Abstract

Invertebrate meals (e.g. polychaetes and insects) present novel and sustainable high-quality nutrient sources for use in fish feed formulations. To test this innovative source, an eleven-week feeding trial was conducted evaluating the effects of replacing the fishmeal (FM) component as an example...

Abstract

An investigation was conducted to evaluate the effect of feeding selected exotic ingredients on immune responses and expression of immune related genes in mirror carp (Cyprinus carpio). Fish were fed diets for a total of 56 days. Fishmeal served as the main protein source in the control diet and...

Abstract

A nutrition trial with striped catfish (Pangasianodon hypophthalmus) juveniles was undertaken to evaluate the effect of replacing dietary fishmeal (FM) protein with corn gluten meal (CGM). A diet with FM as the main protein source was used as the control diet (FM). Five experimental diets...

Abstract

Two experiments were conducted in order to investigate the effect of dietary mannan oligosaccharides (MOS) on gilthead sea bream (Sparus aurata). Experiment I was designed to assess the effect of dietary MOS (0%, 0.2% and 0.4%) on fish fed diets containing fishmeal (FM) as the only protein source....

Abstract

Cobia culture has been rapidly gaining in popularity since the early 1990s; however, the relative success of modified commercial diets in aquaculture has delayed the need for specific research into the nutritional requirements of cobia. Recent work has determined optimum dietary protein and lipid...

Abstract

This study examined the full and partial replacement of the fish meal component of practical diets with commercial poultry byproduct meal (PBM) for juvenile African catfish, Clarias gariepinus. Six test diet formulations were based on a low temperature Norwegian fish meal (LT94) as the reference ...

Abstract

Three trials, with classical experimental designs for in vivo digestibility studies, were conducted to determine the apparent digestibility coefficient (ADC) of protein (ADCp), lipid (ADCl), energy (ADCe) and amino acids (AA) in selected animal by-products fed to European sea bass, Dicentrarchus...

Abstract

The utilization potential of some rendered animal protein derived products as partial replacement for high grade fish meal protein in practical diets for hybrid tilapia was investigated in two successive laboratory feeding trials. In trial 1, rendered animal protein sources, poultry by-product meal ...

Abstract

Rainbow trout were fed either a diet containing fishmeal (FM) as the crude protein source or a diet containing 50% replacement with soybean meal (SBM) for 16 weeks. An enteritis-like effect was observed in the SBM group; villi, enterocytes and microvilli were noticeably damaged compared with the FM ...

Abstract

The efficacy of individual and multiple amino acid supplements in diets where soyabean meal (SBM) was used as the principle protein source was examined in rainbow trout, Oncorhynchus mykiss, in a 63-day feeding trial. Isonitrogenous diets (45% CP) were formulated in which the control diet (F)...
