2010 - Purina Rainbow Trout Feed Study by Rebecca Philipps

Analysis of a Purina Aquamax and a Purina Experimental Diet for Rainbow Trout based on Protein Content
Rebecca Philipps, UWSP -NADF Summer Intern 2010

Abstract
From July 12th 2010 through August 16th 2010 Rainbow Trout fingerlings were grown at Northern Aquaculture Demonstration Facility. Two Purina diets were tested: Purina Aquamax Grower 500 (41% crude protein, 4% crude fiber) and Purina Experimental High Protein feed (56.5% crude protein, 2.5% crude fiber, 4.0% starch). The two feeds were distributed to the trout in separate raceways, each with three 80 ft3 compartments. All compartments were fed twice daily at 1.2% total body weight. Both feeds had high survival rates of greater than 99.5%. After the five week growth study, the growths were compared using percent gain in weight and length, food conversion ratios, and condition factors in order to determine whether the higher protein content affected the growth of Rainbow Trout fingerlings.
