AbstractFull Text

Four diets were formulated to include different sources of animal by-products as a protein source in Nile tilapia (5.79±0.05 g) diets. The first group fed diet containing fish meal (T1), while the 2nd, 3rd and 4th groups fed a mixture of poultry by-product meal (PBM), animal by-product meal (ABM)...

Abstract

Spotted wolffish (Anarhichas minor) is a promising new candidate for cold-water fish farming, but knowledge is needed about its physiology and its capacity to utilize alternative feed ingredients. The aim of the study was to investigate fast muscle growth dynamics, changes in chemical composition...

Abstract

The perception of key players in the fish farming sector towards the use of insects is important for their acceptance to adopt insects as an alternative protein source to the expensive fish meal. Perception was established through a cross-sectional study of 208 fish farmers and 71 fish feed traders ...

Abstract

Limited availability of sustainable feed ingredients is a serious concern in salmon aquaculture. Insects may become an important, sustainable resource for expanding the raw material repertoire. Herein, we present data from an 8-week feeding trial with pre-smolt Atlantic salmon (initial body weight...

Abstract

Protein derived from fishmeal is the most expensive ingredient in fish feeds. Any reduction and replacement of this ingredient by a less expensive protein source which will produce the same growth performances will contribute significantly to the reduction of fish production cost. Protein-rich U....

Abstract

In this study, a feeding trial was conducted to evaluate the effects of adding different levels of sodium butyrate in high plant protein diets on growth performance, nutrient apparent digestibility coefficients and liver antioxidant function of juvenile turbot (Scophthalmus maximus L.), and to...

Abstract

A 70-day growth trail was conducted to investigate the effects of inclusion of high levels of meat and bone meal (MBM) and protein concentrate (PC) on growth, digestibility and economic performances of climbing perch, Anabas testudineus. Four isonitrogenous diets were formulated by lowering the...

Abstract

The fast growth of the aquaculture sector worldwide increases the demand for aquafeeds. Since the production of conventional protein sources like fish meal is stagnating due to fully exploited fish stocks, far-reaching sustainable adaptions of production techniques as well as new alternative ...

Abstract

The objective of the work was to evaluate the effect on the nutrient content of replacing fish meal (FM) with blood meal (BM) in fish supplement. Three isonitrogenous diets (35% crude protein) were formulated using FM as the main source of animal protein (BM0); 50% replacement of FM with blood meal ...
