Vijayakumaran, M (1979) Food intake and conversion in Ambassis gymnocephalus. Journal of the Marine Biological Association of India, 21 (1 & 2). pp. 191-193.
Transformation of food has been studied in the euryhaline fish Ambassis gymnocephalus (Lacepede) by using energy transfer criteria. Duration of the experiments varied from 15-21 days. Flesh of the prawn Metapenaeiis dobsoni was used as food. The absorption efficiencies are more than 96 % and conversion efficiencies vary between 20.57 and 27.73% in different weight groups of fish. The conversion efficiency of A. gymnocephalus was found to be lower than that of young ones of similar size of fishes, that growto larger size.
