Abstract:
This study determined the growth performance in terms of weight gain, length increment and survival of rabbitfish (S. canaliculatus) in fixed and floating net cages fed with commercial pellets. Net cages with a dimension of 2.5m x 2.5m x 3m were utilized and stocked with 50 pieces fingerlings/cage, replicated three times. Average body weight (ABW) and length increment (TBL) were recorded during sampling every fifteen days. The fish were fed three times daily at 5% of the body weight.
Study showed that treatment I (fixed cage) obtained higher ABW and TBL of 60.5 g, 13.54 cm compared to treatment II (floating cage) with 52.67 g, 12.73 cm, respectively. Results showed no significant differences between treatments for sixty days. In terms of survival, data showed that Treatment I obtained 95.33% (SR) while treatment II had 80% but not differ significantly. It is recommended that further study in the same culture system with varying stocking densities and location be conducted to compare the results of this study.
