Abstract

This experiment was conducted to study the effects of different protein sources on growth performance and feed intake regulation of pre-adult grass carp (initial body weight: 153.4±0.3 g), a herbivorous species. Two isonitrogenous, isoenergetic with essential amino acids and available phosphorus...

Abstract

The raising demand of fish for human consumption has caused a rise in fish cultivation to become a more intense activity and has increased the need for fish feed formulas for aquaculture. Tilapia are aquatic organisms with moderate protein requirements. One of the traditional ingredients used to...

Abstract

In captivity, Lateolabrax japonicas, a carnivorous fish, is given fishmeal-based diets and does not thrive when fed plant proteins. In the present study, when dietary fishmeal was totally replaced with plant protein, the fish showed anorexia in the first 2 weeks followed by the phenotypes of ...

Abstract

We compared oxygen consumption (MO2, mg/kg/h) of c. 80 g rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) in an intermittent-flow swim respirometer at 15°C. Before the tests the fish were grown in flow through tanks (15°C) with either fishmeal (FM) or corn gluten meal (CGM) based diets (c. 52% protein) for a...

Abstract

Population growth combined with increasingly limited resources of arable land and fresh water has resulted in a need for alternative protein sources. Macroalgae (seaweed) and microalgae are examples of under-exploited "crops". Algae do not compete with traditional food crops for space and...

Abstract

Among aquatic organisms, nutritional requirements are historically assessed by evaluating formulated diets with changes in a single nutrient profile. These studies provide organisms with the option of regulating the total feed intake but do not enable individuals to regulate intake of specific...

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...

Abstract

Phyllosoma of the tropical spiny rock lobster, Panulirus ornatus, possess a rudimentary digestive system with a limited capacity to digest large protein molecules. As such, to foster the successful aquaculture of this species, research into dietary requirements should place a focus on feed...

Abstract

Inclusion of plant protein sources such as soyabean meal (SBM) in aquafeeds is associated with decreased lipid digestibility, reduced bile acid levels and hypocholesterolaemia. The mechanism for these metabolic abnormalities is unknown. The present study aimed at gaining further insight into how...

Abstract

In a two-factorial experiment the effects of three rainbow trout diets were tested with respect to growth and health of fish stock, product quality and sustainability. The diets, comprising widely available and affordable raw ingredients, were iso-energetic and iso-carbohydrated, but contained...
