Background The aquaculture sector is the biggest consumer of fishmeal and the demand of this ingredient is higher than the production. The replacement of fishmeal from aquafeed is a current research thrust. The replacement of fishmeal has been possible with plant ingredients in many fish species, however, possesses some limitations in terms of low...

The Indian butter catfish, Ompok bimaculatus (Bloch, 1794), is a high-value catfish that has gained immense consumer preference in South-East Asia. However, information on the nutritional requirements of this species is scanty. Hence, an experiment was conducted to evaluate the effects of varying dietary lipid levels on growth, body composition, an...

The Asian catfish, Clarias magur, is an endangered fish species, which is immensely important due to its high commercial value in India and other South‐East Asian countries. Various anthropogenic activities and natural habitat loss have greatly impacted the biodiversity of C. magur in natural water bodies, leading to the addition of this species to...

A 22 d experiment was carried out to study the protein requirement of Ompok bimaculatus larvae (weight 0.11±0.01 g; length 20.49±0.70 mm). Three different formulated feeds were prepared with graded levels of crude protein i.e., with low (35% CP; LP), medium (40% CP; MP) and high (45% CP; HP) crude protein levels. The water quality parameters were o...
