  • Abstract:

    By means of nitrogen metabolism experiments with white fish meal on rats and sheep, it was found that the apparent and true digestibilities of the white fishmeal protein are respectively 79 and 97 percent with rats and 63 and 87 per cent with sheep. The biological value as determined by rats at approximately 9 per cent protein level is 90 and for sheep at approximately 14 percent level 74. It is concluded that white fishmeal is a good protein feed for growing sheep.
