Abstract

This study was conducted to evaluate the suitability of the African Yam bean (S. stenocarpa) as a partial replacement for dietary full fat soyabeans for feeding O. niloticus fingerlings. Five diets were formulated to contain 15, 30, 45 and 60% of the total protein using toasted S. stenocarpa, while ...
