From about 10 g liveweight Malaysian prawns (Macrobrachium rosenbergii) in 16 cylindrical cages (1 m) each with 8 prawns in a 1800-m tank were given 1 of 4 diets containing 25% CP and DE 2.9 kcal/g based on fish, soyabean and maize meals without or with cassava meal 17, 34 or 51% replacing 0, 33.3, 66.7 and 100% of the maize meal. Mean gain was 23.68, 30.45, 29.01 and 27.88 g, biomass gain 95.38, 148.59, 141.95 and 108.03 g/m, survival rate 62.5, 71.9, 71.9 and 62.5% and feed to gain ratio 5.4, 3.5, 3.4 and 4.3 with the 4 diets, respectively. There were no significant differences among treatments.
