Abstract


Dormitator latifrons is an excellent candidate to be cultured in Mexico. In this research work four experimental treatments were carried out to evaluate the effect of stock density on growth: D3 (three organisms/m3), D5 (five organisms/m3), D6 (six organisms/m3) and D7 (seven organisms/m3), during 90 days. No significant differences were observed between the evaluated densities, although the highest increase in weight in percentage is observed with higher stock density (7 org/m3). Density did not have a negative effect on survival.

Keywords
