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