Why doesn’t AWSI give recommendations on the amount of feed?
The adequate amount of feed is fish species and age specific. Most feed manufacturers give sound recommendations on the dosage of their feeds.
It is important to note that the water quality must not deteriorate due to excessive feeding. The food must be well absorbed and utilized by the fish. For some fish species, it is also important to pay attention to temperature-dependent feeding. If the water is too cold or too warm, the appetite suffers.
