Abstract

An 8-week feeding experiment was conducted to determine the effect of dietary methionine supplementation on intestinal microflora and humoral immune of juvenile Jian carp (initial weight of 9.9±0.0 g) reared in indoor flow-through and aerated aquaria. Eight amino acid test diets (350 g kg-1 crude...

Abstract

Farmed Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua L.) is known to grow large liver, while muscle growth is preferred. Therefore, the main focus of this feeding trial was to find a strategy to achieve reduced liver size without compromising total growth, feed utilization, digestibility of nutrients or fish health....

Abstract

Two experiments were conducted in order to investigate the effect of dietary mannan oligosaccharides (MOS) on gilthead sea bream (Sparus aurata). Experiment I was designed to assess the effect of dietary MOS (0%, 0.2% and 0.4%) on fish fed diets containing fishmeal (FM) as the only protein source....

Abstract

A 12 week feeding experiment was conducted in an aquarium (80×40×40 cm) to determine the potential use of canola meal as a partial replacement of fish meal in the isonitrogenous (approximately 44% crude protein) diet for angel fish fries with an initial average weight of about 0.91 g. Diets were...

Abstract

This study was conducted to determine the potential nutritional value of heated culban (Vicia peregrina) seed at the different levels (0, 10, 20 and 30%) in diet as a plant protein source for Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus). The fish fed experimental diets grew from an initial body weight of...

Abstract

The effects of high levels of replacement of dietary fish meal (FM) by mixtures of plant protein (PP) sources on growth performance, lipid composition, protein and lipid digestibility and fatty acid profile were investigated in Atlantic salmon, Salmo salar. Experimental diets containing 35% protein ...
