Studies on Marine Streptomycetes Associated with Seaweeds and Their Application as Single Cell Protein for Growth of the Juvenile Fish, Brachydanio rario
The present investigation was an attempt to understand the distribution pattern of Streptomycetes in the five selected sea weed collected from Kovalam coast and the effect of isolated Streptomycetes as Single Cell Protein that has been incorporated into the artificial feed on growth of juveniles of Brachydanio rario. Food conversion efficiency and food conversion ratio were determined. From the experiment it is clear that microbial Single Cell Protein can be used to replace the fishmeal to certain extent in the artificial feeds.
