Effect of live and artificial feed on growth and survival of Clarias batrachus fry


Author(s): Manju Rani, Surender Kumar, RK Gupta and NK Yadava

Abstract: The present study was designed to investigate the effect of live feed (plankton) and supplementary feed (soybean based) on the growth and survival of Clarias batrachus fry. A mass culture of planktons was maintained and used as live feed while the supplementary diet was fed at 5% body weight of fry. Results indicated significantly (p< 0.05) higher growth rate and gain in body weight in fry treated with plankton diet. The results are discussed in the light of available literature and it could be suggested that live feed can be effectively used for mass production of Clarias fry.
