Topic: Fish Pathology
Description: The effects of different plants extracts on the histological and haematological profile of fish, which could be used as an alternative to the use of antibiotics. Also how bacterial organisms are having direct and indirect effects on productivity of fish.

Isolation and identification of bacteria found in the milt and eggs of catfish clarias gariepinus
Introduction: Bacteria are found everywhere in water, soil and air.However, the presence of bacteria in the eggs and milt of catfish has put scientist to wonder how it got there. Is it from the environment and what are the possibilities that the presence of these organisms can cause harm to the fish and the quality of eggs and milt being produced.
Aim: The aim of the research is to carry out bacteriological test on the milt and eggs of catfish and identification up to molecular level, at ascertaining the actual organisms found in them.
Materials and Methods: Sub adult catfish were purchased from the fishmongers from those found in the wild and those that are reared. five catfish each were used, eggs and milt were collected for microbiological examination at the laboratory and subsequent DNA extraction of bacteria, followed by sequencing and the use of basic Local Alignment Search Tools at the (NCBI) National Centre for Biological Information data base and the percentage similarity gotten after mining the nucleotide on the website page.
Expected results: The end product of the mined nucleotide would reveal the actual organisms found in the eggs and milt of catfish and the subsequent effects it would have on hatchability and quality of the eggs and milt.
