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 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

This study evaluated the potential of using poultry by-product meal (PBM) to replace fish meal in diets for Japanese sea bass, Lateolabrax japonicus. Fish (initial body weight 8.5 g fish-1) were fed six isoproteic and isoenergetic diets in which fish meal level was reduced from 400 g kg-1 (diet C)...

Abstract

The apparent digestibility coefficients (ADC) of six practical protein ingredients, Chilean fish meal (FM), soy protein concentrate (SPC), poultry by-product meal (PBM), corn gluten meal (CGM), meat and bone meal (MBM), and hydrolyzed feather meal (HFM), were determined for juvenile white shrimp (...

Abstract

Arctic Char Salvelinus alpinus is a highly desirable species for aquaculture due to their fast growth, culture conditions, and reputation as a sustainably produced fish as a result of closed containment culture. A study was conducted to evaluate performance and highly unsaturated fatty acid...

Abstract

Numerous alternative proteins have been assessed and reported as adequate for fish meal (FM) sparing; however, few studies have directly compared the value of alternative proteins in side-by-side comparisons. Previous research also suggests that changes in dietary protein source may affect fillet...

Abstract

In aquaculture, replacing dietary fishmeal with other protein sources is challenging. In order to select substitute sources, it is necessary to determine the apparent digestibility coefficients, many of which have not been well characterized for fish species. We investigated the apparent...

Abstract

Apparent digestibility coefficients (ADCs) of processed agro-food by-products were assessed in European seabass (Dicentrarchus labrax). Each experimental diet was obtained by replacing 300 g/kg of a commercial-based diet used as reference (REF) with a test ingredient: wheat germ (GERM), okara meal...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to compare the hydrolysates of fish meal (FM) and poultry by-product meal (PBM) upon in vitro simulation of the digestion process of the Pacific Bluefin tuna, Thunnus orientalis. Two grams of crude protein from each meal were hydrolyzed in triplicate for 60 min using ...

Abstract

The tench (Tinca tinca L., 1758) is a promising freshwater species in which numerous studies have been conducted recently to develop a dedicated feed for optimized growth rate. The aim of this study was to assess the stability of seven candidate reference genes, including 18S ribosomal RNA (18S...
