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

Common carp fry, mean body weight 50 mg, were stocked into 36 tanks at 40/tank and fed on test diets in triplicate 4 times daily at 3-h intervals for 5 weeks. Isonitrogenous test diets (40% protein) contained different levels of mustard, sesame, linseed, copra and groundnut oilseed cakes and...

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...

Abstract

An 80-day feeding experiment on L. rohita fingerlings (7.51 g) was conducted in the laboratory involving alternate feeding of plant and animal protein-based diets with low and high levels of proteins, respectively. Fingerlings were stocked at 10/tank with 3 replicates for each feeding schedule. ...

Abstract

The use of the microalga, S. maxima, as a protein source in diets for O. mossambicus fry (279 mg, 20-30 days old), was evaluated. Animal protein was replaced with algal protein at ratios of 20, 40, 60, 80 and 100%, and the substitution effect was compared with a control diet in which fish meal was...

Abstract

Alternative dietary protein sources for use in the diets of farmed Oreochromis are reviewed, with emphasis on fishery byproducts, terrestrial animal byproducts, oilseed plants, aquatic plants, single cell proteins, grain legumes, plant protein concentrates and cereal byproducts. The nutritive...

Abstract

Continued growth and intensification of aquaculture production depends upon the development of sustainable protein sources to replace fish meal in aquafeeds. This document reviews various plant feedstuffs, which currently are or potentially may be incorporated into aquafeeds to support the...

Abstract

This issue is comprised of 8 papers focusing on protein sources in feeds for livestock and domestic animals. An overview of the sources of protein for animal feed in France is given, highlighting the role of soyabean meal and imported sunflower. The protein supply at the European level is also...

Abstract

During the last 30 years global aquaculture has expanded continuously to meet the increasing demand of fish for human consumption, which can no longer be met by fisheries captures. One consequence is an increasing demand of raw materials for aquafeeds, while the volume of fish meal (FM), the...

Abstract

Senegalese sole farming is gaining "momentum" and the development of an optimised diet is pivotal to ensure its competitive and sustainable commercial culture. The lower fish performance often observed when replacing large amounts of dietary fishmeal by plant protein sources may result from an...
