Abstract

Due to its high protein synthesis and deposition rates, skeletal muscle protein deposition is a major determinant of fish growth. Dietary protein complexity is likely to influence protein utilization and deposition in skeletal muscle, possibly affecting fish myogenesis. In this study, three...

Abstract

Given its complex metamorphosis and digestive system ontogeny, Senegalese sole larvae capacity to digest and utilize dietary protein is likely to change throughout development. In the present study, we hypothesized that the manipulation of dietary protein complexity may affect Senegalese sole...

Abstract

The full expression of growth potential in fish larvae largely depends on an efficient protein utilization, which requires that all the indispensable amino acids (IAAs) are provided at an optimum ratio. The effect of supplementing a practical microdiet with encapsulated crystalline-AA to correct...

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

A trial was undertaken to evaluate if the concomitant replacement of fishmeal and fish oil by vegetable ingredients affects fillet quality of gilthead seabream. Fish were fed either a fishmeal/fish oil diet, a fishmeal/vegetable oil diet, a plant protein/fish oil or a plant protein/vegetable oil...

Abstract

A growth trial was conducted to test three isonitrogenous diets (59% crude protein, dry matter basis) for Senegalese sole during the ongrowing stage. A control diet (S-15) based on a commercial diet for sole (15% crude fat, 23 kJ g-1 energy) was compared with a plant protein based diet (S-15PP)...

Abstract

To be able to study nutrient requirement and utilization in any species, a diet supporting normal feed intake and growth equally well as a traditional fish meal-based diet is needed. Additionally the formulation of the diet should allow low levels of the nutrient under study. When studying the...

Abstract

A study was carried out to determine the effects of fish meal (FM) replacement by plant protein (PP) on growth, body composition and lipid metabolism of blackspot seabream fed different protein/lipid levels. Four experimental diets were formulated to contain two protein (P) and lipid (L) levels...

Abstract

A study was conducted with Senegalese sole (Solea senegalensis) to determine the apparent digestibility coefficients (ADCs) of protein, phosphorus and energy in practical feed ingredients. The digestible energy (DE) content was also evaluated. Test ingredients were anchovy fishmeal,...

Abstract

A growth trial was conducted with the aim of developing a practical, environmentally sustainable and cost-effective plant-protein-based diet for Senegalese sole juveniles without compromising growth or protein deposition. A reference diet contained fish meal as the main protein source (F45,...
