Abstract

Fishmeal is being trusted as the most reliable protein source due to its nutritional quality in terms of attractability, palatability, digestibility, excellent nutrient profiles to fulfil the dietary requirement of aquatic species. The aquaculture sector consumes >70% of global fishmeal, though...

Abstract

Use of fish meal in aquaculture is gradually becoming unsustainable due to competition, cost and ecological challenges hence the need to expand the alternative protein sources. The earthworm, Eisenia fetida is among the non-conventional protein sources, which have been tested with relatively...

Abstract

In the last decade substantial innovation in feeds has led to a significant reduction in fishmeal inclusion rates in feed for aquaculture. Nevertheless, to maintain the current growth of aquaculture, the demand of nutrient will increase at the same rate. So finding a sustainable alternative protein ...

Abstract

Fishmeal (FM) is one of the major protein sources used in fish diets, which was obtained from wild fish catches. Due to the steady decline in fish catches accompanied with the increased demands for aquafeeds, a rapid decrease in the FM availability is much more expected. Alternative protein sources ...

Abstract

To support the expected increase in aquaculture production during the next years, a wider range of alternative ingredients to fishmeal is needed, towards contributing to an increase in production sustainability. This study aimed to test diets formulated with non-conventional feed ingredients on...

Abstract

A feeding trial was conducted to evaluate the effect of nucleotides supplementation to low-fish meal feed on growth and fatty acid composition of rainbow trout. Six isonitrogenous (42% crude protein) and isolipidic (18% crude lipid) diets were formulated containing fish meal and plant ingredients...

Abstract

Poultry by-product meal (PBM) was tested as a substitute for fish meal (FM) in the diet of juvenile Red Porgy Pagrus pagrus. Eight diets (50% crude protein, 13% crude lipid) were formulated to replace FM protein with PBM protein at 0 (control), 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, and 70%. Juvenile Red Porgy...

Abstract

Background: Aquaculture represents a solution to the future world demand for healthy protein while challenges that require urgent solutions are emerging in feed production, such as the rising costs of feed protein and massive imports. From a European perspective, a large proportion of the protein...

Abstract

Decreasing fishmeal availability and increasing prices promote the usage of plant-derived feedstuff as a substitution for fishmeal in commercial salmonid diets. However, little is known about the impact of plant-derived feedstuff on juvenile brown trout (Salmo trutta), a species that exhibits...

Abstract

An 8-week feeding trial was conducted to evaluate the effects of replacement of fish meal (FM) with poultry by-product meal (PBM) on growth performance, feed utilization and expression of genes involved in protein metabolism in juvenile black sea bream (Acanthoparus schlegelii). Six isonitrogenous...
