Abstract

Winter flounder show good potential for culture in Atlantic Canada. Information about their nutritional requirements is necessary in order to be able to formulate cost-effective feeds that produce acceptable growth rates. Fish meal, the principal protein source in most fish feeds, is one of the...

AbstractFull Text

Aquaculture is the fastest expanding food production system in the world. This rapid development largely depends upon the increased production of aqua-feeds, which traditionally rely on fishmeal (FM) as the main protein source. The increasing demand for FM use in animal and fish diets has resulted...

Abstract

The continuously increasing demand for quality food for humans in parallel with the challenge of lowering the cost of producing them have been the main motives of the rapid development of the animal nutrition science. During the last century, advanced analytical methods have been developed,...

Abstract

The present study was carried out in order to investigate the effects of the mannanoligosaccharide (MOS) and fructooligosaccharide (FOS) on sharpsnout seabream, Diplodus puntazzo in the context of partial fish meal substitution by soybean meal. One-hundred-forty-four sharpsnout seabream of about...

Abstract

Rendered animal protein ingredients, such as feather meal and blood meal, are promising animal protein sources for the replacement of fish meal often proved to combine synergistically. Three practical diets containing similar amounts of PD/ED (22.0 mg/kJ) but differing in the amount of digestible...

Abstract

Rainbow trout was cultured widespread all around the world, but the healthy of rainbow trout was generally inhibited by high-density culture. A 50-d feeding trial was carried out to investigate the effects of dietary chitosan on growth performance, body composition and non-specific immunity of...

Abstract

A feeding trial was conducted to investigate the optimal dietary L-methionine level for the large yellow croaker (Pseudosciaena crocea R.) larvae from 12 to 42 days after hatching (DAH 12-42). We designed six groups of microdiets (MDs), which contains equal amounts of nitrogen (8.8%) and energy...

Abstract

Temperature is one of the most important physical factors influencing fish growth. Under optimal temperatures, food energy partitioned into fish growth can be maximized. However, when a marine carnivorous species is cultured in an environment where temperature falls outside the optimal range of a...
