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...

Abstract

In this study, we evaluated different dietary fishmeal and protein levels on growth performance, intestinal structure and intestinal microbial community of juvenile channel catfish, Ictalurus punctatus. A total of 1800 fish distributed into 36 tanks were fed with nine different diets containing...

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

Nutritional studies for aquarium fishes like the neon tetra Paracheirodon innesi are sparse in comparison with those for food fish. To determine the optimum dietary protein level and source for growth of neon tetras, diets were formulated to contain 25, 35, 45, and 55% dietary protein from either...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine the impact of diets with different plant protein ingredients on proximate composition, tissue metabolites and tissue fatty acid composition, as well as hepatic and intestinal histological modifications in Senegalese sole (Solea senegalensis). Fish (21.5±2.8 g...

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...

Abstract

Given its complex metamorphosis and digestive system ontogeny, Senegalese sole larvae capacity to digest and utilize dietary protein is likely to change throughout development. In the present study, we hypothesized that the manipulation of dietary protein complexity may affect Senegalese sole...

Abstract

Cobia (8.4±0.1 g body weight) were fed to satiation with three test diets of high plant protein-based ingredients and different lysine to arginine ratios, and one commercial diet (currently used for cobia rearing in Vietnam as a control for growth) for 6 weeks. The test diets contained 206 g marine ...

Abstract

In this study the performance of juvenile turbot (Psetta maxima L.) fed varying dietary phytase (Natuphos® 5000 G, BASF SE) supplementation levels was determined in a 56 day lasting growth trial, followed by a digestibility trial. One control diet (C) based on fish meal and three test diets based...

Abstract

Two feeding trials were conducted in a closed system with Nile tilapia Oreochromis niloticus fry (mean weight, 0.10 g; experiment 1) and juveniles (mean weight, 2.84 g; experiment 2) to examine the effects of total replacement of fish meal (FM), with and without supplementation of DL-methionine...
