Abstract

An accurate method for estimating digestibility of nutrients is essential when developing diets suitable for aquaculture species. Two methods of faecal collection (stripping and sedimentation) were evaluated for estimating crude protein and gross energy digestibility of three protein sources by of...

Abstract

A 100-day experiment was carried out with 288 fingerlings of pacu, assigned to 36, 100-litre cement containers, 8 per unit, to evaluate the replacement of fish flour by soyabean meal and protein levels in the diets. During the experimental period, average water temperature was 28°C and dissolved...

Abstract

Experiments were conducted to evaluate the effect of protein source (fish meal, soyabean and casein), protein (30, 35 and 40%) and lipid (5, 10 and 15%) levels, starvation period (5, 10 and 15 days) and feeding frequency (1, 2 and 3 meals/day) on gut evacuation time in C. carpio fingerlings...

Abstract

Experiments were conducted to evaluate the influence of protein source (fish meal, soyabean and casein), protein (30, 35 and 40%) and lipid (5, 10 and 15%) levels in the diet, feeding frequency (1, 2 and 3 meals/day) and starvation period (5, 10 and 15 days) on gut evacuation time in catla, C....

Abstract

Fingerlings of African mud catfish (Clarias gariepinus) were fed five isonitrogenous diets with inclusion levels of 0, 15, 30, 45 and 60% of jack bean Canavalia ensiformis meal (JBM) as a replacement for full fat soyabean (FFSM) during a 56-day rearing period. It was shown that the liveweight gain, ...

Abstract

This study was conducted to evaluate the suitability of the African Yam bean (S. stenocarpa) as a partial replacement for dietary full fat soyabeans for feeding O. niloticus fingerlings. Five diets were formulated to contain 15, 30, 45 and 60% of the total protein using toasted S. stenocarpa, while ...

Abstract

A 63-day feeding trial was conducted under laboratory conditions to evaluate the effects of substituting animal protein with a mixture of plant feedstuffs including 25, 30, 35, 40 and 45% of the protein with torula yeast (Candida utilis), 20% with soyabean meal and 15% with Alfalfa [lucerne] Leaf...

Abstract

Isonitrogenous and isocaloric diets containing 0, 18 or 36% toasted full-fat soyabean meal (FFSM) were fed to Atlantic halibut. The diets were fed to five tanks of fish each for 34 days (period 1). Four tanks from each treatment were then retained in the growth experiment for a further 32 days...

Abstract

An 8-week trial was conducted to assess the feasibility of replacing soybean meal (SBM) by lupin seed meal (LSM) in simulated commercial diets for juvenile tilapia starting at 0.3 g. Of the dietary protein (26% crude protein), 3.45% was from fishmeal and the rest came from the vegetable protein...

Abstract

Vegetable protein sources like soybeans, canola and maize gluten are good alternatives to fish meal. However, a large proportion of such products available on the international market may possess genetically modified (GM) components. This report concerns a study to investigate the fate and survival ...
