    Abstract

    The apparent digestibility (Da) of five diets, incorporated with mantis shrimp at levels of to, 15, 20, 25 and 30% was determined for Penaeus indicus postlarvae (initial weight ranging from 0.087-0.106 g). Oa for crude protein ranged from 61.97 to 92.76% showing a significant increase with increase in the level of mantis shrimp upto 25% in the diet and was higher than the control value of 66.09 (P > 0.05). Crude fat digestibility ranged from 52.26 to 89.57% also showing an increase upto 25% incorporation of mantis shrimp.
