Effect of nourishment and inorganic fertilization on growth of snakehead fish, «Parachanna insignis (Channidae)» in non-drained pond
The influence of combination of feed based on rice bran and inorganic fertilizer (NPK-17-17-17) was tested in a three months studt on growth performances of snakehead fish in non-drained pond. Daily growth obtained with this mixed feed of rice bran combined with inorganic fertilization profited well to snakehead fish with growth of 1.463 g/day against 0.765 g/day for the control. This type of feed could be proposed to increase the production of fish farming in the trial area.
