Growth performance of European seabass (Dicentrarchus labrax) fed with yeast feed in earthen ponds and its effect on feed cost


Author(s): Aysun Kop

Abstract: In this study, 450 European seabass (mean weight 25.63 ± 6.95 g and mean length 13.36 ± 1.30 cm) were stocked in six 20 x 25 m. sized earthen ponds. The fish were divided into two groups, as a Fish meal (FM; fishmeal 40%) and an experimental group (Yeast; fishmeal 30% + yeast 10%). At the end of the experiment, there was no significant variation in the growth of fish fed with yeast diets and control diets (P>0.05). In the study, cost calculations were made for both feed ingredient (fishmeal, yeast) and trial feeds. Costs were calculated by the price per kg of dry matter, metabolic energy and protein value of feed ingredients. There was no difference in the Crude Protein / kg cost of the two trial diets, while the cost of the yeast diet was 0.060 c / per kg cheaper than the yeast-free diet.
