Morphometric length-weight relationships of wild penaeid shrimps in Malindi-Ungwana Bay: Implications to aquaculture development in Kenya

The present investigation describes the biology of penaeid shrimps and their fishery studies on morphometric length-weight relationships estimated during the two monsoon seasons from Malindi–Ungwana Bay in Kenya. A total of 1238 penaeid shrimps belonging to Fenneropenaeus indicus, Penaeus monodon, Marsupenaeus japonicus, Metapenaeus monoceros, Penaeus canaliculatus and Penaeus semisulcatus were collected from the two seasons with South East Monsoon (SEM) recording more diverse species than the North East Monsoon (NEM).

Different levels of probiotics affect growth, survival and body composition of Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) cultured in low input ponds

A 7-month experiment was carried out to determine the effects of different levels of probiotics (baker's yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) and Bacillus subtilis) on Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) reared in low input ponds.
