Abstract:

A
3-month randomized factorial design 4×2 (four levels of Date
stone (DS) (0, 15, 30, and 45%), two levels (0 and 0.03%) of
Marjoram (M) and three replicates). The trial was conducted
in twenty four glass aquaria. Ten fingerlings of Nile
tilapia were placed in each aquarium with an average weight
15.40 ± 0.3 g fish. Fish were fed twice daily (six days a
week) at a rate of 3% of body weight. The results revealed
that, mean final weight (g/fish), SGR (% /day), feed
conversion ratio, PPV and PER, were significantly (p ≤ 0.05)
affected by the levels of DS and level of M. And the best
diet achieved which contain 15% DS and supplemented with
0.03 % M was not significantly different from control diet
in fish performance.


 From the above results and the economic information of these
study it can be concluded that, diet containing 15% of DS
with 0.03% M exhibited the highest net profit and would seem
to be the most desirable level of DS and M in the system
studied.
