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 ...

AbstractFull Text

The utilization of corn gluten meal (CGM) was evaluated as a partial fish meal (FM) substitute in practical diets for gilthead sea bream juveniles. Four test diets (isonitrogenous and isocaloric, 52% protein and 10% lipid, 19 kJ/g diet) containing increasing levels of CGM were formulated to replace ...

Abstract

This study was carried out to understand the possible effects of supplemental dietary l-carnitine on the growth, body composition, blood traits and carnitine status in silver perch. A 2×2×2 factorial design was utilized to formulate the experimental diets, which contained plant protein sources to...

Abstract

A two month feeding trial was conducted in silvery-black porgy (Sparidentex hasta) juveniles (initial mean body weight, 16.7 g) to determine the amount of soy products (SP) that could replace fishmeal (FM) in formulated diets without reducing growth performance. Six isoproteic (ca. 50%) and...
