were carried out. About 2 weeks old fry (0.06±0.02 g) of the parental Clarias species and their interspecific hybrids were stocked in hapa nets (1 m2) suspended in outdoor earthen ponds (16 m2) in triplicates for a rearing period of 56 days. Weight increase in the parentals and the reciprocal hybrids were assessed fortnightly. Studies revealed that the growth of the hybrids were intermediate to the parental Clarias gariepinus but higher than Clarias anguillaris. The weight gain attained by Clarias gariepinus, Clarias anguillaris, C. gariepinus (♂) x C. anguillaris (♀) and C. anguillaris (♂) x C. gariepinus (♀) were 3.18, 2.99, 3.16 and 3.05 g, respectively. Among the interspecific hybrids, the growth of C. gariepinus (♂) x C. gariepinus (♀) was higher than its reciprocal hybrid cross of C. anguillaris (♂) x C. gariepinus(♀). Survival of the reciprocal hybrid crosses at 8 weeks were also intermediate to that of the parental Clarias gariepinus but higher than C. anguillaris. Hybrids displayed positive heterosis for weight gain (0.65%) and survival (0.80%). The superiority of these growth traits of the hybrid groups at least over one of the parentals indicates hybrid vigor. Hence, hybrids in both directions appear to have considerable potential for use in aquaculture.

  The proximate composition, pasting characteristics, Water Absorption Capacities (WAC), Oil Absorption Capacities (OAC), bulk densities (packed and loosed), Least Gelation Concentrations (LGC) swelling capacity, solubility, and viscosity of fermented and unfermented maize-tilapia mixes namely -MUF1, MUF2, MFF3 and MFF4 was investigated. WAC, OAC, PBD, LBD and LGC obtained are 271.7%; 176.0%; 0.570gmL-1; 0.468g/ml; 10% (w/v) and 253.3-300%; 150.0-246.7%;0 355-0.468gmL-1; 0. 513-0.610gmL-1; 4.0-8.0% (w/v) respectively. Solubility and swelling power increased with increase in temperature. Viscosity increased with increase in the cold paste concentration and temperature. Peak viscosity of MF was 300RVA and 253.83-270.33 RVA in the formulated maize-tilapia mixes.
