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 surging demand for conventional fish feed ingredients resulted in rising cost of fish feed, which is considered as a limiting factor for the expansion of aquaculture industry. There is need of alternative protein sources, especially those are by-products, and not suitable for human consumption...

AbstractFull Text

The golden apple snail (GAS) was introduced in the Philippines in 1980s as food for human and farm animals and later turned into a destructive invasive species especially in rice fields. The feasibility of the golden apple snail as an alternative protein source has been tested for tilapia, shrimp...

Abstract

The cost of compound feed is a constraint in intensive fish and poultry farming, contributing 60-80% of the total production costs, 70% of which is due to fish and soy meal used as protein source. This review presents the extent to which insects have been utilised as an alternative protein source...

Abstract

In the first experiment the effects of rotifer enrichment and feeding frequency on larval performance of red porgy Pagrus pagrus were studied. Larvae (2 days post-hatching=2 dph) were fed s-type rotifers (∼20 rotifers/mL) enriched with one of the four different treatment media: Rotifer Diet...

AbstractFull Text

A 16-week feeding trial was conducted to determine the potential use of the aquatic weed, Ceratophyllum sp., meal to replace soybean cake meal (SCM) as a protein source in diets for grow-out of rabbitfish, Siganus guttatus. Four iso-nitrogenous diets were formulated to contain different levels of ...
