Abstract

Costs of compounded diets containing fish meal as a primary protein source can be expected to rise as fish meal prices increase in response to static supply and growing demand. Alternatives to fish meal are needed to reduce production costs in many aquaculture enterprises. Some plant proteins are...

Abstract

Alternatives to high-cost protein supplements in formulated diets for channel catfish Ictalurus punctatus are desirable to reduce feed costs and increase profits in modern channel catfish farming operations. Channel catfish feed manufacturers are focused on using plant proteins in least-cost diet...

Abstract

A feeding trial was conducted to determine the effects of dietary crude protein (CP) level and digestible energy-to-protein (DE:P) ratio on the growth performance and body composition of palmetto bass (female white bass Morone saxatilis × male striped bass M. chrysops). Ten soybean-meal-based diets ...

Abstract

An experiment was conducted to determine the long-term effects of an all-plant protein diet on production characteristics (harvest yield, dressing percentage and body composition) of catfish, I. punctatus, taken from top-harvested, multiple-stocked ponds over a 2.5-year period of continuous...

Abstract

In vitro enzyme assays are rapid, inexpensive techniques for estimating protein digestibility of feed ingredients. Three assays, the Lazo single-enzyme assay with porcine trypsin, the Hsu multi-enzyme assay with porcine trypsin, α-chymotrypsin and peptidase, and the Satterlee multi-enzyme assay...

Abstract

In a 10-week growth trial, red swamp crawfish Procambarus clarkii 26-38 mm and about 0.7 g, held in indoor tanks supplied with biofiltered water at 22°C, were fed on isoenergetic diets containing 32% crude protein (CP) supplied by soyabean oilmeal, menhaden fish meal or an isonitrogenous mixture of ...

Abstract

The alternative protein supplements that could be used to reduce the cost of formulated crayfish diets were evaluated. Red swamp crayfish (Procambarus clarkii) were held in the laboratory for 9 weeks and fed on 30% CP diets containing isonitrogenous mixtures of plant and animal protein in a 65:35...

Abstract

Juvenile red drum 7.4±0.1 g were fed on diets containing 34% crude protein with protein supplied by soyabean (soya) meal, menhaden fish meal or an isonitrogenous mixture of soyabean and fish meal calculated to provide graded levels of each protein source for 8 weeks. Dietary protein was provided...

Abstract

Hybrid striped bass (Morone saxatilis ♀ × Morone chrysops ♂) were given a reference diet or one of 9 test diets containing selected protein and energy supplements: menhaden fish meal, meat and bone meal, blood meal, soyabean meal, cottonseed meal, maize grain, wheat flour, wheat middlings and rice...
