Thomas, M M and Easterson, D C V and Kathirvel, M (1984) Energy conversion in the prawn Metapenaeus dobsoni (Miers) fed on artificial feed. Indian Journal of Fisheries, 31 (2). pp. 309-312.
Measured quantities of feed containing 33.33% by weight of tapioca powder, 16.67% of rice bran, 41.67% of fishmeal and 8.33% of mineral supplements (Starmin PS), made into pellets, using agar-agar as binding agent, were fed to Metapenaeiis dobsoni. Mean gross and net conversion (growth) efficiencies, Ki and : 2. were; 39.62% and 49.34%. Average assimilation efHciency was of the order 80.99%.
