Effects of substituting fish meal with grasshopper meal on growth and food utilization of the Nile Tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus fingerlings.
In: 19th Annual Conference of the Fisheries Society of Nigeria (FISON)
, 29 Nov - 03 Dec 2004
, Ilorin, Nigeria.
The effects of substituting fish meal with grasshopper meal in fish diets on the growth, food utilization and survival of the Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus (mean weight = 40.1g) were investigated. The results show that the best growth and food utilization were recorded in the fingerlings fed in the 10% grasshopper meal and 30% fish meal while the poorest growth and food utilization indexes were recorded with the 25% grasshopper meal and 15% fish meal. In general, at 10% inclusion, the fingerlings performed even better than the control (40% fishmeal and no grasshopper meal)
