Abstract

Fish meal (FM) has long been considered an essential ingredient for the formulation of shrimp feeds. Until recently, 12%FM was considered a minimum amount, below which weight gain would become reduced due to a reduction in feed intake. In order to test this perceived minimum value, an experiment...

Abstract

A growth trial was conducted with the aim of developing a practical, environmentally sustainable and cost-effective plant-protein-based diet for Senegalese sole juveniles without compromising growth or protein deposition. A reference diet contained fish meal as the main protein source (F45,...

Abstract

Apparent digestibility coefficients (ADCs) of dry matter (ADCd), crude protein (ADCp), energy (ADCe) and amino acids in selected feedstuffs were determined for juvenile Siberian sturgeon (8.38±0.20 g). The tested feedstuffs were fishmeal (FM), meat and bone meal (MBM), poultry by-product meal,...

Abstract

Aquaculture feeds for carnivorous finfish species have been dependent upon the use of fish meal as the major source of dietary protein; however, the increasing demands upon the finite quantity of this high-quality protein source requires that feeds become increasingly comprised of alternative plant ...

Abstract

Achieving true sustainability in fish farming requires the replacement of most of the fish meal and fish oil utilized as feedstuffs. The present experiment reports 2 feeding trials that resulted in the total replacement of fish meal and fish oil in juvenile cobia (Rachycentron canadum). The first...

Abstract

In minimal-exchange, superintensive culture systems, the flocculated (biofloc) particles that accumulate may provide benefits for cultured shrimp; however, excessive particle accumulation can hinder shrimp performance. Also, the shrimp aquaculture industry is reliant on marine fish-based feeds....

Abstract

Two experiments were conducted in order to investigate the effect of dietary mannan oligosaccharides (MOS) on gilthead sea bream (Sparus aurata). Experiment I was designed to assess the effect of dietary MOS (0%, 0.2% and 0.4%) on fish fed diets containing fishmeal (FM) as the only protein source....

Abstract

The basic nutrient requirements for channel catfish, Ictalurus punctatus, are well known, with anecdotal evidence suggesting that catfish fry grow faster and have better survival when fed an animal protein diet. However, the ability to grow channel catfish as small as 11 g on all plant diets and a...

Abstract

This article discusses the utilization of soyabean meal and poultry byproducts as protein sources in the formulation and production of shrimp diets that will reduce the level of fish meal in shrimp feeds, especially for Pacific white shrimps (Litopenaeus vannamei [Penaeus vannamei]). The beneficial ...
