Abstract

During the past two decades, there has been tremendous development in aquaculture. As aquafarming continues to expand worldwide, production methods have shifted from traditional extensive to modified extensive, semi-intensive and intensive systems utilizing modern facilities, equipments and management practices aimed at producing higher yields per unit area. Natural food constitutes an important source of nutrients for extensive and improved extensive culture systems, whereas artificial feeds are required for semi-intensive and intensive practices. In fish and crustacean aquaculture the feed conversion ratio (FCR) falls in between 0.5 and 2.0 and hence feed represents the major expense, often accounting for more than 50% of total operating cost.
