Impact of Different Feeds on Growth of Catfish Clarias Batrachus (Gunther)

Shriparna Saxena [3]

Abstract: In the present experiment highest survival rate was noted when fishes were fed with Tubifex followed by Artemia, mixed zooplanton and freeze dried tubifex. The survival rates obtained in the present study are comparable with those reported earlier for the same species (Fermin and Bolivar, 1991). Mortalities could be associated with the onset of air breathing (observed at day 9 in the present study) in catfish larvae (Haylor, 1992) and, to a lesser extent, the cannibalistic nature of the fish as influenced by size differences (Hecht and Appelbaum, 1987).
