Survival and Growth Rate of Clarias gariepinus Larvae Fed with Artemia salina and Inert Diet.

This project work was basically conducted to provide fish farmers a preferable diet for Catfish fry.. Several diets were used while the fish growth rate amongst other parameters were observed 

Abstract 

The growth and survival of Clarias gariepinus larvae (0.42mg) fed Artemia salina (D1), inert diet (egg white + fish meal) (D2) and a combination of both diets (D3) was investigated for 42 days. Each diet was feed to 80 post yolk-sac fry,  in  triplicate  plastic  tanks  holding  40L  of  water.  The specific growth rate, survival, percentage weight gain, mean weight gain and performance index were investigated. The percentage  weight  gain  and  specific  growth  rate  were  not significantly different (P>0.05) for the various diets, while the final  mean  weight,  survival  and  performance  index  of  the larvae fed D1, D2 and D3 were significantly different (P
