Abstract

Copra, groundnut, soya, sunflower, rapeseed and cottonseed oilmeals and leucaena meal were tested individually in different proportions of the diet and compared with a control diet (30% protein) with fishmeal for male Sarotherodon mossambicus [Tilapia mossambica] in a series of 3 trials. Despite...

Abstract

Plant protein sources were evaluated in 32% protein grow-out feeds for channel catfish (Ictalurus punctatus), 180 g, stocked at 24 700 fish/ha in 0.04-ha earthen ponds. Each of 8 practical feeds was assigned for 5 replicate ponds. Fish were fed to satiation once daily for 170 days. Specifically,...

Abstract

Methods to assess protein digestibility of fish feeds are reviewed under the following headings: biological value of feed proteins; digestibility of alternative proteins by salmonids; in vitro methods of measuring protein digestibility; protein digestion in fish; in vitro digestibility of feed...

Abstract

A 90-day growth trial was conducted with common carp (Cyprinus carpio), 0.53 g, to test mixed feeding with a plant-based low-protein diet (16% CP, diet A), and 2 diets based on fish meal, containing 26 and 31% CP (diets B and C). 3 mixed feeding schedules were designed: 1A/2B, 2A/2B and 2A/2C where ...

Abstract

For periods of 4 days' adaptation and 4-16 days' measuring, sea bream (Pagrus aurata) were given diets including 50% of a series of raw materials to estimate their apparent digestibility under controlled conditions. For protein digestibility, a standard in vitro method was also included for...

Abstract

The development of feeds formulated with vegetable sources (flax, maize, rapeseed meal, lupin, wheat, barley, field peas) produced in the Northern Great Plains, USA, is discussed. The nutritional value of these feeds and their effect on growth, health and quality of tilapia are also examined....

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 ...

Abstract

Palm kernel and soyabean cake were used to substitute a fish meal-based standard diet at 90, 70, 50, 30 or 0% inclusion levels, and fed to 18 groups of O. niloticus (10/tank) in two 18-week trials. Initial weights of fish used were 7.2-7.4 and 4.5-6.4 g, respectively. Growth performance and feed...

Abstract

600, 2-month-old African sharptooth catfish, body weight 30-45 g, were distributed into 24, 500-litre tanks. Fish meal in diets was replaced with tomato waste, extracted or extruded soyabean meal, brewers' yeast or mixed with all ingredients, in isonitrogenous (38% protein) diets and fed to the...

Abstract

Four natural ingredient diets similar in nutrient composition (42-44% CP, protein to energy ratio = 115-120 mg/kcal) but differing in protein source, were fed to hatchery-reared catfish in 2 feeding trials. Diets 1 and 2 had higher fish meal content but lower meat and bone meal than the other...
