Abstract

In the last decade substantial innovation in feeds has led to a significant reduction in fishmeal inclusion rates in feed for aquaculture. Nevertheless, to maintain the current growth of aquaculture, the demand of nutrient will increase at the same rate. So finding a sustainable alternative protein ...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to evaluate the best level of substitution of fish meal (FM) by soybean meal (SBM), as protein source in practical diets for juveniles of Macrobrachium amazonicum. Juveniles, with initial mean weight of 0.16±0.66 g, were stocked at a density equivalent to 150 juveniles m-2 ...

Abstract

The evaluation of alternative protein sources in aquafeeds is a priority in the aquaculture industry. Moreover, carbon sources in biofloc systems can directly affects the nutritional composition of flocs and consequently improve the shrimp growth. In this context, the aim of the present study was...

Abstract

The cost of compound feed is a constraint in intensive fish and poultry farming, contributing 60-80% of the total production costs, 70% of which is due to fish and soy meal used as protein source. This review presents the extent to which insects have been utilised as an alternative protein source...

Abstract

Solvent extracted soybean meal (SBM) is generated using different varieties of soybeans grown under a range of conditions and then processed at different crushing plants. Due to its competitive cost and availability, it is a popular plant-based protein source for shrimp feed formulations. However,...

Abstract

In finfish aquaculture, fish meal is heated during the manufacturing process, which affects the digestibility and protein absorption by fish. However, manufactured fishmeal that is not heated does not undergo thermal denaturation. Few studies have investigated the effects of non-heated animal ...

AbstractFull Text

The larvae of the black soldier fly, Hermetia illucens, contain high amounts of protein and fat, and so are a good feed source. However, this high fat content hinders the production of such feed. The excess fat must thus be removed to enable the larvae to be used as a feedstock e.g., for ...
