ABSTRACT

The effect of three different diets on growth and survival of tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) culture in a Fibre Glass Tank was examined. Nine circular Fibre Glass Tanks of 3.08m3 capacities and depth of 60.5cm each and diameter 176.78cm were used in the experiment. The treatments were dried chicken manure only, dried chicken manure with commercial diet (coppens) and commercial diet (coppens) only as control. Random fish samples 50 from each treatment were taken to determine the final mean weight. Table 3 below further show that there were significant differences in final weight gain between the three feed types, treatment I (143.47g), treatment II (171.97g) and treatment III (272.10g). The highest final mean weight gain of 272.10g was recorded in treatment III that was fed with coppens only, followed by treatment II with final mean weight gain of 171.97 fed with chicken manure with coppens and the least final mean weight gain of 143 47 was observed in treatment I fed with chicken manure only. In general, final mean weight increased and performed better with treatment that were fed with coppens only. Survival rate exceeded 90% in all treatments. Treatment I recorded 77%; treatment II 99% and treatment III 99.33% which is the highest survival rate.

Keywords: Growth, Fibre Glass Tanks, Diets.
