BARBOSA, Osvaldo Nunes; RAIZER, Josué; GONDA, Mario Fabiano  e  SILVA, Jesiel Mamedes. Performance and intestinal coefficient of pure and hybrid hatchlings of Pseudoplatystoma corruscans in feed training. R. Bras. Zootec. [online]. 2011, vol.40, n.12, pp.2621-2627. ISSN 1806-9290.

The performance of pure and hybrid "pintado" Pseudoplatystoma hatchlings at feed training was evaluated. The intestinal coefficient (IC = length of the intestine/total fish lenght) was related to volume and mass and compared by means of analysis of multivariate variance and main components. According to the fish farming station routine, the training lasts about 60 days, when animals are conditioned to feeding on floating dried feed during daylight. Approximately one hundred animals per group were collected in the initial, intermediate and final phases. At the beginning, fish were fed ground bovine heart, and then dried feed was gradually added until eventual acceptance of dried floating feed. Length and volume growth depended on the speed of intestinal growth. The intestine and the time of adaptation of the intestines are longer in hybrid animals, which is linked to the better development of these animals.
