Abstract

Barley protein concentrate (BPC) was tested as a protein source in the diets of Atlantic salmon post-smolts. Fish were fed one of four experimental diets consisting of a fish meal/soya protein concentrate control (CT) along with two feeds supplemented with increasing levels of BPC replacing the...

Abstract

Arctic Char Salvelinus alpinus is a highly desirable species for aquaculture due to their fast growth, culture conditions, and reputation as a sustainably produced fish as a result of closed containment culture. A study was conducted to evaluate performance and highly unsaturated fatty acid...

Abstract

Juvenile rainbow trout were fed a plant-based diet supplemented with inorganic Mn added at 0, 0.5, 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, or 32 mg/kg diet for 12 wk. Whole-body Mn concentrations increased with increasing dietary levels. Rainbow trout fed 2-8 mg Mn/kg diet exhibited weight gain that was significantly...

Abstract

Recent studies with rainbow trout, Oncorhynchus mykiss, demonstrated that grain distiller's dried yeast (GDDY) at up to 12% inclusion was an effective dietary protein source when replacing fish meal. To examine the effectiveness of GDDY when replacing an increased variety of dietary protein sources...

Abstract

Limited research has examined the effects that dietary protein sources have on copper (Cu) and zinc (Zn) absorption, interactions and utilization in rainbow trout. Therefore, the objective of the first trial was to determine what effect Cu source (complex vs. inorganic) and Cu concentration (0, 5,...

Abstract

Distillers dried grains (DDG) with solubles (DDGS) is a product that has shown potential as a protein source for some fish species, but high inclusion rates of DDGS have not always been successfully achieved for Rainbow Trout Oncorhynchus mykiss. Our objective was to determine whether inclusion of...

Abstract

Taurine, which has multiple important physiological roles in teleost fish and mammals, is an amino acid not found in alternative protein sources not derived from animals. Although taurine is found in fish-meal-based feeds, its high water solubility leads to lower taurine levels in...

Abstract

Increasing price and reduced availability of fish meal have prompted feed manufacturers and aquaculture producers to search for sustainable and economical alternative protein sources. The majority of these have come from plants, and many, for example soybean meal, have been successfully...

Abstract

Nutritional studies for aquarium fishes like the neon tetra Paracheirodon innesi are sparse in comparison with those for food fish. To determine the optimum dietary protein level and source for growth of neon tetras, diets were formulated to contain 25, 35, 45, and 55% dietary protein from either...

Abstract

In the wild, fish can adapt to their diet by down regulating or eliminating biosynthetic pathways for nutrients found in abundance in their prey. Upon domestication for aquaculture these fish may now have unique dietary requirements which must be met through supplementation. To examine this...
