Bitterlich G, Gnaiger Erich (1984) Aquaculture

Abstract: Small zooplankton, rotatoria and nauplii decomposed rapidly during in-vitro incubation in the gut fluid of silvercarp. Algae remained unchanged. Gut content analysis, therefore, erroneously suggests a phytoplanktivorous strategy, whereas omnivorous feeding may actually be required for maintaining a positive energy balance in these stomachless fish.
