Phosphorus (P) is a critical nutrient vital for growth and buffer systems in the blood. However, excess supply can lead to toxic effects in fish and eutrophication and pollution problems in the culture environment. African catfish (Clarias gariepinus) juveniles were fed diets containing different levels of inorganic phosphorus supplements to determine its optimum requirements for fish growth. Eleven diets were used. Their P content varied from 3.9 g/kg diet (for the basal diet) to 13.5 g/kg… CONTINUE READING
