Pengaruh Pemberian Daphnia Sp. Yang Di Perkaya Dengan Sumber Lemak Yang Berbeda Terhadap Kelangsungan Hidup Dan Pertumbuhan Larva Ikan Nila,
This experiment was conducted to evaluate best source of oil to enriched Daphnia sp. before fed it to Oreochromis niloticus larvae. Four treatments were used in this experiment; first, Daphnia sp. without encrichment, second Daphnia sp. enriched with fish oil, third Daphnia sp. enriched with corn oil and the fourth Daphnia sp. enriched with coconut oil. Three days old larvae fed on Daphnia sp. with size of 0,5 mm at the first week and 0,6 – 1,0 mm as the second week of this experiment. Larvae fed on Daphnia sp. 5 times daily, ad libitum, for 14 days. Larvae was reared in the small cages (2,25 l), and all cages was placed in the aquarium. Larvae density was 48 larvae/l. This experiment showed that the lipid level in Daphnia sp. enriched with oil was higher than that of no enrichment Daphnia sp. The highest n3- fatty acid level was found in Daphnia sp. enriched with fish oil, and the highest n6- fatty acid level was found in Daphnia sp. enriched with corn oil. Larvae fed on Daphnia sp. enriched with oil have a higher relative growth rate than that fed on Daphnia sp. without enrichment. The highest survival rate of larvae was found by feeding them with Daphnia sp. enriched with corn oil (p < 0,05).
