Table 2 Survival (%), weight gain (g/abalone), and specific growth rate (SGR; %/day) of juvenile abalone fed the extruded pellets for 120 days

From: Inclusion effect of soybean meal, fermented soybean meal, and Saccharina japonica in extruded pellet for juvenile abalone (Haliotis discus, Reeve 1846)

Experimental diets Initial weight (g/abalone) Final weight (g/abalone) Survival (%) Weight gain (g/abalone) SGR1 (%/day)
FSM 5.7 ± 0.08a 8.5 ± 0.04b 92.3 ± 0.32a 2.8 ± 0.04c 0.33 ± 0.018c

  1. Values (means of duplicate ± SE) in the same column sharing a common superscript are not significantly different (P > 0.05)
  2. 1Specific growth rate (SGR; %/day) = [(Ln(Wf) − Ln(Wi))/days of feeding] × 100, where Ln(Wf) = natural log of the final mean weight of abalone and Ln(Wi) = natural log of the initial mean weight of abalone
