Successful and sustainable aquaculture of finfish and crustaceans depends upon the provision of nutritionally adequate, environmental friendly and economically viable artificial feeds. Feeding increases the productivity of aquaculture farms and constitutes the highest single cost item of running expenditure. In view of this, it is imperative that artificial feeds besides being scientifically formulated and optimally processed, should be judiciously supplied considering the specific nutritional needs of the cultivated species and the intensity of the culture operations. In order to achieve maximum growth and best feed efficiency of a given feed from a culture system, the feeding strategies employed viz. feeding rate, frequency and methods of feeding are of primary importance.
