Raising Catfish - Suttle Fish Farm

Several factors dictate how much to feed catfish in a production pond. These include standing crop (number and weight of fish in the pond), fish size, water temperature, water quality, and weather. Generally catfish should be fed daily as much as they will eat without wasting feed and without hurting water quality. Feeding what the fish will eat is especially important when you raise catfish in a multiple-batch cropping system where there are several sizes of fish in the pond, because it is easier for the smaller, less aggressive fish to feed. This type of feeding may be a problem, though, since you might not know when the fish have eaten all they will eat. Thus, it is easy to overfeed, which wastes feed and may hurt water quality.

Feeding rates should not be more than what the fish in the pond need. Long-term average daily feeding rates should not be more than about 120 to 150 pounds per acre. But it is okay sometimes to feed at higher rates. Our data showed that daily feeding the fish as much as they will eat resulted in higher production and weight gain, but feed conversion was increased, compared to feeding a restricted rate of not more than 80 pounds per acre per day. The lower feed conversion in fish fed the restricted rate is mainly because of less wasted feed compared to that of fish fed to their fill. We also found that total feed input, net production, weight gain, and feed conversion were about the same when fish were fed as much as they would eat or fed at a “cut-off” rate of no more than 120 pounds per acre per day under a singlebatch cropping system.

due to usus ayam my water quality become bad ,what should i must feed to become catfish of 600 grms

Let me finish by posing this question, how would you feel being fed on a diet that consisted of the same food every day? The answer I would suggest is not very happy! I know that I would soon get fed up on a diet that was the same each day. It is for this reason that we should take a leaf out of our own book and look at what we feed to our catfish. You never know we might learn a few things about our catfish in this way!

Catfish Farming Step 3: Feeding Your Fishes - Effective Business Ideas Soybean meal, dehulled, solvent-extracted, is obtained by grinding the flakes remaining after removing most of the oil from dehulled soybeans by a solventextraction process. It contains about 48 percent highquality protein and is the predominant protein source in catfish feeds. Soybean meal has the best amino acid profile of all common plant protein sources and is highly palatable and digestible to catfish. Antinutritional factors, such as trypsin inhibitor, are destroyed or reduced to insignificant levels with heat that is applied during the extraction process. Levels of soybean meal up to 50 percent have been used in commercial catfish feeds without detrimental effects. In recent years, its use has been reduced somewhat because of increasing cost.

What You Need to Know About Feeding Aquarium Fish? - The Spruce

Very often, catfish and plecos are sold as “cleaning crews” for aquariums, giving the entirely wrong impression that these fish do not need to be fed. In fact, these fish will not exist merely by eating whatever “leftovers” there are from the rest of the fish in the tank. Cory catfish, loaches, plecos and other bottom-feeding fish need food specifically for them. In many cases, this can be much of the same foods fed to the rest of the fish in the tank — as long as the food sinks to the bottom. There also are a number of preparations that are specially designed and labeled as being for bottom feeders.
