Effect of ration size and feeding frequency on the growth and food conversion of juvenile penaeus merguiensis


Effect of ration size and feeding frequency on the growth and food conversion of juvenile penaeus merguiensis



Aquaculture 16(4): 279-298

When juvenile P. merguiensis were fed 4 times daily they increased in weight more rapidly and utilized their food more efficiently than when fed once per day. The maximum ratio for prawns given a commercial dry pellet was approximately 12.0% of the wet body weight per day and changed very little as the prawns grew from 0.5-1.3 g in indoor culture. Food conversion efficiency declined with increasing weight and ration size but the relative loss in efficiency was least when rations were maintanined near to the maximum. Evidence is presented for the existence of a negative [gross growth efficiency] relationship in P. merguiensis.
