    • Abstract


      Assay of amylase activity carried out in 3 species of carps viz.Cyprinus carpio, Catla calla andHypothalmichthys molitrix, when fed with 3 formulated feeds viz. protein, lipid and carbohydrate rich diets, showed an increase in the enzyme activity discernible after 15 days of feeding. The activity decreased during the starvation period. Protein rich diet ensured better growth in fishes than the lipid and carbohydrate rich diets.
