Abstract

The use of different protein sources in the diets of curimba (P. lineatus) fingerlings was evaluated for effects on performance and economic viability. Fingerlings, mean weight 10.47±2.11 g, total initial length 8.85±0.64 cm, were distributed in a completely randomized design with four treatments...
