AbstractFull Text

The aim of this study was to determine the possibility of using duckweed in sustainable livestock production and aquaculture. Duckweed is a small plant which grows in water and is exploited in biotechnology, dietetics, phytotherapy, and ecotoxicology. It is also used for biological waste-water...

Abstract

Although aquaculture is among the fastest growing food production sectors in the world, one of the bottlenecks for the continuity of its expansion is the dependence of animal protein on commercial feed formulations. Vegetable proteins are an alternative due to the low cost and high availability....

AbstractFull Text

The current experiment was randomly designed in a 2×2 factorial design. Two dietary protein sources were utilized; fish meal and soybean meal; with betaine incorporation to both of them. This study aimed to determine the impact of incorporation of betaine into soybean meal-based (SBM) diets through ...

Abstract

A 63-day growth trial was conducted with northern snakehead Channa argus to evaluate how rapidly its growth performance and how reproducibly its gut microbiota respond to different dietary protein sources. Four diets were formulated with different levels of soybean meal as a replacement for...

Abstract

A feeding experiment was conducted to develop non-fish meal and non-fish oil diet for red seabream by using plant protein source and Schizochytrium meal which is rich in 22:6n-3 (DHA). Three iso-nitrogenous and iso-lipidic experimental diets were prepared (CP 41.2%±0.4%, CL 16.4%±1%). Control diet...

Abstract

In order to maximize the output, minimize the waste produced by the fish, and develop nutritionally adequate diets, the digestibility and nutritional value of feed ingredients were evaluated. The objective of this study was to determine apparent digestibility coefficients (ADCs) of dry matter,...

Abstract

The present study investigated the replacement of soybean meal with combinations of two or three alternative protein sources in diets for pond-raised hybrid catfish, ♂ Ictalurus punctatus × ♀ Ictalurus furcatus. Alternative protein sources evaluated included cottonseed meal, distillers dried grains ...

Abstract

Besides fishmeal, soybean protein is the most common protein source in aquafeed. However, the sustainability of soybean production is criticized. Due to the rapid development of aquaculture, the increasing demand for high value feed proteins has initiated research into alternative and more...
