Apparent Digestibility Coefficients for Common Major Feed Ingredients In Formulated Feed Diets For Tropical Sport Fish, Tor tambroides Fry.

Jalal K. C. A , Ambak M. A , Saad C. R , Hasan A. and Abol-Munafi A. B

Abstract:
Apparent digestion coefficient of dry matter in the feedstuffs used were above 70 per cent and there was no significant differences among themselves. The digestion coefficients of protein in the soybean meal were 95.63 per cent followed by fish meal 95.13 per cent, and wheat meal 84.70 per cent. The protein and fat digestion coefficients of fish meal and soybean meal didn`t show any significant difference among (P>0.05) themselves. While fish meal fat digestion coefficient was significantly higher (P<0.05) than that of wheat meal. Fish meal and wheat meal showed significantly higher ash digestion coefficients (P>0.05) compared to soybean meal. Carbohydrates in fish meal and soybean meal were poorly digested by T. tambroides fry. While wheat meal was well digested and significantly higher (P<0.05) than those of the fish meal and soybean meal feedstuff. Fish meal and wheat meal showed significantly higher energy digestion coefficients (P<0.05) than that of soybean meal. As most of the feedstuffs were well digested, ingredient selection should, therefore, be based primarily on their protein content, amino acid composition and palatability.

Dear Sirs,

Could you kindly assist and share with me the bleeding and general information on the empurau/tambroides fish.

I'm interested to invest in the bleeding of the said fish in man made cement pond with the following size: 20ftx4ftx4ft with water pumps and filtering system.Kindly advise.

Thank you,
