Abstract

In this study, we investigated the potential utility of fish skin, usually discarded during processing, as a cost-effective protein source. We evaluated the effects on juvenile black rockfish (Sebastes schlegeli) of an 8-week feeding trial in which 0%, 5%, 10% or 20% of the casein (purified...

Abstract

Grain distillers dried yeast (GDDY) is a yeast-based protein source that is obtained from the bioethanol industry. A range of yeast-based products has been evaluated as nutritional supplements in fish diets, yet there is limited information in shrimp. Therefore, the objective of this study was to...

Abstract

The present study evaluated the effects of partial fish meal (FM) replacement by a soy protein concentrate (SPC) on growth performance and digestive enzyme activity of gilthead sea bream. Isonitrogenous (45% crude protein) and isoenergetic (23 kJ g-1 gross energy) diets with 20% (SPC20), 40%...

Abstract

Sparing marine-origin protein and lipid was investigated in diets for giant grouper (Epinephelus lanceolatus), using various combinations of soybean meal (SBM), soy protein concentrate (SPC), and an algal meal derived from Schizochytrium limacinum (ALG) to replace fish meal (FM), squid meal (SQM)...

Abstract

The effects of different levels of safflower meal (a residue of the plant oil extraction process) in diets of rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) on growth performance, nutrient digestibility and body composition were investigated. Four different diets containing 0% (Control group), 10% (Diet 1),...

Abstract

A performance trial (88 days) was undertaken to evaluate the effects of replacing fishmeal (FM) and/or fish oil (FO) in a practical formulation for juvenile meagre with a mixture of plant proteins (PP) and vegetable oils (VO), in terms of growth performance, nutrient utilization, intestinal...

Abstract

The effect of short-chain fructooligosaccharides (scFOS) incorporation on growth, feed utilization, body composition, plasmatic metabolites and selected liver enzyme activities of turbot juveniles reared at winter (15°C) and summer (20°C) temperatures was studied. Four comparable diets were...

Abstract

The effects of different dietary inclusion levels (0, 5 and 10%) of IMTA-cultivated Gracilaria vermiculophylla on rainbow trout growth performance and flesh quality traits were evaluated. Flesh chemical composition (moisture, protein, lipid, vitamin E and iodine contents), sensory attributes and...
