GENERALLY FEED IS APPLIED AT THE RATE OF 2% OF THE BODY WEIGHT OF FISH
FOR EVERY 100 Kg FISH IN THE POND GIVE
1 kg of mustard oil cake and
1 kg of rice/wheat bran
Soak the feed ingredients with little amount of water overnight to make tight dough. Make balls and apply to the pond in feeding trays fixed in the pond. The tray should be placed 1–1.5 feet below the water surface.
