Abstract

Use of peanut meal as an alternative protein source in diets for Channel Catfish Ictalurus punctatus was evaluated in a 9-week study under controlled laboratory conditions. Five practical diets (28% crude protein and 6% crude lipid) were formulated to contain 0, 10, 15, 20, and 25% peanut meal as a ...

Abstract

Fermentation is considered a promising method to improve the limitedutilization of plant protein sources. In the present study, Shewanella sp. MR-7, isolated from the intestine of juvenile turbot, was used to ferment selected plant sources. We investigated the apparent digestibility coefficients...

Abstract

This study aims to describe changes in the activity of digestive enzymes of the zebra cichlid, Archocentrus nigrofasciatus, from hatching until 30 d after hatch (d.a.h.), and to evaluate the effects of feeding diets with different levels of fishmeal (FM) substitution with alternative nonanimal ...

Abstract

Besides fishmeal, soybean protein is the most common protein source in aquafeed. However, the sustainability of soybean production is criticized. Due to the rapid development of aquaculture, the increasing demand for high value feed proteins has initiated research into alternative and more...

Abstract

The intention of this study is to investigate the effects of stickwater hydrolysates on growth performance for yellow catfish (Pelteobagrus fulvidraco) fed with non-fish meal diets. Two experiments were designed. Experiment (A) was conducted to evaluate the effects of stickwater hydrolysates which...

AbstractFull Text

The golden apple snail (GAS) was introduced in the Philippines in 1980s as food for human and farm animals and later turned into a destructive invasive species especially in rice fields. The feasibility of the golden apple snail as an alternative protein source has been tested for tilapia, shrimp...

Abstract

Water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes) is a fast growing invasive aquatic plant often covers water bodies. It has been a problem worldwide. Fast-growing and rapidly expanding omnivorous tilapia is likely the suitable species for aquaculture. Since the fish farmers are adversely affected by high cost ...

Abstract

This experiment was conducted to determine the apparent digestibility coefficients (ADC) of dry matter (DM), crude protein (CP), amino acid (AA) and gross energy (GE) of Peruvian red fish meal, soybean meal, sunflower meal and corn gluten meal in juvenile turbot (Scophthalmus maximus. L) and the...
