Resumo

The aim of this study was to evaluate the performance of different rate in percentage feeding of the productivity (Body weight (BW) and feed conversion (FC)) of juvenile tambaqui (Colossoma macropomum), with a total of 13500 animals, distributed in nine cages, with n = 1500 fish/cage, with three replicates in a period of four weeks. The animals were feed with   three treatments: treatment 1 (2% BW); treatment 2 ( 3% BW) and treatment 3 (4% BW), divided in two meals,  and feed  with commercial food 36% crude protein. The BW gain was significantly higher for the animals that received feed rate of 4% BW. However, apparent feed conversion was better when used the rate of (2% BW- treatment 1) of tambaqui reared in cages.
