    Abstract

    Feeding rates, feeding frequency and time of feeding are all important factors to be considered in feeding of the fish. As a general rule of the thumb most of the vertebrates including fish consume 2.5 to 3.0% of the body weight in dry matter. Feeding rates and frequencies are related to fish growth. Small larval fish and fry need to be fed a high protein diet frequently and usually in excess. When fishes grow bigger, feeding rates and frequencies should be lowered. Feeding fish is a labour intensive activity and feeding frequency has to be programmed in such a way that it is economically viable.
