Abstract

Only a few publications are available concerning food utilization in herbivorous fishes (see PANDIAN, 1975). MENZEL (1959) found that angelfish Holacanthus bermudi? nsis, fed on epizoan-free filamentous algae, failed to deposit protein ; he concluded that, though the utilized algae were sufficient to meet the metabolic energy requirements, the animal matter ingested intentionally or accidentally by the angelfish was essential to insure "true growth" (GERKING, 1952).
