The Effect of Protein and Carbohydrate Diets On The Body Composition of Heterobranchus Logifilis Fingerlings
S. O. Ovie, S. I Ovie
KEYWORDS: Protein, Carbohydrate, body composition, Heterobranchus longifilis
ABSTRACT:There was no significant difference (P>0.05) in the nutrient composition of the fish fed various diets in the two experiments. The lower levels of protein (10 to 24%) and higher levels of carbohydrates (58 to 76%) in the diets presented to H. longifilis fingerlings resulted in the fish not growing beyond the size at stocking that is maintenance level. The body composition of fish fed various diets showed lower levels of nutrient than the nutrients supplied through the diets. There was no specific trend of the influence of the protein and lipid content of the diet on the body composition. The body protein did not increase with dietary protein Higher carbohydrate levels in the diets at levels of 58 to 76% did not contribute positively to the growth of the fish.
