Abstract

Black soybeans contain high amount of antioxidant, such as phenolic compounds and anthocyanins, in their seed coat. This study aimed to investigate the beneficial effect of black soybean seed coat (BSSC) on the growth of juvenile hybrid tilapia. There were four experimental diets: casein based diet ...

Abstract

The study was to evaluate the effects of dietary fish meal (FM) partially replaced by housefly maggot meal (HMM) on growth, fillet composition and physiological responses of juvenile barramundi, Lates calcarifera. HMM at 100, 150, 200 and 300 g kg-1 was supplemented in the basal diet to replace...

Abstract

Plant-derived protein sources are the most relevant substitutes for fishmeal in aquafeeds. Nevertheless, the effects of plant based diets on the intestinal microbiome especially of juvenile Rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) are yet to be fully investigated. The present study demonstrates, based...

Abstract

This study aimed to investigate the efficacy of soaking as a cheap processing method in improving the nutritional utilization of Cajanus cajan for partial replacement of soybean meal in formulated diets of the African catfish Clarias gariepinus (Burchell, 1822). The nutrient profile of soaked C....

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate whether meat from blue mussels (Mytilus edulis) harvested from offshore structures could be used as an alternative protein source in aquaculture fish feed for turbot (Scophthalmus maximus). Two feeding experiments with turbot were conducted in an initial ...

Abstract

Three extruded diets were formulated and used to cultivate Macrobrachium rosenbergii prawns. For ninety days, the prawns were fed on the similarly balanced isonitrogeneous and isoenergetic diets, based on albumin and linseed (Linseed diet), on whey proteins concentrate (WPC) and soybean oil (Whey...

Abstract

Soybean coproducts are important protein sources in aquaculture because of their amino acid profile. Tilapia can be reared on soybean coproducts as the only source of dietary protein without compromising growth. This study estimated apparent digestibility coefficients for five soybean coproducts...

Abstract

The utilisation of insect as ingredients for animal feeds has gained considerable interest recently. For example, the potential of black soldier fly (Hermetia illucens; BSF) larvae as a cheap alternative protein source for animal feeds seems to show promising perspectives, especially for poultry...

Abstract

Bovine colostrum, an alternative food of animal origin provided as partial protein source, may constitute an innovative ingredient in fish feeding. Serum insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) and cellular activity of enteric, hepatic and muscle tissues of juvenile pacu Piaractus mesopotamicus fed...
