Abstract

In 3 experiments P. vannamei averaging 4.0, 9.8 and 20.8 g were monocultured in circular fibreglass tanks (2650 litres) for 30 days. Six diets having protein contents of 22, 29 and 36% and an animal:plant protein source ratio of 2:1 or 1:1 were fed ad lib. Survival ranges for small, medium and...

Abstract

The true digestibility of 5 feeds was measured in 60- and 175-g milkfish (Chanos chanos Forsskal) in fresh- and seawater. The diets contained 45% of these feedstuffs and 1.3% of chromic oxide. The intestinal dissection method was used to collect faecal material. The length of feeding time did not...

Abstract

The digestibility of feed mixtures containing fish meal or poultry meal or wheat meal or maize meal or guar gum by carp, tilapia (Oreochromis aureus × O. niloticus) and African catfish (Clarias gariepinus) was investigated. Protein from poultry sources was digested better by tilapia than by carp or ...

Abstract

Due to feed ingestion, maximal organ weight was reached in 1 h after feeding for the foregut, and 5 h after feeding for the midgut where the highest protease activity was observed in the whole digestive tract of shrimp. The proteases in the midgut gland showed two pH optima at 7.5 and 4.0, that at...

Abstract

The digestibility of organic matter, crude protein, and gross energy, in selected animal and plant feedstuffs using post-juvenile chinook salmon held in running filtered sea water 8-12.5°C (28-31 ppt) was investigated. Faeces were collected by a modified Guelph procedure, stripping or intestinal...

Abstract

Fish silage was prepared from culled whole juvenile tilapia by fermentation with Lactobacillus plantarum 50 g/kg (wet weight, w/w) at 30°C using molasses, corn flour or tapioca flour 150 g/kg (w/w) as alternative fermentation (carbohydrate) substrates. After incubation for 7 days, a desirable and...

Abstract

Apparent digestibility coefficients were estimated for fish meal, soyabean meal, rice bran, copra meal, maize and chicken viscera prior to processing into pelleted feed for tropical fresh water catfish (Mystus nemurus), using 70% reference diet and 30% test ingredient. Most ingredients were well...

Abstract

Dry diets containing varying levels of dried fermented fish silage and soyabean meal blend (FS:SBM) as replacement for 25, 50 or 75% of fish meal protein were fed to juvenile Oreochromis niloticus (8.2±0.1 g) and Clarias gariepinus (10.8±0.3 g) at 5% body weight per day for 70 days. Diets...

Abstract

Duplicate groups of Siberian sturgeon (Acipenser baeri) were given one of 3 diets differing in protein source (soyabean meal and/or vitamin-free casein, or fish meal) and in amino acid composition. Growth performance of fish, apparent digestibility coefficients, amino acid availabilities and plasma ...

Abstract

Energy utilization of feed ingredients was studied in rainbow trout, 40 g, given 2 control diets with fish meal or casein as the sole protein source (FM and CA100, respectively) and 3 diets with 40% of fish meal protein substituted by cottonseed meal (CO), lupin meal (LU) and maize gluten meal...
