Catch per unit effort and some water quality parameters of Lake Kalgwai Jigawa state, Nigeria This study investigated the catch per unit effort and water quality of Lake Kalgwai Jigawa state, Nigeria for the period of 10 month (July 2012‐June 2013). The man hours, gears used, and fish catches of the Lake was determined by assessing the fishermen operating on three major landing sites of the Lake, namely Marke (Site I), Dingare (Site II), and Kalgwai (Site III). Water samples from the landing sites were collected and analyzed. Concentration of fishers ranged from 41 (April) to 51 (September). The highest number of fishing hour was observed in August (64 hr), whereas the lowest was in March (49 hr). The average catch per fisher per day ranged from 107 kg/day (December) to 144 kg/day (August) during the study period. An average of 25 days was spent fishing in each month. The result also indicated similarities in the water qualities of all the three sampling sites per months. Based on the result gotten it was concluded that lake Kalgwa is not over fished and water quality are within recommended ranges for fish production. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Food Science & Nutrition Wiley

Abstract

This study investigated the catch per unit effort and water quality of Lake Kalgwai Jigawa state, Nigeria for the period of 10 month (July 2012‐June 2013). The man hours, gears used, and fish catches of the Lake was determined by assessing the fishermen operating on three major landing sites of the Lake, namely Marke (Site I), Dingare (Site II), and Kalgwai (Site III). Water samples from the landing sites were collected and analyzed. Concentration of fishers ranged from 41 (April) to 51 (September). The highest number of fishing hour was observed in August (64 hr), whereas the lowest was in March (49 hr). The average catch per fisher per day ranged from 107 kg/day (December) to 144 kg/day (August) during the study period. An average of 25 days was spent fishing in each month. The result also indicated similarities in the water qualities of all the three sampling sites per months. Based on the result gotten it was concluded that lake Kalgwa is not over fished and water quality are within recommended ranges for fish production.
