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

Lysine (Lys) is an indispensable amino acid (AA) and generally the first limiting AA in vegetable protein sources in fish feeds. Inadequate dietary Lys availability may limit protein synthesis, accretion and growth of fish. This experiment aimed to further elucidate the role of Lys imbalance on...

Abstract

Senegalese sole farming is gaining "momentum" and the development of an optimised diet is pivotal to ensure its competitive and sustainable commercial culture. The lower fish performance often observed when replacing large amounts of dietary fishmeal by plant protein sources may result from an...

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

A trial was carried out with gilthead seabream juveniles, aiming to investigate the ability of an enhanced dietary formulation (diet Winter Feed, WF, containing a higher proportion of marine-derived protein sources and supplemented in phospholipids, vitamin C, vitamin E and taurine) to assist fish...

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,...

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

The objective of this work was to evaluate the effect of a dietary amino acid imbalance, originating from the use of a soya protein concentrate (SPC) as the major protein source, on the growth performance and amino acid metabolism of Senegalese sole (Solea senegalensis) postlarvae. Senegalese sole...

Abstract

A 12-week performance trial was undertaken to evaluate the effects of a concomitant replacement of fishmeal and fish oil in a practical diet for gilthead seabream with a complementary mixture of vegetable proteins (soy, peas, corn and wheat) and oils (soybean, rapeseed), in terms of growth...
