Abstract:

A growth and digestibility study were conducted on fry of grey mullet Mugil cephalus fed with the pelleted feed of 30% protein content incorporated with herbal liver tonic (Livol) of four different doses viz., 0, 0.5, 1.0 and 1.5%. Fishes fed with Livol incorporated diets showed higher growth than without ‘Livol’. Significantly (p<0.05) superior growth was observed in the fish fed with 1.0% liver tonic incorporated diet. However there was no significant difference in growth of fish observed in 0.5 and 1.5% ‘Livol’ incorporated feed. Lower Hepato somatic index (HIS) and higher Viscerosomatic index (VSI) were recorded in Livol treated fish than without Livol. Highest weight gain, food conversion efficiency, protein efficiency, nutrient digestibility and muscle protein retention were recorded in the fishes treated with 1% herbal liver tonic (Livol). Whereas highest apparent lipid retention was recorded in the fish fed with 1.5% Livol incorporated diet.
