AbstractThe present study was conducted to determine the possibility of replacing the commercial fish meal (FM) with the locally produced fish by-product meal (FBPM) in the diets for red tilapia (phenotypically Oreochromis niloticus) fry (body weigh ~0.54 g).) Five isoproteic and isolipidic experimental diets with 0,25,50,75, and 100% inclusion levels of FBPM were formulated and hand-fed to triplicate groups of fish (20 fish /group) twice a day.After 6 weeks,fish fed FBPM were formulated and hand-fed to triplicate groups of fish (20 fish/group) twice a day. After 6 weeks,fish fed FBPM 50 attained the highest final body weight (4.7+-0.3 g;mean+-SD),weight again (764.8+-47.2%),specific growth rate (5.1+-0.1%/day),feed intake (7.2%+-0.4g/fish),protein efficient ratio (1.7+-0.2),and the best feed conversion ratio (0.9+-0.1).All fish fed FBPM-based diets also attained the better survival (93-95%) than those fed control diet (83%). Since FBPM is a by-product of marine fisheries industry,it should be considered as a major protein source in the diets for red tilapia fry.
