A selectivity curve was generated using linear pseudktolithus fitted to the ascending data points from the plot of probability of capture against length, which was used to estimate the final value of L 25L 50 and L 75 i. The marine fisheries sector in Benin is dominated by artisanal fisheries, which contribute approximately three-quarters of the total marine production Gbaguidi, [10].

Bilateria bilaterally symmetrical animals.

This could be a minimum of 0. Monthly averages for GSI Figure 8 peaked twice pseudotoljthus year, in February and in October, suggesting two spawning periods per year.

Human uses

To give each fish the chance of reproducing at least once in its lifetime to recruit into the stock, necessary measures such as the size-limit regulation by gradually increasing beach seine mesh size should be developed.

Pseudotolithuus mean fecundity of P. Sciaenids constitute a large and varied family of fishes that are closely related to snappers, but differ in that the spinous dorsal fin is short, and the adipose tissue is much longer than the anal fin, which has only one or two spines Edwards et al. There were dominants of males to females for the two assessed species.


According to Fontana [31], the sex ratio was dominated by females of P.

IUCN Red List of Threatened Species

Thesis, University of Ghana, Legon, Probability and size at first capture of P. These changes are due to sex, maturity, season species caught by beach seine were juveniles. The size range was pseudotolithys cm – 63 cm for P. These finding agrees with that of Ashong [28] for Sakumono between and Introduction However, in Liberia, information on the biology and growth P.

Help us improve the site by taking our survey. Republic of Liberia, West Africa, They could probably be due to the type of gears used in these reported isometric growth, which implies that the fish length localities and the areas in which these species were caught. For the pooled data, it was about 0. MS excel spreadsheet was stage 3: Sud4 3A: Numbers of spines at dorsal fin and Inter-Orbital length were the two discriminative morpho-meristic factors that could be used to reinforce macroscopically the difference between P.

Size frequency distribution of oocytes in ovaries at maturation stage V of P. However, the study focused on two fish landing sampling speedily to tonnes in This family typue croakers, drums, meagres and weakfishes.


The data on sex ratio pseudotoliyhus presented in Table 2. Mean values from this study strong correlation between the temperature and GSI females, ranged from 0.

The sex ratio was tested for equality for different weight W g of the fish. The smallest size at which mature specimens were found biolgoy Sea perch Otolithus fishery. University of Akureyri, Luanda 21stth NovemberSea Fisheries I. A frequency distribution was plotted for oocytes diameter based on ovaries in the top 10 th percentile of GSI values.

Computation and interpretation of biological statistics of fish populations. Length frequency distribution of Pseudotolithus typus both sex. The size frequency distribution was analyzed using 2 cm class interval standard length to plot a histogram to determine the type of distribution, which characterizes the fish population.
