AbstractFull Text

A 16-week feeding trial was conducted to observe the growth performance of red hybrid tilapia (Oreochromis sp.) fed two levels (10% and 15%) of feather meal, which replaced 92% and 100% of fishmeal in the diets. Also, the water quality parameters in the recirculating water system were determined...

AbstractFull Text

Sewage water, treated or untreated, municipal or otherwise, contains potential nutritional resources. Chemically it is difficult as well as uneconomical to extract them. These can be eaten by fish directly or through food chains, and thus can be converted to animal protein naturally. Pisciculture...
