Abstract

In order to maximize the output, minimize the waste produced by the fish, and develop nutritionally adequate diets, the digestibility and nutritional value of feed ingredients were evaluated. The objective of this study was to determine apparent digestibility coefficients (ADCs) of dry matter,...

An experiment was conducted at Bunda fish farm from November 2009 to February 2010. Juveniles of Tillapia rendalli of average weight 9.5±SD 0.5 g were stocked in outdoor concrete tanks and fed on diets of different plant protein sources formulated at different crude protein (CP) levels. The results ...

Abstract

There is a need to find sustainable alternatives to fishmeal (FM) and fish oil (FO) in feed formulations to support the continued growth of aquaculture. FM is mostly produced from mass-caught pelagic species, but the production has been relatively constant for several decades. The aim of this study ...

Abstract

An 8-week feeding trial was conducted to investigate the dietary protein requirement of juvenile mandarin fish, Siniperca scherzeri, a demersal freshwater piscivore with high commercial value in East Asia. Five isolipidic (100 g/kg) and isoenergetic (20 MJ/kg) practical diets were formulated to...

AbstractFull Text

Tilapia is an unique fish in the inland fish production of Sri Lanka with maximum contribution coming reservoir fisheries catches. There is a possibility to enhance tilapia aquaculture further through other systems of aquaculture practices. However, feed cost is the highest operating cost in the ...

Abstract

Nursery evaluation of catla spawn was carried out by feeding three iso-nitrogenous diets (35% protein in raw and cooked form) for a period of 30 days. The three test diets (treatments) in raw form were: T1 - groundnut oil cake (GOC)+rice bran (RB)+vitamin-mineral (V-M) premix; T2 - GOC+RB+fish meal ...

Abstract

The separate effects of protein level and source (fish meal vs. soyabean oilmeal) on feed intake and utilization were examined in C. macropomum. Groups of 12 fish (individual wet weight 0.85-1.15 g) were stocked into thirty 45-litre aquaria and fed on diets containing fish meal or soyabean oilmeal ...

Abstract

A feeding trial was conducted to evaluate the effect of nucleotides supplementation to low-fish meal feed on growth and fatty acid composition of rainbow trout. Six isonitrogenous (42% crude protein) and isolipidic (18% crude lipid) diets were formulated containing fish meal and plant ingredients...

Abstract

One hundred and sixty-eight O. niloticus fingerlings, 4.39 g, 6.58 cm, were divided into 24 groups. Fish were fed on a basal control diet (T1) containing 27% CP while Denmark fish meal was used for supplementing T1 to obtain diet T2. Other test diets (T3-T8) were prepared by adding graded levels of ...

Abstract

Fish meal is increasingly substituted in diets for gilthead sea bream with ingredients of terrestrial origin which may affect the mineral content and availability. Among these minerals, copper (Cu) is an essential trace element whose excess may have a potential toxic effect. Since ingredients of...
