Abstract

The effects of dietary protein levels on growth performance and body composition of jade perch S. barcoo were investigated by using white fish meal as a protein source in pelleted feeds. 105 jade perch with average initial body weight of 104.13±0.46 g were used in an 8-week growth trial. All the...

Abstract

The single factor random block design was used to evaluate the effects of phytase-pretreated diets on growth and phosphorus utilization of channel catfish (Ictalurus punctatus). Four hundred and fifty channel catfish with the initial body weight of (1.74±0.02) g were divided into 5 groups with 3...

Abstract

The optimum dietary protein requirement of a Thai strain of climbing perch (Anabas testudineus, Bloch, 1792) fry was investigated by feeding six semi-purified diets containing varying levels of dietary protein within a range of 25-50% over an 8 week feeding period. Fish meal was used as protein...
