Abstract

Use of peanut meal as an alternative protein source in diets for Channel Catfish Ictalurus punctatus was evaluated in a 9-week study under controlled laboratory conditions. Five practical diets (28% crude protein and 6% crude lipid) were formulated to contain 0, 10, 15, 20, and 25% peanut meal as a ...

Abstract

Macrobrachium nipponense is a new aquaculture species with high market demand and is preferred as food by Asian consumers. However, its nutrient requirements and optimal dietary sources have not been fully evaluated. In the present study, we examined four common plant protein sources (soybean meal, ...

Abstract

Among aquatic organisms, nutritional requirements are historically assessed by evaluating formulated diets with changes in a single nutrient profile. These studies provide organisms with the option of regulating the total feed intake but do not enable individuals to regulate intake of specific...

Abstract

Accurate digestibility coefficients for protein, energy, and lipid are needed by feed formulators to optimize diets to meet nutritional requirements and to substitute ingredients cost-effectively. Of particular interest is protein, which accounts for the majority of shrimp feed content and expense. ...

Abstract

In 2011, aquaculture accounted for almost 64 million MT of fish, crustaceans and mollusks (FAO, 2012). Fish meal has historically been the protein source of choice in aquatic feeds, but global supplies have reached a plateau making it less available and more expensive. As a consequence, the use of...

Abstract

The rose spotted snapper is an important fishery resource with potential for farming in several Latin American countries. Since transcriptomic information was not available for this species, we generated a reference transcriptome from eleven tissues (brain, heart, gonad, liver, gut, muscle, white...

Abstract

Nutritional studies for aquarium fishes like the neon tetra Paracheirodon innesi are sparse in comparison with those for food fish. To determine the optimum dietary protein level and source for growth of neon tetras, diets were formulated to contain 25, 35, 45, and 55% dietary protein from either...

Abstract

Apparent digestibility coefficients (ADCs) of amino acids, crude protein, gross energy, and dry matter of canola meal, corn gluten feed, fish offal meal, shrimp and fish offal meal, poultry by-product meal, and hydrolyzed feather meal were determined for channel catfish, Ictalurus punctatus....

Abstract

Two trials were conducted to develop a semipurified test diet for determining indispensable amino acid (IAA) requirements for Florida pompano Trachinotus carolinus. The objective of the first trial was to evaluate casein and corn gluten meal as principal intact protein sources, and the ability of...

Abstract

Background: A current priority in aquaculture is the replacement of fish meal with alternative feedstuffs to ensure the industry's sustainability. However, most alternative protein sources are deficient in at least 1 indispensable amino acid (IAA). Therefore, there is a critical need to establish...
