Vijayakumaran, M (1987) Digestibility of feeds in fish and shellfish and methods to determine digestibility. In: Summer Institute in Recent Advances in Finfish and Shellfish Nutrition, 11 - 30 May 1987, Kochi.
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.
