African Clarias taxonomy: Implications for the field worker.
In: 4th Annual Conference of the Fisheries Society of Nigeria (FISON)
, 26-29 November, 1985
, Port-Harcourt, Nigeria.
The taxonomy of African Clarias was reviewed. It was emphasized that much confusion still exists in this taxonomy. The major sources of this confusion were outlined. There are now only about 33 valid species of the 122 original species so far described in Africa. The implications of the present state of African Clarias taxonomy for the field worker were highlighted. In particular the need for the field worker to be an informed amateur taxonomist in addition to the possession of a good knowledge of the biology of his fish was emphasized. The connection between this and a successful Clarias culture was pointed out
