Studies on nutrition of carp-fry. I. Effect of variations in protein content of diet upon growth and mortality of carp-fry



Studies on nutrition of carp-fry. I. Effect of variations in protein content of diet upon growth and mortality of carp-fry



Jour Shimonoseki Coll Fish 6(1): 101-108



Culture of carp-fry was studied for 4.5 months determine the effect of the protein in the diet on growth and mortality. Favorable content of dietary protein was 25-50%, 40-45% being optimal for carp-fry under 3 months and 25-30% for those above 3 months of age. Fry fed on 25-50% protein grew nearly the same, with feed-coefficient 2-3. High mortality and low growth rate were found when the diet contained more than 45 or less than 20% of protein. Raw beef liver (10% dry weight) was beneficial when added to the diet having 40-50% protein especially in younger fry.
