Abstract:
The influence of the level of carbohydrate in a purified diet on the growth of slow-growing Anguilla anguilla maintained at different temperatures was examined. The average weight increase of eels maintained at temperatures of 25° or 27° C and fed a diet containing 20% or 30% glucose, was significantly higher than the mean weight increase of eels maintained at the same temperature but fed a diet containing soluble corn starch, at the same percentages. There was no significant difference in the mean weight of slow growing eels fed 10%, 20% and 30% soluble corn starch or 10% glucose. There was no significant difference in protein content (wet weight) among the experimental groups. However, elvers that were fed a high percentage of carbohydrates (glucose or starch) and maintained at 27° C had a higher percentage of lipids in body weight compared with the other experimental groups. © 1987 Dr W.
