Fish feed is the material base for fish growth and reproduction. So seeking environmental protection and cost-effective fish feed is critical for fish farmers. Dry feed pellet is more suitable for fish farming compared with traditional fish feeds.
Dry feed pellet is produced by grounding the feed ingredients, mixing them with vitamins, fat, fish oil and other liquid nutritions according to a certain of proportion, pelletizing them and other processes to form the final shape. The water content is controlled under 12 percents.
Fish are traditionally fed with trash fish and shrimps in many areas. Trash fish which contain high fat content and other nutrients have good palatability but the 75 percents of water content needs fish to consume great quantities of feeds to meet nutrition requirements.This will waste fish feeds and increase feed costs. Dry feed pellet contains low water content so a small of feed pellets can meet the nutrition needs of fish. However the low water content causes the dry feed pellet has hard texture which are not palatable for fish. Fish farmers can take some measures to make fish get accustomed to dry feed pellets. Stop feeding for one or two days before switching to dry feed pellets. Fish farmers can also feed fish with dry feed pellets and trash fish initially, then reducing the quantity of trash fish gradually and increasing the dry feed pellet amount accordingly, until totally using the dry feeds pellet. Dry feed pellet has hard texture so it can keep the shape in water for a long time and don’t cause fines to pollute water.
Dry feed pellet should not be fed too quickly or too much because this will waste feeds and pollute water. The best feeding way is to give frequent feeds pellet with small quantities.
