Abstract:   (1435 Views)
To investigate the effect of its various aspects and the effect on growth, nutrition, and biochemical composition of body, Asian Sea bass fish with an average initial weight of 33 ± 0.9 gr were experimented in three hundred-liter polyethylene circular tanks in three repetitions. Feeding was done twice a day for up to 60 days. The results showed that growing Asian sea bass in fresh-water and seawater did not have a significant effect on growth performance indicators (except for the average final length) (P > 0.05). The mean secondary length in saltwater treatment was significantly higher (P < 0.05). Therefore, In addition, among the calculated nutritional parameters, only the food index received between treatments had a significant difference (P < 0.05) and other indicators and biochemical body compounds did not show a significant difference (P > 0.05). Cultivation of freshwater fish has a lower feed conversion ratio (0.92 ± 0.06); however, these changes were not significant. Overall, the study showed that it can withstand a wide range of different salinities for 60 days and grow well without showing any casualties.
