Preliminary investigation on growth responses of Cyprinus carpio L. fed on locally formulated artificial diets.
In: 2nd Annual Conference of the Fisheries Society of Nigeria (FISON)
, 25-27 January, 1982
, Calabar, Nigeria.
The growth rate and feed conversion ratios of the common carp, Cyprinus carpio were measured for five test diets in 14-day replicate laboratory studies. The young carp were fed with artificial test diets with crude protein contents ranging from 14.50 to 21.42 per cent. Within this range of feed characteristic optimum growth rates were obtained with diets containing 20.25 and 21.42 per cent crude protein. The study of the effect of varying ration levels showed that growth rates increased with increases of ration size, but the food conversion efficiency and protein efficiency ratios decreased markedly as ration size was increased
