Effect of feeding frequency on gastric evacuation and the return of appetite in tilapia Oreochromis niloticus ( L . )

  title={Effect of feeding frequency on gastric evacuation and the return of appetite in tilapia Oreochromis niloticus ( L . )},
  author={Marty A Riche and D Haley and M. Oetker and S. Garbrecht and Donald L. Garling},
The rate at which food is consumed and the efficiency with which it is utilized are prime factors in determining growth rate. There is a positive relation between growth and feeding frequency. Additionally, feeding frequency is strongly correlated with gastric evacuation time (GET). Nile tilapia Oreochromis niloticus were fed to satiation with a pelleted diet at two different feeding frequencies (three meals day 1 and five meals day ) to evaluate the effects of feeding frequency on gastric… CONTINUE READING
