Abstract

Three Indian major carps (rohu Labeo rohita, mrigal Cirrhinus cirrhosus and catla Catla catla) are considered prime aquaculture species in Bangladesh. Three basic production systems are in use, viz. broodstock and fry production systems, nursery systems and grow-out systems. Successful production...

Abstract

Rapid appraisal methodology has been widely used in techno-socio-economic studies related to aquaculture and fisheries but very few have dealt with the low-input aquaculture system and none has addressed the issue of identifying locally available feed ingredients for low-input cage aquaculture. The ...

Abstract

Apparent protein digestibility (APD), apparent lipid digestibility (ALD) and true protein digestibility (TPD) coefficients of some plant and animal protein sources were estimated for fingerling rohu, mean weight 5.2-6.5 g. Plant protein ingredients were incorporated as the sole source of protein...

Abstract

Poultry feather meal (PFM) was prepared by hydrolysing feathers under pressure at 130°C for 2.5 h, drying at 60° and ground to pass through a 200-µm screen. L. rohita fry, mean weight 1.02 g, were stocked into 15 tanks at 30/tank and fed for 63 days on isonitrogenous (35% CP) diets in which fish...

Abstract

Samples of Chlorella and Scenedesmus were collected from different ponds in Dhaka. Single cells were isolated, purified and cultured in culture media. Conditions for mass cultivation of the algae were then studied and described. The resulting source of protein could be used as a protein source for...

Abstract

Diets containing commercial or laboratory grade fish meal, or dried fish silage were fed twice daily (5% of biomass offered in 2 portions daily) for 50 days to 180 Nile tilapia fry, mean weight 1.75-1.80 g, stocked into 6 tanks at 30/tank. The diet containing fish silage produced the best growth...
