Languages of publication
Nilem fish is an endemic fish in West Java that has the potential to be developed into superior aquaculture products. The effect of feed additives on growth can help in increasing the protein synthesis process so that the fish growth process can be optimal. This research was carried out at the Ciparanje Experimental Pond Hatchery at the Faculty of Fisheries and Marine Sciences, Universitas Padjadjaran, from October 1 2018 to November 20 2018. The research method was carried out experimentally with Completely Randomized Design (CRD). This study used four treatments which were repeated three times. The treatment in this study consisted of adding potassium diformate to artificial feed at doses of 0%, 0.1%, 0.3%, and 0.5% per 100 grams of feed. The parameters observed in this study were survival, growth rate, feed efficiency, and water quality. The analysis used was the f test and descriptive analysis. The survival rate, growth rate and feed efficiency range from 87.08% -93.75%, 2.22% -2.26% and 41.21%-47.69% respectively. The addition of potassium diformate to artificial feed up to 0.5% per 100 grams of feed can be used as a feed additive in nilem fish cultivation.
