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

Increasing economical concerns regarding the use of fish meal in diets for shrimp have led to the development of replacement strategies where plant protein sources have received ample attention. Corn gluten meal, being one of the available plant protein sources, which is obtained as a by-product...

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

A feeding trial was conducted to evaluate the potential of a compound protein source (CPS) as a replacement of fish meal (FM) in diets for large yellow croaker, Pseudosciaena crocea R. The CPS was made of soybean meal, meat and bone meal, peanut meal, and rapeseed meal (4:3:2:1 in weight) by adding ...

Abstract

The effects of feed intake level on energy and nitrogen partitioning were studied in juvenile Atlantic cod (250 g) fed two fish meal based diets differing in protein and lipid content (54:31 and 65:16) at 10°C. Replicate groups of cod were feed deprived for 32 days or fed one of the two diets at...

Abstract

Juvenile gilthead sea bream (initial body weight ca. 100 g) were reared in an indoor flow through marine water system for 1 year. Fish were fed two isoenergetic [19.2 kJ g-1 dry matter (DM)] and isoproteic (426 g kg-1 DM) diets either based on fish meal (diet FM) or on a mixture of plant protein...

Abstract

This experiment was conducted to evaluate the effects of dietary lipid sources on the growth performance and fatty acid (FA) composition of juvenile shrimp, Litopenaeus vannamei. Six isoenergetic and isonitrogenous semi-purified diets containing casein, solvent-extracted soybean meal and gelatin as ...

Abstract

An eight-week feeding trial was conducted to examine the possibility of replacing fish meal with poultry by-product meal (PBM) at high inclusion levels in the diets of the humpback grouper, Cromileptes altivelis, a carnivorous marine tropical fish. Six isolipidic (12%) and isoproteic (50%),...

Abstract

An eight week feeding trial was conducted to examine the impacts of organically certifiable alternate protein sources on growth, feed efficiency, biological indices, fillet proximate composition and fillet quality in juvenile cobia. Diets were formulated to be isonitrogenous and isocaloric. The...

Abstract

To evaluate isolated pea protein as feed ingredient for tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) juveniles, triplicate groups were fed with four isonitrogenous [crude protein: 421.1-427.5 g kg-1 in dry matter (d.m.)] and isoenergetic (gross energy: 20.46-21.06 MJ kg-1 d.m.) diets with varying protein...
