  1. Values (means of triplicate ± SE) in the same column sharing the same superscript letter are not significantly different (P > 0.05)
  2. 1Feed efficiency ratio (FER) = Weight gain of fish/feed consumed
  3. 2Protein efficiency ratio (PER) = Weight gain of fish/protein consumed
  4. 3Protein retention (PR) = Protein gain × 100/protein consumed
