The nutritional requirements for fish mainly depends on the rate of growth of the fish in conjunct with additional influences like size, metabolic function in addition to the environmental influences and management strategies employed for rearing and breeding. However, for preparing and formulating fish feed the economic aspect of each and every ingredient needs to get proper priority as it is well known that appreciable amount of nutritional loss occurs during processing, heat treatment and storage.
