  author={Devrim Memiş and Mehmet Salih Çelikkale and Ertan Ercan},
  journal={Turkish Journal of Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences},
In this study, white worms (Enchytraeus albidus Henle, 1837), which are used especially by aquarists and sturgeon breeders, were fed five different experimental diets, and then the numerical increase in their population was calculated. Four of the five diets were composed of carbohydrates, vegetables, fruits, and pelleted commercial trout feed, and the fifth was composed of a combination of all four of these. At the end of the study, the greatest numerical increase and best reproduction was…
