Fish Feed formulation
Owner & Collaborators
Fish feed is one of the major inputs in aquaculture production. Market fish feed is in high rate so we prepared fish feed by using raw materials like Ground Nut Cake and Rice husk which can made easily available in local markets and which costs low and can be farm made, having protein value about 30.66%. A good fish food for high density fish farming should contain all required nutrients, high protein 32 to 48% which is standard protein value.
- After 10-15 min when ground nut cake get soften so that it can be easily crushed by hands (No need to add water after cake get soaked).
- As it gets crushed into consistency like idli dough, slowly add rise husk and mix it properly.
- Stir this mixture thoroughly.
- Now the mixture is ready to roll into pellets (manually).
- Let the ready pellets allow sun drying for 5-6 hours. After drying feed should be crushed in mixer or it should be crushed with the help of mortar and pestle. (It is quite time consuming). Finally we can have ready feed as shown in snap.
- Fish feed formulation from locally available raw materials per fish’srequirement and prepared formulation is given through the equipment as shown in image.
