Wet-Season Variation in Some Water Quality Parameters of Buguma Brackish Fish Farm, Rivers State, Nigeria
Nigerian Institute for Oceanography and Marine Research, African Regional Aquaculture Centre, Nigeria
Water Quality parameters such as pH; ammonia; nitrite; nitrate; alkalinity; CO2 ; salinity; Dissolved Oxygen (D.O) and temperature were monitored bimonthly from April to October in 2021; which is the wet season of the region. The results showed that pH was 6.5-7; ammonia 0.0-1.5ppm; nitrite 0.05; nitrate 0.05-0.25ppm; alkalinity 36-85ppm; CO2 5-15ppm; salinity 7-20ppt; D.O 3.3-5.6ppm and temperature 26-30o C.
