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

The effect of partially replacing fish meal with different soyabean meal (SBM) products in sea bass (L. calcarifer) diets on growth and apparent protein digestibility was examined. Five isonitrogenous and isoenergetic diets were formulated to contain 100% fish meal (control diet), 21.0%...

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

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 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 ...

Abstract

A growth trial was conducted with the aim of developing a practical, environmentally sustainable and cost-effective plant-protein-based diet for Senegalese sole juveniles without compromising growth or protein deposition. A reference diet contained fish meal as the main protein source (F45,...

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

This article discusses the utilization of soyabean meal and poultry byproducts as protein sources in the formulation and production of shrimp diets that will reduce the level of fish meal in shrimp feeds, especially for Pacific white shrimps (Litopenaeus vannamei [Penaeus vannamei]). The beneficial ...
