PIAIA, Rosamari and RADUNZ NETO, João. Effect of crescent levels of yeast of alcohol used in rations containing bovine liver on larvae of (Rhamdia quelen) performance. Cienc. Rural [online]. 1997, vol.27, n.2, pp. 313-317. ISSN 0103-8478. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-84781997000200024.
The present study was developed with the purpose of evaluating the effects of different protein levels in initial performance of Rhamdia quelen larvae during the first three weeks of life. The sample contained 3000 larvae distributed in fifteen groups, maintained in controlled conditions of culture and utilizing termoregulatory water re-use system. Five crescent levels of yeast (T1 50%, T2 60%, T3 70%, T4 80% and T5 90%) were used in rations in substituition of bovine liver. Levels of crude protein and digestible energy varied 41,36% to 26,56% CP and from 3197 to 2789 kcal ED/kg. The granulometry of tested food was of 100 a 200m, 200 a 400m and 400 a 600m for three experimental weeks respectively. Food distribution provided at ease between 8 Am and 8 Pm. Within the net protein used in this research, there was found a positive effect for the highest protein levels for total, standard lenght and individual weight while, it was observed a negative effect over the larval survival of jundia Rhamdia quelen.
