Abstract

The olive ridley Lepidochelys olivacea hatchlings were offered 4 different types of food viz, white prawn, tilapia, green mussel and jellyfish. The feeding nte of the hatchlings ranged from 174.7 J/g/day in the group receiving jellyfish to 525.2 J/g/day in the group receiving green mussel. The rate and efficiency of conversion were maximum in the group receiving combination of all the 4 types of food (K2 = 24.78). The minimum maintenance, maintenance and optimum feeding ntes of the hatchlings were 175. 225 and 450 J/g/ day, respectively. The optimum feeding rate (450 J/g/day). was about 85% of the maximum feeding mte (525.2 J/g/day).
