Inclusion Of Banana (Musa Paradisiaca) Meal In The Diet On The Productive Parameters Of (Oreochromis Spp)
Tilapia (Oreochromis Spp) introduced in many countries susceptible to cultivation, adaptable to different environments, and food and water quality, important in aquaculture for an intensive system, with fast growth and excellent performance. The objective was to determine the inclusion of banana (Musa paradisiaca) meal in the diet on productive parameters as an alternative by-product of fattening (O. spp). The treatments evaluated were banana meal (0, 10, 15, 20%), in the fattening stage with four treatments and four replicates, a total of 128 experimental units, arranged in 16 randomly distributed cages. A DCA and Tukey were used to compare means (p<0.05). The results obtained showed that the T1 treatment with the inclusion of 10% banana meal (Musa paradisiaca) presented better yields in weight gain with 15.7 g, feed consumption was palatable, which led the tilapia to consume more, and the initial feed conversion was 28.99% and final 44.47%, there was low mortality with the consumption of this by-product, total growth in the size of 15.52 cm, the proximal analysis of the study carried out provided an additional nutritional assessment in the feeding. Likewise, the fillet and carcass yields were 39.29% and 93.6%, respectively, obtaining a lower value in the by-products of 60.61%. Therefore, it was concluded that among the four treatments, the most acceptable was 10%, determining that the inclusion of these by-products of vegetable origin in the diet does not affect the biological parameters and meat yields.
