Abstract: Mullet feeding experiments were carried out for 14 days under laboratory conditions using 200 mullets, divided in four lots, weighing from 10.3 to 10.8g in mean weight among lots. The relationship between daily rate of feeding (r) and daily rate of growth 9g) was presented by the formula r=0.04251f - 0.002926 and the rate for maintenance of the body weight was m=6.88% of body weight when fed the experimental feed composed of yam, copra meal, tuna meat and wheat flour....
