Abstract:
Background and Objective: Proximate composition of most of the fish feed ingredients available in Bangladesh are unknown to fish feed producers and farmers. That prohibit them to utilize these ingredients in the formulation of low cost fish feed for aquaculture. The objective of the present study was to determine the proximate composition of fish feed ingredients from a wide range of area of Bangladesh. Materials and Methods: A total of 163 samples of 19 different available feed ingredients were collected and analyzed for proximate composition viz. moisture, crude protein, total ash, crude fiber, crude fat and nitrogen free extract (NFE) followed by standard methods. Results: Among the plant origin ingredients, the highest value of crude protein was found in soybean oil cake and thus it can easily replace fish meal and meat and bone meal to produce quality fish feed. Among the animal origin feed ingredients, higher crude protein content was found in protein concentrate and lower in dry trash fish. Crude fat content of plant origin feed ingredients ranged between 0.99±1.31 (rapeseed oil cake) to 18.93±1.07% (soybean full fat) and in animal origin feed ingredients the fat content ranged between 4.08±1.86 (meat and bone meal) and 10.33±2.02% (dry trash fish). Most of the samples of mustard oil cake (88.89%), soybean oil cake (55.56%) and wheat bran and rice bran (B-grade) (100%) were found in lower standard. Conclusion: Knowledge of proximate composition of feed ingredients acquainted in the present study will help to produce low cost quality fish feed from locally available feed ingredients.
