Abstract

European awareness of the potential use of insects as a protein source for animal feed has grown rapidly in recent years. Interest has been driven by heavy European reliance on crop protein imports for feed, challenges associated with the increasing global demand for animal protein, and the...

Abstract

The main applications for exogenous proteases in animal nutrition are during processing of feed ingredients and in application of exogenous proteases to feed. Exogenous proteases in feed can be an option to reduce dietary protein levels maintaining high performance. Enzymatic hydrolysis of proteins ...

Abstract

Insects provide an alternative sustainable source of protein to the growing population, as well as to the animals in the low-income world. The depletion of resources linked with the increased demand for animal products due to growing population and fast-growing economies of the low-income countries ...

Abstract

It is estimated that about 29 million tonnes of farmed fish and crustaceans (44.5 percent of the total global aquaculture production in 2007) is dependent upon the supply of external nutrient inputs provided in the form of fresh feed items, farm-made feeds or commercially manufactured feeds. Total...

AbstractFull Text

The apple snail, Pomacea canaliculata, an alien invasive species that causes considerable damage to rice culture, is now being used as an alternative protein source in small-scale aquaculture in the Philippines. Interviews with selected fish farmers rearing Japanese koi and Macrobrachium...

Abstract

Historically fishmeal has been the most important protein source in commercial aquatic feeds. However, annual growth of greater than 10% per year has put increasing pressure on fishmeal supplies. Expansion of aquaculture production in the future will be dependent on lowering the inclusion rate of...

Abstract

The continuously increasing demand for quality food for humans in parallel with the challenge of lowering the cost of producing them have been the main motives of the rapid development of the animal nutrition science. During the last century, advanced analytical methods have been developed,...

AbstractFull Text

The use of organic compost, coupled with stocking rates that can be certified under organic production guidelines, points to a novel, alternative culture system and methodology that could save the US shrimp industry. Presently, shrimp producers in the US simply cannot compete with imports due to...

Abstract

Freshwater fish species account for almost 50% of the world's aquaculture production, with tilapia, carp and catfish representing the primary culture species. These species are cultured in numerous countries as they have adaptable feeding habits, respond well to a wide variety of culture...
