Abstract

China has dominated global aquaculture production for more than two decades. Aquaculture production in China increased from 24.6 million metric tons (mmt) in 2000 to 47.5 mmt in 2014, an increment of 93.1%. Along with the fast-growing aquaculture industry, aquafeed production in China increased...

Abstract

Protein derived from fishmeal is the most expensive ingredient in fish feeds. Any reduction and replacement of this ingredient by a less expensive protein source which will produce the same growth performances will contribute significantly to the reduction of fish production cost. Protein-rich U....

Abstract

This study assessed the effects of the green seaweed Cladophora spp. as a protein source to substitute fishmeal protein in practical diets for postlarval tiger shrimp (Penaeus monodon). A control diet without containing seaweed meal was compared with five experimental diets in which fishmeal...

Abstract

The rapid expansion of the aquaculture industry with carnivorous fish such as salmon has been accompanied by an equally rapid development in alternative feed ingredients. This has outpaced the ability of prevailing authentication method to trace the diet and origins of salmon products at the retail ...

Abstract

Background: In order to ensure sustainability of aquaculture production of carnivourous fish species such as the gilthead seabream (Sparus aurata, L.), the impact of the inclusion of alternative protein sources to fishmeal, including plants, has been assessed. With the aim of evaluating long-term...

Abstract

Fish meal is currently the major protein source for commercial aquaculture feed. Due to its unstable supply and increasing price, fish meal is becoming more expensive and its availability is expected to face significant challenges in the near future. Therefore, feasible alternatives to fish meal...

Abstract

Senegalese sole farming is gaining "momentum" and the development of an optimised diet is pivotal to ensure its competitive and sustainable commercial culture. The lower fish performance often observed when replacing large amounts of dietary fishmeal by plant protein sources may result from an...

AbstractFull Text

A 16-week feeding trial was conducted to determine the potential use of the aquatic weed, Ceratophyllum sp., meal to replace soybean cake meal (SCM) as a protein source in diets for grow-out of rabbitfish, Siganus guttatus. Four iso-nitrogenous diets were formulated to contain different levels of ...

Abstract

Population growth combined with increasingly limited resources of arable land and fresh water has resulted in a need for alternative protein sources. Macroalgae (seaweed) and microalgae are examples of under-exploited "crops". Algae do not compete with traditional food crops for space and...
