Abstract

As the cheap and sustainable recycled natural resources, intestinal casing meal (ICM) and yeast of monosodium glutamate (YMG) might be alternative protein sources in aquaculture diets. To determine the effects of dietary ICM and YMG on fish growth, feed utilization and gut allochthonous bacteria,...
