Abstract

Aquaculture continues to be the fastest-growing food production sector with great potential to meet projected protein needs. The scientific and business communities are responding to the challenges and opportunities inherent in the growing aquaculture sector with research efforts generating novel...

Abstract

As part of a project to develop least-cost diets with low levels of fish meal, silver perch (Bidyanus bidyanus Mitchell) fingerlings (mean weight, 11.8 g) were stocked at a density of 7500 fish ha-1 into 0.1-ha earthen ponds and fed one of two diets containing 33% digestible protein, 13 MJ kg-1...

Abstract

Silver perch fingerlings (80.7±1.2 g) were stocked at a density of 15 000 fish ha-1 in earthen ponds (0.1 ha) and cultured for six months to a market size of >350 g fish-1. Fish were fed a reference diet (SP35; 27% fish meal) or one of two test diets formulated using a least-cost linear feed...

Abstract

Fish meal is currently the major protein source in fish feeds. However rising costs and decreasing availability of fish meal are placing pressure on the aquaculture industry to find suitable alternative sources of protein. The replacement of fish meal and fish oil in aquaculture diets may have a...

Abstract

The performance of silver perch fed a commercially available diet based on meat meal (38%), grain legumes (18%), oilseeds (10%), wheat millrun (20%), fishmeal (5%) and fish oil (3%) was compared with experimental diets based on alternative protein sources in two experiments. In Experiment 1, two...

Abstract

A comparative slaughter, growth assay was carried out using juvenile silver perch to evaluate different inclusion contents of groundnut meal, canola meal, meat meal and dehulled field peas. Each ingredient was combined with a nutritionally balanced basal diet composed mainly of fish meal (27%),...

Abstract

The potential for replacing fish meal with soyabean and poultry offal meals in the diet of the Australian snapper, P. aurata, was assessed. Four diets with 50% CP were formulated using fish meal, soyabean meal and poultry offal meal. The control diet had 64% fish meal, and the other diets had 30,...

Abstract

In this study, we estimated requirements for digestible protein, using intact protein sources, at one digestible energy content. Using digestibility data for silver perch (Bidyanus bidyanus Mitchell) for a large number of ingredients, we formulated a 'summit' diet to contain between 1.4 and 1.8...

Abstract

Apparent digestibility and availability coefficients for beef and bone meal, lamb and bone meal, a high protein meal from mixed species (mixed meat meal, reduced ash, no bones) and from Provine®, a high protein meal based on selected ingredients, were determined for juvenile silver perch....

Abstract

Apparent digestibility coefficients (ADCs) for dry matter, nitrogen, energy and individual amino acids for 29 commonly used feed ingredients were determined for silver perch, a native Australian freshwater species currently being cultured in Australia, Taiwan and China. ADCs were determined using...
