Industrial feed for basa fish

Regarding industrial feed, the nutritional content is stable, and it is easy to use, store and transport easily. When using industrial feed to raise basa fish, people pay attention to feeding with protein content of 28 to 30%, in the following months, the protein content is gradually reduced to about 25 to 26%. In the last two months, only feeds with 20 to 22% protein content were used.

However, because the cost of industrial food is quite high, now, using homemade food is more applied. Basa fish farmers research, process and use their own food, because raw materials are cheap, easy to find and easy to use. However, homemade foods contain less nutrients than industrial foods and take longer to prepare.
