Abstract

In the marine environment, organisms from lower trophic levels seem as a good alternative to the traditional meal and oil sources. In the present study, meals were produced from Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba), Arctic krill (Thysanoessa inermis) and the Arctic amphipod Themisto libellula. Diets ...

Abstract

Three experimental diets in which fish meal was partially (50 and 75%, named PP50 and PP75 diets, respectively) or totally replaced (PP100 diet) by plant protein sources were fed to rainbow trout and gilthead sea bream. We studied the effects of these diets on digestive enzymes in comparison to...

Abstract

Trout diet formulations have changed considerably in the last ten years and modern diets reflect changing ingredient markets, feed processing technologies, and faster growing strains of trout. In contrast, most of the vitamin requirements for rainbow trout were determined more than 30 years ago and ...

Abstract

Nutritional studies for aquarium fishes like the neon tetra Paracheirodon innesi are sparse in comparison with those for food fish. To determine the optimum dietary protein level and source for growth of neon tetras, diets were formulated to contain 25, 35, 45, and 55% dietary protein from either...

Abstract

The basic nutrient requirements for channel catfish, Ictalurus punctatus, are well known, with anecdotal evidence suggesting that catfish fry grow faster and have better survival when fed an animal protein diet. However, the ability to grow channel catfish as small as 11 g on all plant diets and a...

Abstract

To be able to study nutrient requirement and utilization in any species, a diet supporting normal feed intake and growth equally well as a traditional fish meal-based diet is needed. Additionally the formulation of the diet should allow low levels of the nutrient under study. When studying the...

Abstract

The effects of partial (75%; diet PP75) and total (100%; diet PP100) replacement of fish meal by plant protein sources on the intestinal nutrient absorption of gilthead sea bream and rainbow trout were examined over a 12-week growth trial. The diets comprised a mixture of plant ingredients (corn...

Abstract

Apparent digestibility coefficients (ADCs) of amino acids, crude protein, gross energy, and dry matter of canola meal, corn gluten feed, fish offal meal, shrimp and fish offal meal, poultry by-product meal, and hydrolyzed feather meal were determined for channel catfish, Ictalurus punctatus....

Abstract

Two trials were conducted to develop a semipurified test diet for determining indispensable amino acid (IAA) requirements for Florida pompano Trachinotus carolinus. The objective of the first trial was to evaluate casein and corn gluten meal as principal intact protein sources, and the ability of...

Abstract

In this study, three microdiets were tested on weaning of Florida pompano larvae: Otohime, Gemma and a reference diet LR803. The experimental system was stocked with 11-day-old larvae, which were co-fed micro-diets and live food from 11 dph to 17 dph then micro-diets only until 28 dph. Survival...
