  1. Conduct a thorough literature review of the nutritional requirements of Clarias fuscus and other species with similar biological requirements.
  2. Based on the literature review, develop and recommend different practical feed formulations for Clarias fuscus for subsequent testing and evaluation.
  3. Conduct an experimental feeding trial to compare current commercially available feeds with the new feed formulations.
  4. Conduct a thorough analysis of the results of the feeding trial from a nutritional, production, and economic standpoint.
