Abstract:

A review of topography in fish culture in Nigeria part two is aimed at bridging the technical language gap between the fish culturist and; both land surveyors and civil engineers. The fish culturists need to understand the principles in topography for good site selection in fish culture. The fish farmer can design and build fishponds, reservoirs and small dams and use existing topographical maps. An adequate knowledge of topography by fish culturist bridges the technical language gap between the fish culturist and; both land surveyors and civil engineers. The fish culturist can discuss his plans, projects and understand books on topography, engineering and surveying. Good fish farm construction can only be possible with the right topography. Features of a fish pond, different kinds of pond, advantages and disadvantages of these types of pond, basic pond types, characteristics of shallow and deep ponds, setting out a straight line between two points, prolonging a line, horizontal distance measurement, pace count, chaining, clisimeter, stadia method are some principles in topography for good site selection in fish culture reviewed in this part aimed at enabling the fish culturists know these basic principles to design and build fishponds, reservoirs and small dams and use existing topographical maps.
