Effect of different diets on the growth and biochemical aspects of fresh water crab, Himalayapotamon emphysetum, available in the local water bodies of Jammu region of J&K state


Dr. Priya Manhas, Seema Langer

One of the cultivable aqua animals in fresh water bodies are the crabs. Even though it has great potential for the employment generation, very little work has been done on the culture aspect of this crustacean. A study has therefore, been undertaken as a step towards the development of culture technology of the crab. In the present study, the effect of different feeds were studied on the growth and biochemical aspects of Himalayapotamon emphysetum. The feed was given daily @5% of the body weight for a duration of ninety days. It was recorded in the present study that best results in terms of growth and nutritional status were recorded for combined feed than the individual diets.
