The Efficacy of Molluscan Flesh in the Production of Prawn in Bangladesh

Md. Beniaz Zaman and Md. Sarwar Jahan

Abstract:
Experiments were conducted to evaluate the dietary effects of molluscan flesh (Pila globosa, Bellamya bengalensis and Lamellidens marginalis) fresh, boiled and endogenous products, pellets (40% rice bran, 30% wheat bran, 20% mustard oil cake and 10% prawn head powder) on growth, survival and production rate of Penaeus monodon under traditional upgraded extensive method. The maximum survival rate, individual increment in length and weight, production rate and profit were 80.4%, 1.71 mm and 0.57 gm day-1, 989.88 kg ha-1 and 115.58%, respectively from the culture supplemented with fresh molluscan flesh and pellet food in equal proportions. Fresh molluscan flesh with pellets in equal proportions was the most effective feed followed by fresh molluscan flesh.
