Abstract

The consumption of feed aquaculture (pellets) in juvenile shrimp (Litopenaeus Vannamei) was determined, 3 formulations were used: aquaculture binder with tuna attractant with pellets (M1), commercial binder with pellets (M2), and only pellets (M3). In the study was put 200 g of pellets mixed with the 2 types of aquaculture binders and only pellets, and were put in alternating feeders during the experimentation. Using the mixture 1 (M1) was obtained a consume of 83% of pellets in the feeders of the aquaculture pool, using the mixture 2 (M2) was obtained a consume of 62% of shrimp foods in the feeders, while only using pellets (M3) a consume of 79% was obtained. Differences were found between the results of the 3 mixtures tested for Litopenaeus Vannamei, being the mixture 1 (M1) that presented the greatest consume of pellets in the aquaculture shrimp. The aquaculture binder with tuna attractant (LA) presented the highest content of protein (1.90) and lysine content of 0.37%. The results showed that the aquaculture binder with tuna attraction presented superior organoleptic and nutritional characteristics that are directly related with the feeding of juvenile shrimp (Litopenaeus Vannamei).
