CTSA published two manuals under the recently-completed project “Anaylze and Compile the Nutritional Composition of Potential Feed Ingredient Resources in American Samoa into a Feed Manual for Use in Tilapia Feeds.”

The manual for adults contains feed ingredient anaylses, a tilapia feed recipe based on local ingredients, and detailed yet simple manufacturing instructions.

The manual for children simplifies the information further and provides farming families with easy-to-follow instructions to make tilapia feed in their own home using a soup can to measure ingredients!
