Abstract: This study aims to determine the level of carbohydrates and feeding frequency on feed convertion ratio and survival of shrimp vanamei juvenile. Research using completely randomized design by factorial patern with two factors and three replications. Treatments were factor A (carbohydrate levels, namely 18, 32, 40 and 50%), and factor B (frequency of feeding 2, 4 and 6 times per day). Shrimp vanamei which was used have an average weight of 0.3 g per individual. Feed dose was 10% of the body weight of shrimp with the feeding frequency adapted to the treatment. The results showed that the factor levels of carbohydrate feeding, feeding frequency and the combination of both give a signiﬁ cant effect on feed convertion ratio of shrimp vanamei juvenile with the best combination of 50% carbohydrate level and feeding frequency 6 times per day. Treatment levels of carbohydrates, feeding frequency and combination of both give no signiﬁ cant effect on survival of shrimp vanamei juvenile.
Keywords: frequency of feeding, feed convertion ratio, the level of carbohydrates, survival rate.
