Abstract

Apparent digestibility coefficient (ADC) values for a number of ingredients of plant or animal origin were obtained in order to formulate diets based on such values and to evaluate growth performance of the Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus, fed on 4 experimental diets in which fish meal was...

Abstract

Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) response to attractivity and taste of fourteen food ingredients, classified as animal (shrimp, fish, silkworm and meat meal, integral lyophilized egg and sugar-cane-yeast), vegetable protein (maize gluten, soyabean bran, sunflower meal and cotton bran) and...

Abstract

A growth trial was conducted to feed juveniles black-chinned tilapia Sarotherodon melanotheron isonitrogenous diets for 6 months. Three diets containing crude protein (35%) replacing 0% (FD), 50% (MD), and 100% (SD) of the fish protein with similar percentage of soya protein were formulated. Fish...

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

This study evaluated the effect of partial (50%) and complete replacement (100%) of fishmeal with a mixture of plant protein sources in 25% or 30% protein feeds on the biological performance and production of tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus. Four experimental diets containing soybean meal, alfalfa...

Abstract

We report the beneficial effects of a microbial fermentation process of plant protein sources. To reduce anti-nutritional factors, soybean meal (SM) and cottonseed meal (CM) were fermented with Aspergillus oryzae, a probiotic microorganism, and a 12-wk feeding study was conducted to evaluate the...

Abstract

To evaluate the effects of different protein sources on the growth of hybrid tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus × O. aureus), three growth trials were conducted. In the present study, four approximately isonitrogenous (24% crude protein) and isoenergetic diets were fed to triplicate groups of 9 fish...

Abstract

Two feeding trials were conducted in a closed system with Nile tilapia Oreochromis niloticus fry (mean weight, 0.10 g; experiment 1) and juveniles (mean weight, 2.84 g; experiment 2) to examine the effects of total replacement of fish meal (FM), with and without supplementation of DL-methionine...

Abstract

Two consecutive experiments were carried out to investigate the effects of phytoestrogens on sex reversal of Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) larvae. Experiment 1 investigated the effects of phytoestrogen contents of soybean meal (SBM) on sex ratio. Nile tilapia larvae (0.01 g/fish) were fed...

Abstract

Quantities of fish meal (FM) have remained level for the past several decades; however, demand has dramatically increased because of its inclusion in all animal production as a high-quality protein source. Soybean meal (SBM) is the most widely used plant-protein ingredient for replacing various...
