Abstract

The cost of compound feed is a constraint in intensive fish and poultry farming, contributing 60-80% of the total production costs, 70% of which is due to fish and soy meal used as protein source. This review presents the extent to which insects have been utilised as an alternative protein source...

Abstract

Dietary hydrolysed proteins have been shown to stimulate the non-specific immunity of various finfish species, whilst the potential for immune stimulation of these feed ingredients in abalone has not been investigated. The immune-stimulating potential of two hydrolysed protein sources...

Abstract

As protein is the most expensive nutrient to supply in abalone feeds, it is necessary to evaluate the relative performance of different protein sources in formulated diets. Fourteen diets were formulated to contain 34% crude protein and 6% lipid. These were fed to juvenile abalone, Haliotis midae...

Abstract

A pH-stat multienzyme in vitro digestibility assay was investigated for its efficacy in predicting apparent protein digestibility coefficients in abalone diets. Linear regression analysis between in vitro digestibility estimates and in vivo digestibility coefficients obtained from abalone, revealed ...

Abstract

Although abalone fisheries in South Africa have existed since 1949, cultivation started by successful spawning of captured specimens in 1981 to produce spat and juveniles. Twelve abalone farms, with an estimated investment of US$12 million, have since been established on the coast of South Africa,...

Abstract

600, 2-month-old African sharptooth catfish, body weight 30-45 g, were distributed into 24, 500-litre tanks. Fish meal in diets was replaced with tomato waste, extracted or extruded soyabean meal, brewers' yeast or mixed with all ingredients, in isonitrogenous (38% protein) diets and fed to the...
