Abstract

The effects of different dietary inclusion levels (0, 5 and 10%) of IMTA-cultivated Gracilaria vermiculophylla on rainbow trout growth performance and flesh quality traits were evaluated. Flesh chemical composition (moisture, protein, lipid, vitamin E and iodine contents), sensory attributes and...

AbstractFull Text

A limiting factor in the production of aquatic organisms refers to the formulation of low cost diets with protein sources that meet the nutritional requirements of animals. Therefore, this study aimed to evaluate the growth performance of reared caged pacu (Piaractus mesopotamicus) in the Itaipu...

Abstract

A 12-week feeding trial was carried out to evaluate the effects of different levels of dietary choline on growth rate, body composition and total liver lipid of juvenile Siberian sturgeon, Acipenser baerii. A semi-purified basal diet was formulated using vitamin-free casein and wheat gluten as a ...

Abstract

Temperature is one of the most important physical factors influencing fish growth. Under optimal temperatures, food energy partitioned into fish growth can be maximized. However, when a marine carnivorous species is cultured in an environment where temperature falls outside the optimal range of a...

Abstract

A feeding trial was conducted to investigate the optimal dietary L-methionine level for the large yellow croaker (Pseudosciaena crocea R.) larvae from 12 to 42 days after hatching (DAH 12-42). We designed six groups of microdiets (MDs), which contains equal amounts of nitrogen (8.8%) and energy...
