The four dietary treatments A, B, C and D were allotted to the pigs in the groups I, II, m and IV respectively.

Diet C formed the control diet. In the diets A and B, 50 per cent and 100 per cent replacements respectively of animal protein from unsalted dried fish were made usincj dried prawn waste.
