    Abstract: In this study, shrimp feed was substituted with a dried alga, Schizochytrium sp., at five levels (0, 10, 20, 40, and 60% of compound feed) to yield protein/energy (P/E) ratios of 22.72, 19.75, 16.71, 13.72 and 10.75 mg protein/KJ, respectively. The effects of this substitution on the specific growth rate (SGR), survival rate, fatty acid composition... Show More
