Abstract

Experiments were conducted to ascertain the nutritive value of natural lipid sources for juveniles of P. indicu.~, Sixlccn isonitrogenous and isocaloric diets were prepared using twelve naturally available oils, either individually or in combinl1tion" The diets containing marine animal lipid sources produced significantly better grwoth. FeR, PER and protein rctcn(iull in prawns than the diets containing only plant oils. Among the individual marine animal lipids, prawn head oil appeared to be a suitable lipid source. The diets containing a mixture of plant and animal lipids produced superior growth 'than individual plant or animal lipids (except prawn head oil), Among the rruxtures of lipid sources, a combination of cod liver oil, soybean oil and lecithia proved to be superior.
