    Marine fish nutrition is unique in the sense that their nutritional requirements are highest grossly compared to any livestock. Ruminants have a protein requirement of approximately 15% in the compounded cattle feed and poultry feed varies from 20- 22%. For pigs it varies from 24-26%. The same in aquatic animals varies from 25 – 40%. Marine fish is known to require not only high protein in their feeds but also fat to the tune of 10% in the tropics. Since shrimp and quality marine fish fetches high price in the market, with such costly inputs these enterprises are proven to be viable financially.
