- Groups of milkfish juveniles (mean weight, 2.8 g) were fed diets containing white fishmeal and gelatin with varying protein-energy to total metabolizable energy (PE:TME) ratios.
- Amino acids were incorporated in the diets to stimulate the pattern of milkfish protein. The control diet contained fishmeal as sole protein source and was not supplemented with amino acids
- Among the amino acid supplemented diets, best growth was observed at PE:TME ratio of 44.4%. However, the control diet gave better growth rate than any of the amino acid supplemented diets
- Specific activities of pyruvate kinase (PK) and glutamate dehydrogenase (GDH) increased significantly with increase in dietary protein-energy level.
