Abstract

An aquaponic system shows evidence of increasing economic efficiency and environmental sustainability. An efficient aquaponic system is heavily dependent on the quality of aquatic life in it. In order to ensure the quality of the aquatic life, the quality of its feed must be ensured as well. This research uses proximate analysis to analyze fish feed in terms of percent moisture, fat content, crude fiber extraction and crude protein extraction and correlate these with fish body composition as well.
