CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

  • BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

According to Mader, (2001), fishes are aquatic, gill-breathing vertebrates that usually have fins and skin covered with scales.

Also, Taylor, Green and Stout, (2002), defined fish as a variety cold-blooded vertebrate animal that lives in fresh and salt water, they breathe through the gills and use fins and tail for swimming. Continue reading Micro Organisms Associated With The Palms Of Fish Handlers

ABSTRACT

Studies on the micro organisms associated with the palms of fish handlers in Oko, Orumba North Local government Area of Anambra state was carried out. Five (5) samples were collected by swabbing the palms of five (5) different fish handlers and swabs placed in sterile containers of distilled water and cultured Continue reading MICRO ORGANISMS ASSOCIATED WITH THE PALMS OF FISH HANDLERS
