There is a need to know what feeding frequency is optimal, both financially and in terms of production. The objective of the study was to evaluate the effects of different feeding regimes on growth performance, food conversion, survival, and cannibalism of African catfish of C. gariepinus. Growth performance of the African catfish, African catfish (Clarias gariepinus) is appreciated by consumers for the quality of its meat (Pruszyński, ) and is mostly smoked and used in soups. It is commercial production of catfish capital intensive as.

African Journal of Agricultural Research 4(4): Anibeze CIP, Eze A () Growth response of two African Catfishes (Osteichthys: Clariidae) in Homestead concrete ponds. The African catfish, Clarias gariepinus has been reared for almost 20 years in Africa with mixed success; the total farm production of this species being only 3, metric tonnes or % of the total farmed fish production of 69, mt in Africa in To a large extent the poor performance of this. African catfish can be produced most economically in tropical and subtropical countries, which have favourable temperatures for growth as stated earlier. Production costs in these countries vary from USD. The experiment was conducted to investigate the effects of different imported fish feeds on the performance of juvenile African Catfish (Clarias gariepinus). A week feeding trial was conducted using juveniles which were randomly assigned to five treatment groups in 15 indoor plastic tanks at a stocking rate of 15 fish per tank and three (3) replicates per treatment.

MASS PRODUCTION OF FRY AND FINGERLINGS OF THE AFRICAN CATFISH CLARIAS GARIEPINUS Introduction. Semi-natural or hormone-induced propagation of Clarias in ponds/ tanks as described in chapter one has not proved to be a reliable method for mass production of fry. Therefore, artificial propagation under controlled environmental conditions in a hatchery has become a .

However, intensive African catfish culture have failed due to the high protein commercial diets with increased feed cost (Cho et al., ; Taufek et al., ). Indeed, fish diet is.
