  1. Values are means from groups (n = 3) of fish where the values in each row with different superscripts are significantly different (P < 0.05)
  2. Pooled SEM pooled standard error of mean (SD/√n)
  3. §Weight gain (%): (final wt. − initial wt.) × 100/initial wt.
  4. Specific growth rate (%/day): (ln final wt. − ln initial wt.) × 100/days
  5. ¤Feed efficiency (%): (wet weight gain/dry feed intake) × 100
  6. *Survival rate = (total fish − dead fish) × 100/total fish
