Abstract

Bovine colostrum, an alternative food of animal origin provided as partial protein source, may constitute an innovative ingredient in fish feeding. Serum insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) and cellular activity of enteric, hepatic and muscle tissues of juvenile pacu Piaractus mesopotamicus fed...

Abstract

Frog farming is an aquaculture activity that is represented little in the socioeconomic profile of Brazil, resulting in little technological investment and development in the food industry. However, the growing interest in the consumption of white and healthy meats, it has been projected as an...

AbstractFull Text

A limiting factor in the production of aquatic organisms refers to the formulation of low cost diets with protein sources that meet the nutritional requirements of animals. Therefore, this study aimed to evaluate the growth performance of reared caged pacu (Piaractus mesopotamicus) in the Itaipu...

Abstract

The apparent digestibility coefficients (ADCs) of amino acids (AA), protein, and energy in six feed ingredients (Brazilian fish meal, soyabean meal, corn gluten meal, alcoholic yeast, corn, and wheat bran) we evaluated for pacu juveniles. In general, all ingredients showed high digestibility values ...

AbstractFull Text

A total of 360 Nile tilapia larvae were distributed in 24 12l-aquaria to evaluate different protein vegetal sources for feeding (Brazil). The experiment was randomized with four treatments and six repetitions. Four protein vegetal sources were compared (soya meal (SM), canola meal (CM), sunflower...

Abstract

Apparent digestibility coefficients of dende cake (Elaeis guineensis) and coconut bran (Cocos nucifera) were estimated in P. mesopotamicus. Pacu, initial weight 180 g and 15.00 cm initial length, were stocked in 300-litre circular fibreglass tanks at 30 fish/tank. Pelleted rations consisting of 70% ...

Abstract

Fifteen groups of 200 larvae each, were fed ad libitum (from 08.00 to 20.00 h) on diets containing bovine liver and yeast (I), soyabean and yeast (II), soyabean and bovine liver (III), soyabean and maize (IV) or soyabean, meat and maize (V), for the first 3 weeks of life. The size of the dietary...
