dc.description.abstractThe effects of feeding frequency and amount of food on the growth of juvenile groupers (Epinephelus malabaricus) were investigated for 12 weeks of rearing in net-cages set in an earthen pond. The juveniles (110-130 g in body weight, BW) attained marketable size (500 g) in 12 weeks. Feeding to satiation levels once a day gave the best growth (mean BW = 509.4 ± 56.5 g) and relatively good food conversion ratio (4.78) compared to the other treatments (twice a day, once in two days and once in every three days). Concerning feeding levels, in which feed was given twice a day at 15, 10, 5 and 1% of total fish biomass per day, the best fish growth (426.6 ± 54.0 g) and a reasonable food conversion ratio (4.53) were obtained at 5% fish biomass. There was a positive correlation between the growth of fish and water temperature in both experiments.en
