    Abstract

    This report presents the results of a series of trials aimed at quantifying the effects of feeding saltwater crocodiles standard and experimental diets in a commercial farming context. The results provide benchmark quantification of food consumption rates, growth rates, food conversion rates and in some cases, the partitioning of food consumption into maintenance and growth components, with food conversion rates for that growth component.

    The report is primarily targeted at commercial crocodile farmers, and the management and research staff engaged at various levels, to help improve on-farm productivity.
