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...

Abstract

The rose spotted snapper is an important fishery resource with potential for farming in several Latin American countries. Since transcriptomic information was not available for this species, we generated a reference transcriptome from eleven tissues (brain, heart, gonad, liver, gut, muscle, white...

Abstract

Two different sources of maize distiller's co-products, distiller's dried grains with solubles (DDGS) and high protein distiller's dried grains (HPDDG), were evaluated as dietary ingredients in growth experiments (77 days) with rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss). In Exp. 1, the dietary treatments...

Abstract

The efficacy of kikuyu grass and moringa leaves as protein sources in Tilapia rendalli (11.5±1 g) diets was compared. Nine diets (30% CP 20 MJ kg-1) were formulated by substituting fishmeal (FM) for kikuyu leaf meal (KLM) and moringa leaf meal (MLM). A control diet contained 10% FM and no leaf...

AbstractFull Text

Distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS), a co-product of the dry-mill ethanol industry, are the dried residue that remains after the fermentation of corn (or other grains) mash by selected yeasts and enzymes to produce ethanol and carbon dioxide. The nutrient composition of DDGS varies...

Abstract

During the last 30 years global aquaculture has expanded continuously to meet the increasing demand of fish for human consumption, which can no longer be met by fisheries captures. One consequence is an increasing demand of raw materials for aquafeeds, while the volume of fish meal (FM), the...

Abstract

Growth and health parameters were tested in juvenile New Zealand black-footed abalone, Haliotis iris, fed nine diets containing different protein sources (white and red fishmeal, blood meal, meat and bone meal, casein, soybean concentrate, wheat gluten, maize gluten, and Spirulina powder) over a...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to determine the coefficients of apparent and true digestibility of protein and amino acids of five feedstuffs (corn, wheat bran, soybean meal, corn gluten meal and fish meal) in 900 sex-reversed Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) of the Thai strain during the...

Abstract

Background: Use of plant ingredients in aquaculture feeds is impeded by high contents of antinutritional factors such as saponins, which may cause various pharmacological and biological effects. In this study, transcriptome changes were analyzed using 21k oligonucleotide microarray and qPCR in the...
