Abstract

Investigation of some serum biochemical factors in Sohal surgeon fish (Acanthurus sohal) as indicators of aquatic pollution.

The present study was carried out on the Sohal surgeon fish Acanthurus sohal (family, Acanthuridae). Weight and length of each sample were recorded (Mean length 19.08 cm±1.69 SD and Mean weight 152.50 g±12.94 SD). Transferase enzyme activities of fish A. sohal were determined to establish possible...

Phenotypic and genetic parameters for ewe reproductive performances of Ouled-Djellal breed (Algeria).

Reproductive traits from 318 Ouled-Djellal ewes were recorded from 2008 to 2010. Genetic parameters were estimated for three basic and two composite traits. The basic traits were fertility, prolificacy and rate of survival. The composite traits were lamb weaned per ewe joined and weight of lamb per...
