Fish feeding is a period of intensive feeding after spawning (pike, yaz, perch, roach, etc.) or before reproduction (omul, teal, whitefish, muksun, etc.). For many fish, feeding is preceded by migration to fattening grounds.
Fish feeding, cultivation of marketable (table) fish in fattening ponds. In carp pond farming (with a two-year turnover), annuals (over-wintered yearlings) with a standard weight of 25-30 g are usually left for fattening with a standard weight of 25-30 g. They are transferred from wintering ponds to fattening ponds in early spring. The size of fish planting in the pond is calculated depending on the natural fish productivity of the water body, planned weight gain, additional feeding and other factors. Carp feed mainly on zoobenthos and zooplankton. In intensive farming, supplementary feeding is used. The main feeds for carp: grain, flour, bran, cake, grass meal, animal and mineral feeds. It is better to feed fodder mixtures in the form of pellets. Crushed mixtures are moistened, thoroughly kneaded and given to the fish in a dough-like form. Feed carp once - twice a day from feeders. Feed is distributed from flat-bottomed boats or feeders.
