Biochemical changes in proximate and body composition of Tor tor (Hamilton, 1822) fed with various concentrations of protein

Akram Lone, Swapna Lone


The present study was aimed to assess the proximate biochemical composition of body and faecal matter of Tor tor fed with feed combination containing 25% CP (T-1), 30% CP (T-2), 40% CP (T-3) and control group (T-4) containing 20% CP. The results of the proximate composition of the faeces of Tor tor revealed the higher CP% of 18.64±0.03 in fishes fed on feed containing 40±0.01 CP in the basal diet. The whole body carcass analysis revealed higher concentrations of accumulated CP% as high as 65.34±34 (T-3), fed with 40% basal crude protein. The overall study revealed that inclusion of 40% CP in mahaseer diet could lead to better growth and feed efficiency
