Abstract

The global farming of fish and shellfish has been the fastest growing food producing sector in the last few decades and has become an important industry in many countries. Fishmeal made from pelagic fish used to be the major dietary protein source in compounded feed for many important farmed...

Abstract

The effects of the use of Azolla filiculoides Lam., as an alternative source of protein, on growth performances and production of Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus, reared in wetland ponds was evaluated. Three isonitrogenous (27% CP) and isocaloric (4019.14 kcal/g) diets A0, A10, and A20...

Abstract

Constant improvement of animal feed formulas calls for new raw materials. In the feeding of fish, one of diet recipe optimization methods is to search for feed protein sources alternative to fish meal. The presently reported study focuses on an unconventional protein source - the erythrocyte meal - ...

Abstract

Freshwater fish species account for almost 50% of the world's aquaculture production, with tilapia, carp and catfish representing the primary culture species. These species are cultured in numerous countries as they have adaptable feeding habits, respond well to a wide variety of culture...

Abstract

Population growth combined with increasingly limited resources of arable land and fresh water has resulted in a need for alternative protein sources. Macroalgae (seaweed) and microalgae are examples of under-exploited "crops". Algae do not compete with traditional food crops for space and...

Abstract

Fifteen test diets were theoretically formulated to contain 33.32% dietary protein (dry matter) using a mixture of alternative protein sources (soyabean meal, groundnut cake, wheat bran and blood meal) and fishmeal in various proportions. Test diets were fed to fingerlings (initial weight 3.2±0.2...

CAB ReviewFull Text

Global tilapia production has been increasing in the last decade, with output doubling from 830 000 mt in 1990 to 1.6 million mt in 1999. Tilapia are very easy to culture and have the potential of becoming the prime freshwater species for culture. The ever increasing need for cheap sources of...

AbstractFull Text

This study evaluated the growth response and metabolic effects of partial replacement of animal protein source with in natura (LM) or demucilaged (DLM) linseed meal in the diet of jundiá (Rhamdia quelen) juveniles. After demucilagen increased crude protein content and reduced soluble fiber of...

AbstractFull Text

Reaching food security is in general one of the main goals in Developing Countries, especially in Africa. In those countries, a deficiency of protein is being experienced due to the lack of diversification of the food supply by the most part of the population. Fishes are beings which have the...

Abstract

A series of three feeding trials was conducted to determine the influence of different marine protein sources on growth, survival and thyroid hormone (T3 and T4) levels in barramundi larvae. Experimental diets including various proportions of fish meal, squid powder, mussel meal and krill meal were ...
