    Abstract : Employment of coconut meal in rations for Nile tilapia through weight gain and apparent digestibility was evaluated. The experimental design was completely randomized and consisted of four treatments and four replications. Four isonitrogenous (28% crude protein) and isoenergetic (3060 kcal digestible energydigestible energySubject Category: Properties

    (ED)/kg) experimental rations were prepared with 0, 10, 20 and 30% of coconut meal. Sixty-four fingerlings, average initial weight of 0.75 g, were distributed in 16 fibreglass-built aquaria, with a capacity of 80 litres each, provided with water renovation (0.2 litre/min), aeration and heater (26.0°C). Whereas statistical analysis revealed significant difference among treatments (p<0.01), coconut meal may be included in rations for Nile tilapia fingerlings up to 30.0%. The apparent digestibility coefficient for coconut meal was 60.53% for dry matterdry matterSubject Category: Miscellaneous
