Abstract

The use of the microalga, S. maxima, as a protein source in diets for O. mossambicus fry (279 mg, 20-30 days old), was evaluated. Animal protein was replaced with algal protein at ratios of 20, 40, 60, 80 and 100%, and the substitution effect was compared with a control diet in which fish meal was...

Abstract

Proximate and amino acid composition of 15 local ingredients widely used in fish diets were determined. Protein content of fish meal, fish silage, blood meal, silkworm pupae meal and poultry offal meal was 56.44, 56.82, 92.94, 61.06 and 75.47%, respectively. Protein content of soyabean meal, sesame ...
