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 10-week feeding trial was conducted in a flow-through system to determine dietary choline requirement for juvenile gibel carp (Carassius auratus gibelio) (5.5±0.1 g). Purified basal diet was formulated using vitamin-free casein as protein source. Choline chloride was supplemented to the basal...

Abstract

Two marine algal products MAP3 and MAP8 were examined for their suitability as fishmeal protein substitutes in feeds of three prominent farmed species, through short-term feeding studies. Algal meals were tested at 5 and 10% protein replacement levels for Atlantic salmon and at 25 and 40% for...

Abstract

The objective of the study was to evaluate the effect of dietary protein source on fish growth, nutrient utilization, plasma variables and hepatic gene expression in juvenile rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss). Fishmeal (FM) and soy protein isolate (SPI) were used as the main sources of protein in ...

Abstract

This study was carried out to understand the possible effects of supplemental dietary l-carnitine on the growth, body composition, blood traits and carnitine status in silver perch. A 2×2×2 factorial design was utilized to formulate the experimental diets, which contained plant protein sources to...

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...

AbstractFull Text

The utilization of corn gluten meal (CGM) was evaluated as a partial fish meal (FM) substitute in practical diets for gilthead sea bream juveniles. Four test diets (isonitrogenous and isocaloric, 52% protein and 10% lipid, 19 kJ/g diet) containing increasing levels of CGM were formulated to replace ...

Abstract

Redclaw aquaculture has developed at a rapid pace during the past few years, yet no specialized diet for the species has been developed. The present study was designed to evaluate whether soybean-based diets containing either fishmeal (FM), poultry by-product meal (PBM), ground peameal (GPM) or...

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,...

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...
