Abstract

Mortality is normal and natural in aquaculture experiments. However, it becomes a problem when measuring feed intake as a component of nutrient utilization parameters such as: feed conversion ratio, feed conversion efficiency, apparent net protein utilization, protein efficiency ratio and protein...

Abstract

This experiment was carried out to investigate the effects of dietary arginine (Arg)/lysine (Lys) on growth performance, body composition, serum biochemical indices and amino acid deposition rate in body tissues of all-male yellow catfish. All-male yellow catfish with the initial body weight of...

Abstract

A 3×3 factorial experiment was designed to determine the interactive effects of dietary protein and starch levels on growth performance of grouper (Epinephelus coioides). Nine diets were formulated to contain three levels of crude protein (P) (38%, 45% and 52%) and three levels of starch (S) (10%,...

Abstract

With the development of intensive aquaculture and deterioration of aquacultural environment, it is necessary to select new strains of high resistance to adverse environmental elements and diseases. Salinity is an important abiotic factor in aquaculture, affecting physiological activities in aquatic ...

Abstract

The abnormity of flatfish is very common in seeding breeding in aquaculture, and the morphological characteristics and distribution of chromatophores, as well as skin color changes during early life history (0-72 d) of Verasper variegatus were continuously observed and photographed, in order to...

Abstract

Background: Processing of fish and shellfish may result in substantial amounts of by-products and unless they can be used as food, the most realistic option in most cases is the production of preserved feed nutrients. If large volumes are available, reduction to fishmeal and fish oil is the...

Abstract

Research on marine gastropod breeding in India is in its infancy and scanty literature is only available. To fill the lacunae, marine gastropods of three ornamentally valued and conservation important groups such as Cyprids, Strombids and Muricids were held under captivity and studied for their...
