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

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

Mealworm meal (MM) was evaluated for its potential as a future protein source for the farmed shrimp Litopenaeus vannamei. The apparent digestibility coefficients (ADC) were determined using a reference diet and a test diet that contained 85% reference diet and 15% MM, both contained 0.5% chromic...

Abstract

Fish meal is still the main protein in feed formulations, unsustainable development and overfishing practices reduce captures since last decade. An increasing demand for high quality feed for aquaculture force the evaluation of new protein sources. Jatropha curcas meal was used in a 45 day feeding...

Abstract

Sparing marine-origin protein and lipid was investigated in diets for giant grouper (Epinephelus lanceolatus), using various combinations of soybean meal (SBM), soy protein concentrate (SPC), and an algal meal derived from Schizochytrium limacinum (ALG) to replace fish meal (FM), squid meal (SQM)...

Abstract

An 8-week growth trial was conducted to investigate the effects of dietary fish meal replacement with a vegetable mixture of soybean meal and rapeseed meal (1:1) on growth of juvenile red swamp crayfish. Nine isonitrogenous diets were designed: V0, V34, V50, V65, V73 and V81 with six levels of...

Abstract

Eight isonitrogenous (46% crude protein) and isolipidic (14% crude lipid) diets were formulated for juvenile black sea bass Centropristis striata to replace menhaden fish meal (FM) protein (59.5% CP) by three cottonseed meal (CSM) proteins: a CSM prepared from glandless seed (GCSM, 50.4% CP), a CSM ...

Abstract

A total of 630 juvenile Chinese sucker, with an average initial weight of 1.72±0.05 g, were fed seven diets for 56 days to study the effect of dietary methionine levels on growth, feed utilization, body composition and haematological parameters on juvenile Chinese sucker. Diet 1 using fish meal as...
