Biochemical Alteration and Growth Response of Catla Catla Fed with Plant Mixture Fish Meal

S. A. Manjare [6]


Abstract: This study was designed to determine the maximum replacing levels of Fish Meal (FM) by a Plant Protein Mixture (PPM) in six diets for Catla catla. The PPM consisted of plant powders of Asparagus, Gliricidia and Eichhornia, Guar gum Binder, Mineral Vitamin mixture, Groundnut oil cake, Rice Bran and fishmeal. FM in the basal diet was replaced by PPM in the diets at replacing levels of 20, 30, 40, 50, 60 and 70 %. After 120 days of feeding, the highest growth performance was recorded in the 50 % diet group as compared to all other diet groups. The protein content was also high in 50 % diet group. The finding of present study showed the effective utilization of PPM in fish diets. The inclusion of PPM in fish diet increases feed acceptance by fish which directly promotes fish growth and carcass protein content.
