The development of the fisheries is influenced by the availability of quality feeds. <em>Dunaliella salina</em> is a unicellular green algae that can be used as fish feeds. <em>D. salina</em> is known to contain many nutrients such as protein, carbohydrates, fats, pigments, and others. <em>D. salina</em> has also been shown to increase the growth rate of various types of fish. Not only for growth, but several studies have shown that <em>D. salina </em>has favorable effects on immunology. This article aims to explain the nutritional content and the effect of <em>D. salina</em> on the growth and health of fish. Based on the above studies, <em>D. salina</em> has the potential to be used as an alternative feed for various types of fish.</p> Dian Yuni Pratiwi ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://journalajfar.com/index.php/AJFAR/article/view/30176 Fri, 27 Nov 2020 00:00:00 +0000 Evaluation Trial on Production Performance of Freshwater Mud Eel (Monopterus cuchia) in Farmer’s Pond https://journalajfar.com/index.php/AJFAR/article/view/30177 <p>The experiment was conducted to evaluate the production performance of freshwater mud eel (<em>Monopterus cuchia)</em> with supplementary feed for a period of 5 months in field level. Two ponds were selected for this experiment in Maulovibazar district. Baby cuchia having weight of 50<strong>-</strong>70 g were stocked in ponds at a stocking density of 10<strong>/</strong>m<sup>2</sup> in filter net. Liming (CaO) was done in all the ponds at rate of 250 kg/ha. A safety shelter for cuchia was developed by installing bamboo root, plastic and bamboo<strong>-</strong>made hollow pipe, aquatic vegetation and necessary objects in the pond. Different physico<strong>-</strong>chemical parameters were found to be within the acceptable ranges for <em>M</em><strong><em>. </em></strong><em>cuchia</em> culture in all ponds. Supplementary feed composed of fish paste (50<strong>%</strong>), fish meal (40<strong>%</strong>), rice bran (5<strong>%</strong>) and wheat flour (5<strong>%</strong>) was applied at the rate of 2<strong>-</strong>3<strong>% </strong>of body weight. After 5 months of rearing, total production obtained were 28.3±1.09 and 31.9±2.56 kg from pond-1 and pond-2, respectively. The highest production was obtained from pond-2 and lowest production was obtained in pond-1. The net profit gained from pond-1 and pond-2 were tk 2559 and 3211 per decimal, respectively.</p> Parvez Chowdhury, A. F. M.
