Netti Aryani, Efawani and Nur AsiahAbstract:
The aim the research is to increase the reproductive potential of L. festivus female that is time matured gonads, somatic ovi index, fecundity, egg diameter, hatching rate and time to hatching in the control group (feed without enrichment of vitamin E) and exposed to 150 mg/kg, 300 mg/kg, 450 mg/kg feed of vitamin E. Treatment of vitamin E levels were significant (p<0.05) different with respect to time ripe gonads, ovi somatic index, fecundity and egg diameter. Females exposed to 300 µg/kg feed of vitamin E can increased time matured gonads 67 days, somatic ovi index 14.95%, absolute fecundity 13547 eggs/spaw, relative fecundity 98 eggs/g gonado weight and egg diameter 1.16 mm. But hatching rate and time to hatching did not different between the treatments (p>0.05).Pages: 126-129 | 787 Views 10 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
