EVALUATION OF DIFFERENT CONCENTRATION OF SOYBEAN MEAL DIET ON GROWTH PERFORMANCE OF MAJOR CARP Catla catla
UTTAR PRADESH JOURNAL OF ZOOLOGY,
An experiment was conducted to determine the growth performance of Indian Major Carp Catla catla, fingerlings for period of 60 days. In the present study to investigate the effects of soy bean on growth performance and survival in common carp (Catla catla). Soybean was incorporated into diets at concentrations of 1%, 2%, or 3%. The control diet contained no supplement. Soybean at 3% produced the best and statistically significant (p<0.05) weight gain. In general, Soybean produced better growth than 1% and 2% supplementation. The present investigation shows that incorporation of soybean in diets for common carp results in increased growth rate. Soybean diet was most effective in stimulating fish growth.
