Agus Kurnia, Wellem H. Muskita, Oce Astuti, Adnan Hakim


Abstract: The utilization of telescopium mussel meal (TMM) as a substitute for fish meal (FM) was evaluated in black tiger shrimp (initial weight 0.01340.02) diets containing five levels of TMM (from 0 to 100 %). After 42 days, live weight averages were 0.37, 0.33, 0.29, 0.27 and 0.24 g for fish fed diet in which FM was substituted with 100, 75, 50, 0 and 25 % TMM, and feed conversion ratios were 3.20, 3.05, 4.01, 3.65 and 4.46, respectively. No differences were obtained in weight gain, FCR, FE and SR for all treatments. The shrimp fed diet E (100 % TMM) was highest in FE and followed by the shrimp fed diet D (75 % TMM), diet C (50 % TMM), diet B (25 % TMM) and diet A ( 0 % TMM), respectively. SR was highest in the shrimp fed diet A and the lowest was found in the shrimp fed diet D. This study concluded that TTM could replace FM up to 100 % in the diet without compromising growth and feed efficiency of black tiger shrimp larvae.
