Kuwait's economy has drastically changed from one that depends on marine operations to one dominated by oil since the early 1950s. Kuwait is currently dependent on oil incomes, and the conventional marine enterprises have reduced tremendously Excessive fishing levels contribute to declining catches in Kuwait bays. Overfishing is attributed to the declining yields, particularly with the protection of juvenile nurse areas and the implementation of high length limits. The present study assesses various fish stocks and discusses the effect of overfishing on Kuwait bays. The results indicate that overfishing causes a decline in fish stocks and affects fish recruitment patterns. The study's findings provide instrumental insights and a practical starting point for a comprehensive investigation that attempts to combine data on the changing fishing patterns in Kuwait bays. The study is essential for fishery management in identifying whether a decrease in fishing activities would be significant.

Tra Duoc Mountain in Binh Tri Commune, Kien Luong District, Kien Giang Province, Vietnam, is classified in the Nha Trang Formation (Knt), with the main composition including rhyolite, trachy-rhyolite and their tuff, more than 100 m thick. The research results have determined the geological characteristics of the rock; The silicate chemical analysis showed that the rock belongs to the acid eruption group with the content of Na2O > K2O. The quality of stone meets the requirements of the standard stone used as a common building material.

Keywords - rock, geological features, building materials

The choice Master's degree students have to make regarding elective subject selection in a chosen specialization is really decisive. A wrong decision may affect their personal and academic goals and may impact negatively on their future professional direction. Making bad choices on the elective subjects to offer at this stage may lead to loss of interest by the student, which can result to dropping out of the higher degree programme. It is therefore important that students are given support so as to make the right choices regarding elective courses in a chosen specialization, using decision support systems. There are records of successful use of recommender systems to suggest items to users in several domains, like education, e-commerce, entertainment domains, and the like. In this work, 5 supervised...........

Paper Title :: Multiphase origin of polymetallic Zn-Pb-Cu (Au-Ag-Fe-V) ore deposits in the Bamba-Kilenda, in the foreland of the West Congo Belt (WCB), Kongo Central (Democratic Republic of Congo)

The Bamba-Kilenda deposit, once exploited, will come to a standstill shortly before the independence events of 1958. However, archival data present usable economic reserves. Recent scientific studies on this deposit and other deposits raise many questions about the genesis of these minerals. Our field observations enriched by those of our predecessors, given the time allotted for our stay in Bamba-Kilenda, allowed us to present the staging of the vein deposits observed in the survey FK2 /4, which corroborates a multiphase emplacement of the deposit of Bamba-Kilenda.....
