Nutrition & Feeding of Fishes

M R Raghunath (Author)

Aquaculture is now recognized as a viable and profitable enterprise worldwide. As aquaculture technology has evolved the push towards higher yields and faster growth has involved the enhancement or replacement of natural foods with prepared diets. In many aquaculture operations today, feed accounts for more than one half the variable operating cost. Therefore knowledge of nutrition and practical feeding of fish is essential to successful aquaculture.

This book is not written exclusively for experts but also for students, practicing nutritionists and aquaculturists. It covers the known nutrient requirements and deficiency effects for different fishes and digestion and metabolism of nutrients and energy. It discusses nutrient sources and preparation of practical and research feeds. It gives directions for conducting fish nutrition and feeding experiments. Feeding practices for Salmonids channel catfish tilapias shrimps and hybrid striped bass are presented.

Nonetheless the material presented has been thoughtfully selected and updated to make it of maximum use to persons whose interests range from general aquaculture to animal nutrition to feed manufacture.
