Abstract

An in vitro model designed to assess protein bioavailability in diets for growing Octopus was developed. The model required a previous assessment of some functional features of protein digestion in this species like the main producing organs, optimum pH for activity and total production per g...

Abstract

Juvenile rainbow trout were fed to visual satiation for 12 weeks with four diets containing fishmeal as the primary protein source (FM diet) or FM substituted with graded levels of a mix of plant proteins to replace 50% (PP50 diet), 75% (PP75) or 100% (PP100) of fishmeal with addition of...

Abstract

Toxic cyanobacterial blooms, which produce cyclic heptapeptide toxins known as microcystins, are worldwide environmental problems. On the other hand, the cyanobacteria protein (30-50%) has been recommended as substitute protein for aquaculture. The present laboratory study verified the feasibility...

Abstract

The meagre (Argyrosomus regius) is a carnivorous fish which requires diets with higher protein content, causing an increment in diets cost. A way to diminish this cost is to use vegetable meals like soybean meal (SB). So the aim of this trial was to determine the optimum inclusion level of defatted ...

AbstractFull Text

The search for alternative foods that can replace fishmeal in commercial diets formulation is constant, especially those that have a good amino acid profile and digestibility coefficient. The worm meal seems to be a good protein source in substitution, even partial, of fish meal in diets for ...

Abstract

This study was conducted to evaluate the effects of dietary amino acids (AA) patterns on growth, survival, activities of digestive enzymes and aminotransferases and target of rapamycin (TOR) gene expression of large yellow croaker (Larimichthys crocea) larvae. The control diet was produced using...

Abstract

Feed palatability in carnivorous aquaculture species, shrimps in particular, has been crucially related to the presence of compounds acting as attractants that are commonly associated with the prey components under wild conditions. Thus a nutritionally adequate and organoleptically-pleasing diet is ...

Abstract

The effects of partial (75%; diet PP75) and total (100%; diet PP100) replacement of fish meal by plant protein sources on the intestinal nutrient absorption of gilthead sea bream and rainbow trout were examined over a 12-week growth trial. The diets comprised a mixture of plant ingredients (corn...
