Abstract

The growth response of Clarias gariepinus was investigated in various types of fertilizers. Fertilizer type was found to influence plankton abundance which in turn determine the growth and well being of C. gariepinus. The best weight increase recorded was in cow dung /NPK (1.37~c1.01g) followed by poultry (0.49~c0.31g), NPK/poultry (0.05~c0.25g) and NPK(0.03~c0.57g) The survival rate in these treatments were cow dung/NPK (100%), poultry (100%), NPK/cow/poultry (33%) and NPK (8%)
