Abstract

The use of dried duckweed, Lemna minor, as a dietary protein source for Cyprinus carpio common carp fry reared in baskets was investigated. Five diets with similar E:P ratios were fed to common carp fry with an average initial weight of 0.29 g for 90 days. A diet containing 5, 10, 15 or 20%...

Abstract

In the work to find replacement for fish meal in feed for fish, the inclusion of plant protein sources at high dietary level is an important issue. The present experiment was carried out to reveal how different feed ingredients affected the eating quality of the grown up fish with focus on nitrogen ...

Abstract

Effects of dietary L-carnitine were studied in juvenile black sea bream (Sparus macrocephalus). The semipurified basal diet [crude protein 450 g kg-1 dry matter (DM); crude lipid 126 g kg-1 DM] was formulated to choose white fishmeal as the protein source and fish oil plus corn oil (1:1) as the...

Abstract

This study was designed to determine whether L-carnitine supplementation is necessary in a tilapia diet containing low-fish meal and a high lipid level, which is beneficial economically and for the environment. The effects of dietary L-carnitine on the growth, body composition, blood traits and...

Abstract

The effects of high levels of replacement of dietary fish meal (FM) by mixtures of plant protein (PP) sources on growth performance, lipid composition, protein and lipid digestibility and fatty acid profile were investigated in Atlantic salmon, Salmo salar. Experimental diets containing 35% protein ...

Abstract

A feeding trial was conducted to compare the effects of supplemental cholesterol in fish meal (FM), fish protein concentrate (FPC), soy protein isolate (SPI) and soy protein concentrate (SPC)-based diets on growth performance and plasma lipoprotein levels of Japanese flounder (Paralichthys...

Abstract

The effects of corn steep liquor (CSL), a by-product of corn starch industry, in the fish diet at 25% (D1), 50% (D2) and 75% (D3) replacement of fish meal are investigated on the growth of Labeo rohita (rohu) fingerlings. Formulated feeds were iso-nitrogenous (39% crude protein) and iso-energetic...

Abstract

Increasing demand and rising costs of fish meal (FM) coupled with static landings of reduction fisheries have made continued use of FM-rich aquaculture feeds environmentally and economically unsustainable. Animal- and plant-derived proteins have been investigated as alternatives to FM, with...

Abstract

Recently, we reported that growth of Atlantic salmon was reduced as dietary fishmeal (FM) was lowered from 25% to 5% in dual-substituted feeds compared to a control diet, formulated to represent the current upper levels of substitution of FM and fish oil. In the present study, the effects of...

Abstract

A growth trial was conducted to test three isonitrogenous diets (59% crude protein, dry matter basis) for Senegalese sole during the ongrowing stage. A control diet (S-15) based on a commercial diet for sole (15% crude fat, 23 kJ g-1 energy) was compared with a plant protein based diet (S-15PP)...
