Effect of partial replacement of fish meal with duck weed (Lemna Minor), and soybean meal on the growth performance of Ctenopharyngodon Idella (grass carp)


Author(s): G Mathew Srirangam

Abstract: The acceptable nutritional value of Lemna Minor & soybean meal as an ingredients in diets for Ctenopharyngodon Idella (Val.) Fingerlings was experimented under aquarium culture system for 120 days. Six formulated experimental diets were prepared to contain 0%, 20% 40%, 60% 80% and 100% of gradient duck weed meal (diet DSM 0, DSM 20, DSM 40, DSM 60 DSM80 and DSM 100, respectively). Significant differences (P<0.05) in weight gain, specific growth rate, total feed intake, feed conversion ratio, and protein efficiency ratio were found among the feeding treatments, except for final survival rate. These results suggest that duckweed diet appears to be more adequate for a better growth of this fish.
