Abstract

Digestibility of a feedstuff can be described as the amount of feed that can be digested and absorbed by the animal in relation to consumption. Digestibility is measured as digestibility coefficient when it is expressed as percentage and as digestible energy which is most often used in warm water fishes. Knowledge of nutrient availability is necessory for effective substitution of ingredients for formulating low cost diets.
