Abstract
Effect of fermented cassava pomace meal (FCPM) based diet on the growth and survival of Oreochromis Niloticus was studied. Five diets containing 35% crude protein were formulated such that fermented cassava pomace meal (FCPM) replaced maize at 0%, 25%, 50%, 75%, and 100% dietary levels respectively in a completely randomized design. 100 fingerlings of Oreochromis Niloticus weighing 2.4± 0.1g were allotted to the five treatments at 25 fish each and were replicated three times. Diets containing 0% CPFM had the highest weight gain (24.35g). Similar observation was recorded for feed intake whose values were 20.00, 19.00, 18.00, 16.00 and 20.16g at 0%, 25%, 50%, 75% and 100%FCPM dietary inclusions respectively. The highest specific growth rate (SGR) value of 1.40 was obtained from the fish fed 50%FCPM diet, though, the best FCR (0.73) was obtained from fish fed 75%FCPM (p0.05). This study based on weight gain and FCR revealed that fermented cassava pomace meal may be tolerated in the diets of Oreochromis Niloticus without compromising performance. ...
