|Abstract:||Three feeding regimes were tested to determine their effects on growth, survival, and feed conversion in rainbow trout alevins for 60 days. In the first regime, the alevins were fed a starter feed consisting of 800 micron parti- cles for the first 15-day period. For the following 15-day period, the alevins were given a starter feed consisting of 1200 micron particles. For the final two 15-day periods, the alevins were given feeds consisting of 1500 micron and 2 mm particles, respectively. In the second regime, feed particles in the four periods were 1200 micron, 1500 micron, 2 mm, and 3 mm granules, respectively. In the third regime, feeds contained 1500 micron, 2 mm, 3 mm, and 4 mm granules. During the first two 15-day periods, no significant dif- ferences in growth parameters were detected (p>0.05). In the second two 15-day periods, there were significant differences in final live weight, growth, and feed conversion rates between groups (p<0.05). Growth was lowest in the group fed the first regime. There were no significant differ- ences between groups in survival rate (p>0.05).|
