Abstract

Meat and bone meal (MBM) is a high-quality alternative protein source used to replace fishmeal (FM). However, the molecular mechanisms of over-substituted FM by MBM resulted in growth reduction are still not clear. The objective of the study was to evaluate the effect of FM replacement by MBM on...

Abstract

Hydroxyproline (hyp) is one of the bioactive molecules rich in fishmeal but low in plant protein sources. With increased utilization of plant proteins in aquafeeds, a better understanding is warranted for the necessity of hyp supplementation in high plant protein based diets. In the present study,...

Abstract

Poor palatability is a limiting factor for replacing fishmeal with other protein sources in aquaculture. The water-soluble molecules with low molecular weights are the major determinants of the palatability of diets. The present study was conducted to investigate the palatability of water-soluble...

Abstract

In aquaculture, replacing dietary fishmeal with other protein sources is challenging. In order to select substitute sources, it is necessary to determine the apparent digestibility coefficients, many of which have not been well characterized for fish species. We investigated the apparent...

Abstract

In this study, a feeding trial was conducted to evaluate the effects of adding different levels of sodium butyrate in high plant protein diets on growth performance, nutrient apparent digestibility coefficients and liver antioxidant function of juvenile turbot (Scophthalmus maximus L.), and to...

Abstract

An 8-week feeding trial was conducted to compare the effects of dietary protein sources on nutrient digestibility and digestive enzyme activity. Four experimental diets were formulated to contain one of the following as the sole protein source: fish meal (FM), fish protein concentrate (FPC), soy...

Abstract

The present study was conducted to investigate the effects of size-fractionated fish hydrolysates on growth, activities of digestive enzymes and aminotransferases and expression of some protein metabolism related genes in large yellow croaker (Larimichthys crocea) larvae. Fish (initial body weight...

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate dietary lipid requirement and the effect of different lipid levels on the body composition and plasma biochemical indices in cobia (Rachycentron canadum L.) at two different body sizes (initial weight: 40 g vs. 500 g). Six isonitrogenous diets were...

Abstract

An 8-week feeding trial was conducted to compare the effects of dietary protein sources on growth performance and plasma thyroid hormones levels of Japanese flounder Paralichthys olivaceus. Four isonitrogenous and isoenergetic diets were formulated to contain one of the followings as main protein...
