Growth Performance And Intestinal Morphology Of African Catfish: A Comparison Of Diets

Progressive changes in fish larval gastrointestinal tract are similar in all teleosts and are important in defining proper larval feeding and weaning strategy. However, variations exist between species' developmental stage and are influenced by quality and quantity of feed fed to the fish. These variations affect the digestibility and absorption of nutrients in larval fish. Globally, the culture of Clarias gariepinus is growing both in quantity and value. However, its growth has not attained its full exploitation potential because of...
