Linear programming technique in fish feed formulation

Jacob, T and Paulraj, R (1987) Linear programming technique in fish feed formulation. In: Summer Institute in Recent Advances in Finfish and Shellfish Nutrition, 11 - 30 May 1987, Kochi.



Nutrition plays a vital role in improving animal productivity. Good deal of work has been done in India on nutritional requirements of livestock and poultry. But studies on fish nutrition especially on the marine species are comparatively of recent origin. The Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute has been undertaking experimental work to estimate the digestibility coefficients of different feed stuffs and the nutritional requirements of selected fin and shell fishes. Experiments are also conducted to test the efficiency of different feed mixtures and to study their economics. In this paper a versatile tool called 'linear programming technique' has been discussed in relation to fish feed formulation.
