Abstract
The optimum growth, food intake, food conversion efficiency, final body composition and mortality of juvenile Cichlasoma urophthalmus (Günther) was studied at different temperatures, ranging from 22.5 to 36.3°C. The results showed that food intake and specific growth rate increase rising to an apparent optimum at about 33.1°C. Multiple regression equations were derived which can be used to predict food intake and specific growth rate when temperature and initial body weight are known.
