Abstract

Food intake, growth and conversion efficiency of juvenile Gambusia affinis are considerably influenced by the volume of water available per fish. On an 'ad libitum' diet of Tubifex tubifex worms, juveniles reared in intermediate amounts of "living space" of 500 and 800 ml water per 4 individuals, exhibited maximum growth and conversion efficiency. Both below and beyond these volumes of water, the above parameters decreased indicating the inhibitory influence of 'limited' as well as 'abundant' living space on the food conversion of the fish. © 1977 Indian Academy of Sciences.
