|Title:||An artificial prawn feed formulation with non-edible meat of gastropods Chicoreus virgineus and Rapana rapiformis|
|Authors:||Edward, J K Patterson|
|Abstract:||The non-edible meat of gastropods Chicoreus virgineus and Rapana rapiformis were used in formulated diets as a major source of protein for the prawn Penaeus indicus. Higher growth rate and best conversion efficiency were observed in the prawns fed with the diet F-1 which contained C. virgineus meat. The biochemical composition of the F-1 fed prawns were increased and this can be used in the aquaculture industry with further modification to lower the FCR value.|
