Profitability of using different crude protein contents of the most commonly used commercial tilapia feed in Ghana for Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) fingerlings production


Author(s): FA Anani, EN Tornyeviadzi and BK Akpakli

Abstract: For profitability of commercial fish farming, it is important to use economically viable fish feed. The profitability of using a commercial tilapia feed of different crude protein (CP) contents (30.0, 33.0, 38.0 and 40.0%), designated A, B, C and D respectively to produce an average of 5.0 g Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus fingerlings was investigated. The declared CP contents were compared with analyzed figures. The study was carried out in hapa-in-pond system and it lasted 9 weeks. Analyzed CP contents were 30.6, 32.8, 36.5 and 38.1% for A, B, C and D respectively. Recorded final mean fingerling weights were 4.69 ± 1.92, 5.21 ± 2.11, 4.42 ± 1.94 and 5.47 ± 2.19 respectively, with B and D being significantly higher (Tukey’s HSDT, P<0.05). The 30.0% CP content feed was recommended for Nile tilapia fingerling production, as it recorded the highest profitability index and the least incidence cost.
