Abstract

A series of studies were designed to examine the degree of variability in the digestibility of protein and energy from lupin (Lupinus angustifolius) kernel meals when fed to rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) and the potential implications of this variability. The digestibility of protein and...

Abstract

Introduction of formulated diet particles for larval culture will simplify hatchery protocols and promote consistent survival, while decreasing total operating costs. The blue swimmer crab, Portunus pelagicus, is a commercially important species with substantial aquaculture potentials in the...

Abstract

A new method of soybean meal processing has been developed, which may simplify the process of biodiesel production. This method, 'in situ transesterification', eliminates hexane extraction to remove the oil, combining the extraction and transesterification steps so as to synthesize biodiesel via a...

Abstract

Apparent amino acid availability coefficients and protein digestibility of four animal products [fish meal (FM), meat and bone meal (MBM), poultry by-product and feather meal] and four plant protein-rich products [soyabean meal (SBM), cottonseed meal-28, cottonseed meal-38 and corn gluten meal...

Abstract

Commercial farming of carnivorous fish demands the reduction of environmental impact of feeds; that requires minimal use of dietary animal protein. This study investigated the digestibility of diets formulated exclusively out of plant protein, added feed attractants, by the carnivore largemouth...

Abstract

The apparent digestibility coefficients (ADCs) of amino acids (AA), protein, and energy in six feed ingredients (Brazilian fish meal, soyabean meal, corn gluten meal, alcoholic yeast, corn, and wheat bran) we evaluated for pacu juveniles. In general, all ingredients showed high digestibility values ...

Abstract

Apparent digestibility of dry matter and energy, and availability of amino acids from blood meal (BM), fish meal (FM), meat and bone meal (MBM), poultry by-product meal (PBM), soybean meal (SBM), corn, wheat and yellow grease (YG) were determined for bluegill Lepomis macrochirus (mean weight, 57...

Abstract

A feeding experiment was conducted to examine the potential use of defatted soybean meal (SBM) and freeze-dried meat of blue mussel (BM) as partial replacement of fish meal in the diet of tiger puffer. Eight experimental diets were formulated, in which 0, 20, 40 and 60% fish meal protein were...

Abstract

Rainbow trout were fed either a diet containing fishmeal (FM) as the crude protein source or a diet containing 50% replacement with soybean meal (SBM) for 16 weeks. An enteritis-like effect was observed in the SBM group; villi, enterocytes and microvilli were noticeably damaged compared with the FM ...

Abstract

The excellence of its flesh and fast growth makes the dourado, Salminus brasiliensis, a carnivorous fish native to the Prata basin, a potential candidate for intensive fish farming. This study evaluated the apparent digestibility coefficients (ADC) of energy and nutrients of animal and plant ...
