    In terms of protein content Ugachick fish feed is okay at its price range, if proper management is done on the cage farm the feed performs well though not the best. The fish do grow well when proper feeding conditions are observed. If your management practices are very good you can opt for the imported feeds which cost more but offer best growth rates. But if management is NOT done well the imported feed can easily send the farm into serious LOSSES. Good luck.

    Yeah

    Many farmers have used it and they’ve had good results. However for a better FCR one must at least be keen to the following

    1. On the Fish side
    • Stage of growth, fish size (weight), stock sizes etc
    1. On the Feed side
    • Feed type (powder or pellets), pellet sizes (1.5, 2.5, 4 etc), feeding rate and frequency, feeding response etc.  

    Also not forgetting the management issues like water quality mgt, proper stocking densities, proper pond or cage alignment or layout etc
