Abstract

Aquaculture, an important source for animal protein utilizes a lot of fishmeal regarded as the best protein source in fish feeds. For making feeds, aquaculture sector alone consumed the equivalent of about 23.8 million metric tons (mmt) of fish or 87% of nonfood fish by 2006. By 2011, the non-food...

Abstract

Four animal protein sources were cultured, processed and analysed for their basic nutritive values in comparison with the conventional clupeid fish meal. The clupeid fish meal had the highest crude protein (71.64%), and unskinned-dried tadpole meal had the lowest value (43.50%). A significant...

Abstract

The production of fish meal in Nigeria from the wild sources has for some period now been dwindling and when available are very expensive, because most of the fish meal used in fish feed formulation are imported. Hence viable alternatives have to be found for the sustainability of the aquaculture...

Abstract

Utilization of plant protein sources in aquaculture have continued to produce more promising results towards alleviating high cost of feeding. This study examined the utilization of Leucaena leucocephala seed meal (LSM) for sustainable fish production. Six isonitrogenous; 40% crude protein diets...

Abstract

Algae are the chief primary producers in the aquatic environment. Thus, they supply proteins carbohydrates and mineral salts to the primary consumers and consequently sustain many fishes of commercial interest. Despite algae being a good source of food for some fishes, some cyanobacteria are of low ...

Abstract

Sword beans (Canavalia gladiata), jackbean (Canavalia enciformis (L)), mucuna bean (Mucuna pruriens); Mucuna cochiunensis, bambara (Voandzeia subterranea) and lima-bean (Phaseolus lunatus) were the tropical legumes studied (Nigeria). They have been used in the feed of ruminants but very scarcely...

Abstract

Palm kernel and soyabean cake were used to substitute a fish meal-based standard diet at 90, 70, 50, 30 or 0% inclusion levels, and fed to 18 groups of O. niloticus (10/tank) in two 18-week trials. Initial weights of fish used were 7.2-7.4 and 4.5-6.4 g, respectively. Growth performance and feed...

Abstract

Dry diets containing fish meal (C-FM) or dried fermented fish silage and soyabean meal blend (1:1, w/w) (C-FS) as the sole protein source, were fed to triplicate groups of juvenile C. gariepinus (10.8±0.3 g, 30 fish/tank) at 5% body weight daily, for 70 days. Catfish fed on the C-FS diet showed...
