Feed quality problems and management strategies
MetadataShow full item record
Feed is the single most important input in increasing aquaculture production and profits. Success or failure in augmenting yield with feeding depends, to a large extent, on the quality of the diet. Feed quality, generally perceived as the responsibility of the feed manufacturer, is affected by factors outside of the plant such as handling, storage, and use. Thus, the maintenance of feed quality becomes partly the responsibility of the farmer. Every fish farmer must be familiar with the nature and occurrence of major feed quality problems and able to prevent and control them. This paper is based on a farmer's viewpoint. Valuable insights are provided for the feed manufacturer.
