Abstract

The impact of particle size of ingredients in a research diet and a practical feed in the water stability of pellets. Their digestibility, growth, and food conversion ratio in the prawn Penaeus ;ndicus were investigated. The research diet consisted of casein, code liver oil, sucrose, starch, cellulose and other additives while the practical feed was made up of prawn waste mantis shrimp (Squilla), fish meal, groundnut oil cake and tapioca. Casein in the research diet and prawn waste, mantis shrimp, and groundnut oil cake in the practical feed were prepared into panicles of 500, 420,300,250,2 10, 100, and 50 gm and dry pellets were prepared with ingredients in each size.
