Aim: To assess the optimum protein and lipid requirement of Anabas testudineus at its fry stage, based on the growth performance, feed efficiency and nutrient gain efficiency. Methodology: Eight experimental diets were prepared with four protein (35, 40, 45 and 50 %) and two lipid (9 and 13%) levels. The diets were designated as D1 (35 P/9L), D2 (3...

Nine semi-purified diets with three different levels of protein (350, 400, and 450 g/kg diet) and lipid (80, 120 and 160 g/kg diet) were fed ad libitum to Mystus gulio fry (0.16 g) in triplicate groups (20 fish/replicate) for 90 days. Flow-through fiber-reinforced tanks (50 L; water flow rate of 0.5 L/min) were used for rearing the fish. Result of...

Background: Seed stunting is a process of suppressing the normal growth of fish by manipulating various factors affecting the growth process. The present study aimed at evaluating the influence of varied photoperiod and stocking density on the growth and survival of catla (Catla catla) during the stunting process. Methods: Five treatments including...

Study was conducted for 90 days to know the effect of varying water alkalinity in production of stunted fingerlings of Catla catla in outdoor FRP tanks (1000 litre). Tanks filled up to 800 litre marks were grouped into three triplicated treatments and were stocked with catla seed (3.9g, 67±0.27mm) at 16 nos per tank (20 m-3). Three alkalinity level...

A 35 days experiment was conducted to study the effect of different feeding frequencies on growth and feed utilisation in climbing perch Anabas testudineus (Bloch 1792) fry. Four different feeding frequencies in triplicate viz., 2 (T1), 3 (T2), 4 (T3) and 5 (T4) times a day were evaluated. Fry (144 nos.) of climbing perch were randomly distributed...

A 30-day study was undertaken to examine the protein-sparing effect of carbohydrate in diets for silver barb, Puntius gonionotus fry. Six semi-purified experimental diets were formulated with two levels of protein (200 and 250 g kg)1 diet) and three levels of carbohydrate (300, 340 and 380 g kg)1 diet). In addition to the six experimental diets, a...

Nine semi-purified diets containing three levels of protein (300, 350, 400 g/kg) and three levels of lipid (60, 80, 100 g/kg) were fed ad libitum to juvenile freshwater angelfish Pterophyllum scalare (1.64±0.01 g) to determine the optimum dietary protein and lipid levels. Fish were stocked in 27 flow-through fiber-reinforced plastic tanks with 100...
