Utilization of Telescopium Mussel Meal as an Alternative Protein Source in the Diet of Black Tiger Shrimp, PENAEUS MONODON

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

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.
