A.M. Orire, S.O.E. Sadiku and L.O. Tiamiyu

Abstract:
This experiment was conducted to evaluate the suitability of yam starch as a local alternative binding agent in aquatic feed, which is effective and nutritive. The binding property of yam starch in feed pellet, increased significantly with the levels of inclusion in fish feed production. Five percent (5%), inclusion level was found to be appropriate in producing desirable water stable pellet that is also firm to handling during transportation and storage.
