Abstract

Lipids are indispensable nutrients for growth and survival of shrimps and prawns (Kanazawa, 1985). However, information regarding quantitative lipid requirement of prawns is limited, though most researchers included lipid in th eir dietary formulations for prawns. Lipids derived from plant products, animal products and mixture of plant and animal products have been used in the diets of prawns according to their availability (Kanazawa, 1985). The level of lipid used in the diets also varied according to their convenience, without considering the dietary requirement of the animal concerned.
