Abstract

Commercial farming of carnivorous fish demands the reduction of environmental impact of feeds; that requires minimal use of dietary animal protein. This study investigated the digestibility of diets formulated exclusively out of plant protein, added feed attractants, by the carnivore largemouth...

Abstract

The basic nutrient requirements for channel catfish, Ictalurus punctatus, are well known, with anecdotal evidence suggesting that catfish fry grow faster and have better survival when fed an animal protein diet. However, the ability to grow channel catfish as small as 11 g on all plant diets and a...

Abstract

A growth trial was conducted with the aim of developing a practical, environmentally sustainable and cost-effective plant-protein-based diet for Senegalese sole juveniles without compromising growth or protein deposition. A reference diet contained fish meal as the main protein source (F45,...

Abstract

An eight-week trial compared the performances of two genetic lines of Penaeus vannamei, T-line and G-line, fed with different levels and sources of dietary protein. Both lines were originated from the same founder populations but had gone through genetic selection targeting different breeding goals ...

Abstract

In this study, the effects of less-expensive protein sources replaced with soybean meal on growth performance, nutrient utilization and body composition of juvenile grass carp were investigated. For this purpose, a control diet containing 42% soybean meal was prepared. Cotton seed meal (CSM),...

Abstract

This study evaluated the effect of partial (50%) and complete replacement (100%) of fishmeal with a mixture of plant protein sources in 25% or 30% protein feeds on the biological performance and production of tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus. Four experimental diets containing soybean meal, alfalfa...

Abstract

Building a reliable database on apparent digestibility of protein sources is critical for accurate feed formulation and reduction of aquaculture wastes. Apparent digestibility coefficients (ADCs) of dry matter (DM), crude protein, crude lipid, gross energy, phosphorus and amino acids for white fish ...

Abstract

To be able to study nutrient requirement and utilization in any species, a diet supporting normal feed intake and growth equally well as a traditional fish meal-based diet is needed. Additionally the formulation of the diet should allow low levels of the nutrient under study. When studying the...

Abstract

Inclusion of plant protein sources such as soyabean meal (SBM) in aquafeeds is associated with decreased lipid digestibility, reduced bile acid levels and hypocholesterolaemia. The mechanism for these metabolic abnormalities is unknown. The present study aimed at gaining further insight into how...
