Abstract

Apparent digestibility coefficient (ADC) values for a number of ingredients of plant or animal origin were obtained in order to formulate diets based on such values and to evaluate growth performance of the Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus, fed on 4 experimental diets in which fish meal was...

Abstract

The replacement of fish meal protein with soyabean meal (SB) or protein concentrates made from narrow-leafed lupin (LP) or field peas (PP) was investigated in extruded feeds for Atlantic salmon. Salmon (47 g) were fed for 63 days on extruded feeds containing each of the plant meals to replace 25...

Abstract

In an effort to reduce fish meal (FM) use in diets for sunshine bass, a feeding trial was conducted. Four practical floating diets were formulated to contain 40% protein, similar energy levels, and without FM. A fifth diet was formulated to contain 30% FM and served as the control diet. Ten fish...

Abstract

A 100-day experiment was carried out with 288 fingerlings of pacu, assigned to 36, 100-litre cement containers, 8 per unit, to evaluate the replacement of fish flour by soyabean meal and protein levels in the diets. During the experimental period, average water temperature was 28°C and dissolved...

Abstract

To evaluate the effects of different protein sources on the growth of hybrid tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus × O. aureus), three growth trials were conducted. In the present study, four approximately isonitrogenous (24% crude protein) and isoenergetic diets were fed to triplicate groups of 9 fish...

Abstract

This study was conducted to determine the effects of dietary protein level on growth performance, body composition, hematological indexes and hepatic non-specific immune indexes of juvenile Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus. Fish meal, soybean meal, cottonseed meal, rapeseed meal, casein and...

Abstract

Looking for replacing fish meal by cheaper and more sustainable protein sources is essential for reducing the cost of fish feeds. Soybean meal is a suitable alternative protein sources for carnivorous fish such as Persian sturgeon, Acipenser persicus. However, it contains antinutritional factors...

Abstract

Both the protection of sustainable aquaculture sources and production of low cost fish feeds via using of alternative cheaper protein sources instead of fish meal is one of the most important aims of feed producers. Soybean and soybean products are the most attractive feed stuffs in finfish feeds...

Abstract

Numerous alternative proteins have been assessed and reported as adequate for fish meal (FM) sparing; however, few studies have directly compared the value of alternative proteins in side-by-side comparisons. Previous research also suggests that changes in dietary protein source may affect fillet...

Abstract

As the cheap and sustainable recycled natural resources, intestinal casing meal (ICM) and yeast of monosodium glutamate (YMG) might be alternative protein sources in aquaculture diets. To determine the effects of dietary ICM and YMG on fish growth, feed utilization and gut allochthonous bacteria,...
