Abstract

Reductions in flesh contaminant concentrations were evaluated in a 36-week feeding trial examining several dietary techniques. Atlantic salmon were fed one of seven dietary treatments for 24 weeks. These diets included a fishmeal, fish oil control diet, an industry control diet, three diets that...

Abstract

Salmon farming economics and the role of rapeseed/canola protein products in replacing traditional proteins in feeds are reviewed. Salmon farming profitability is presently marginal in North America. Feed accounts for about half of farm operating costs, and 67% of feed cost originates from protein...

Abstract

Soy and rapeseed protein concentrates (SPC and RPC) were evaluated as fish meal substitutes in gilthead sea bream, P. aurata, diets. Fish (12.1 g) were distributed (25/tank) among 21 conical fibreglass tanks. The protein concentrates were used to replace 30, 60 and 100% fish meal, and effects on ...

Abstract

This study was conducted to evaluate 3 rapeseed protein products as partial replacements of steam-dried whole herring meal (HM) in a practical diet for juvenile chinook salmon in seawater. Groups of chinook salmon, mean weight 30-40 g, held in seawater at 9.5-12°C on a natural photoperiod were fed...

Abstract

The inclusion of rapeseed protein concentrate (RPC) as a partial replacement for locally available fish meal (Chilean origin) in diets for gilthead sea bream cultured in Israel, was investigated. Fifteen groups of sea bream, 2.6 g weight, held in seawater (26°C) on a natural photoperiod were fed 1...

Abstract

Acceptable dietary concentrations of high-fibre rapeseed meal (CMHF) and low-fibre rapeseed meal (CMLF) for juvenile P. vannamei was investigated. Four groups of shrimp (0.78 g) held in running sea water (24.0-27.8°C) on a 12-h light and 12-h dark cycle were fed on 1 of 7 isonitrogenous (protein...

Abstract

The nutritive value of 16 fish meals used in the diets of Atlantic salmon reared in sea water, and the effectiveness of various in vitro and in vivo assays for the measurement of protein quality of fish meals, were studied. The commercial fish meals tested were herring, groundfish and mixed meals...

Abstract

Practical diets containing 3 sources of rapeseed protein concentrate (RPC), undephytinized, untreated control RPC (UDC), undephytinized solvent-treated control RPC (UDSC) and dephytinized RPC (DP), replacing 1/3, 2/3 or all protein from herring meal (HM) were given to rainbow trout, 4.2-4.4 g. 10...

Abstract

The digestibility of organic matter, crude protein, and gross energy, in selected animal and plant feedstuffs using post-juvenile chinook salmon held in running filtered sea water 8-12.5°C (28-31 ppt) was investigated. Faeces were collected by a modified Guelph procedure, stripping or intestinal...
