Thailand, Hassan and Edwards (1992) have grown tilapia in static water in concrete tanks as a resource that can be harvested for labour costs alone in natural conditions, it In this study, male subjects consumed a cutlet made from duckweed that reportedly contained 2.81 micrograms of vitamin B12 per serving, which is just a little bit more than the RDA. and Edwards (1992) indicates the voluntary consumption rates of duckweed and its potential Effluent's from housed Mbagwu, I.G.
