Feeding Frequency on Growth and Feed Conversion of Clarias Gariepinus (Burchell, 1822) Fingerlings


Author(s): Jamabo NA, Fubara RI, Dienye HE

Abstract: Effect of feeding levels on growth performance, feed conversion ratio of Clarias gariepinus fingerlings was investigated using a complete random design. Triplicate group of 12 fish with average initial mean weight of 4.12g and average length of 3.50cm. A commercial feed (Coppens®, Holland) with crude protein of 42% was fed for 8 weeks over four feeding frequencies (1, 2, 3, and 4 times daily). The mean weight gain for the treatments T1(180.35±29.07g, T2(175.51±27.65g, T3(193.82 ±23.29g and T4(210.02±15.46g). Mean weight gain, specific growth rate and performance index were all significantly different (P < 0.05). The highest feed consumption was observed in the fish fed 4times daily and d feed conversion ratio recorded the lowest in 2 time feeding daily The results of this experiment indicate that fish could be fed 4times daily with maximum growth.
