Abstract

Chemical and biological evaluations were undertaken to determine nutritive value of acid fish silage (FS) as a dietary protein source in the diet of Pacific white shrimp (Litopenaeus vannamei). Proximate composition, and amino acid profile of FS were determined for chemical evaluation; amino acid...

Abstract

A feeding trial was designed to examine the potential of yellow mealworm, Tenebrio molitor, as a locally available renewable protein source in juvenile mandarin fish feed. Triplicate groups of fish (Initial mean body weight±S E.; 20.8±0.05 g) were assigned to each of four isonitrogenous (50%) and...

Abstract

Chinese mitten crab (Eriocheir sinensis) is an importantly economic species for aquaculture in China due to its desirable taste and nutrient content. In the past decades, with the continuous expansion of crab farm and artificial feed development, the increasing demand for fish meal by aquaculture...

Abstract

Camelina meal Camelina sativa (CM) is a potential protein source in aquaculture feeds, because of its crude protein level (39%) and essential amino acids. Two feeding experiments were conducted with Atlantic cod Gadus morhua. Cod in Experiment I (19.4 g fish-1) were fed diets with 0%, 12% or 24% CM ...

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

Macrobrachium nipponense is a new aquaculture species with high market demand and is preferred as food by Asian consumers. However, its nutrient requirements and optimal dietary sources have not been fully evaluated. In the present study, we examined four common plant protein sources (soybean meal, ...

Abstract

The study was conducted using channel catfish and tilapia to evaluate the production performance of these fish to increasing levels of lysine from crystalline and intact lysine supplemented in practical diets. A practical lysine deficient basal diet was developed using corn protein concentrate...

Abstract

To determine dietary lysine requirement of dusky kob, Argyrosomus japonicus, six isonitrogenous and isoenergetic diets (431 g/kg crude protein, 141 g/kg lipid and 20 kJ/kg) were formulated with graded levels of crystalline L-lysine (18-42 g/kg of the dry diet). The protein source in the basal diet...

Abstract

The introduction of plant protein (PP) sources in aquafeed is regarded as an economic and environmental-friendly strategy for aquaculture. Our objective was to investigate the effects of pure PP diets on the growth performance and to analyze their effects on flesh quality of grass carp (357.2±0.7...

Abstract

A 30-day feeding trial was conducted to evaluate the anti-nutritional factors in fish meal-based diets, and limiting amino acids in soybean meal-based diets on growth, feed efficiency ratio (FER), and nutrient apparent digestibility (AD) of Japanese flounder (Paralichthys olivaceus) at equal feed...
