Abstract

Camelina meal Camelina sativa (CM) is a potential protein source in aquaculture feeds, because of its crude protein level (39%) and essential amino acids. Two feeding experiments were conducted with Atlantic cod Gadus morhua. Cod in Experiment I (19.4 g fish-1) were fed diets with 0%, 12% or 24% CM ...

Abstract

Commercial solvent extracted soybean meal (SBM) and sunflower oil cake (SFC) were fermented using the fungus, Aspergillus niger. A 45-day indoor feeding trial was carried out to assess the effect of these fermented ingredients on growth, carcass composition and haemolymph indices in Penaeus...

Abstract

Owing to an increasing world population and a rising demand in protein for food and feed, alternative protein sources are needed. In addition, existing food and protein supplies such as wild and farmed fish need to be secured. Insects and more specifically the black soldier fly (BSF; Hermetia...

Abstract

A pilot project aimed at testing roe enhancement strategies based on offshore Paracentrotus lividus cultures was conducted off the south-east coast of Italy (Apulia Region). Adult sea urchins were reared in sea cages located 700 m offshore at a depth of 12 m for 3 months. The animals were fed once...

Abstract

The culture of flathead grey mullet (Mugil cephalus) is based on wild fry captured during their migration into estuarine environments and consequently, optimizing weaning diets is of special importance for this species at this particular stage of development. Thus, authors have tested a weaning...

Abstract

The relative contribution of the dietary nitrogen supplied by fish meal and a biofloc meal to the growth of Pacific white shrimp was evaluated using stable isotope analysis. Bioflocculated material was obtained from an experimental tilapia culture system. Five formulated diets were supplied. Two of ...

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

Five isonitrogenous and isocaloric diets were fed to juvenile cobia, to assess the relative contribution of different proteins (fish meal, soybean meal, corn gluten and beer yeast) to the growth of cobia. The dietary effects on nitrogen and carbon turnover and on the isotopic diet-consumer...

Abstract

Feed security, feed quality and issues surrounding the safety of raw materials are always of interest to all livestock farmers, feed manufacturers and competent authorities. These concerns are even more important when alternative feed ingredients, new product developments and innovative feeding...

Abstract

In 2011, aquaculture accounted for almost 64 million MT of fish, crustaceans and mollusks (FAO, 2012). Fish meal has historically been the protein source of choice in aquatic feeds, but global supplies have reached a plateau making it less available and more expensive. As a consequence, the use of...
