Abstract

Population growth combined with increasingly limited resources of arable land and fresh water has resulted in a need for alternative protein sources. Macroalgae (seaweed) and microalgae are examples of under-exploited "crops". Algae do not compete with traditional food crops for space and...

AbstractFull Text

Fishmeal is the primary protein source used in farmed fish feed. However, the high price of fishmeal is a major contributor to high production costs in the aquaculture industry. Insect-based diets have been recognized as cheaper alternatives to fishmeal, but the nutritional quality and impact on...

AbstractFull Text

Present study was undertaken to study Soybean meal (SBM) and Cyclop-eeze (CE) meal were used at three different protein levels (25%, 30% and 35%). The growth performance of L. vannamei was found to be best when fed with diet CE30 (7.75 gm) and least with control diet (5.90 gm). L. vannamei fed on...

Abstract

A 10-week feeding trial was conducted to determine the dietary protein requirement of juvenile triangular bream (Megalobrama terminalis). Five semi-purified diets (white fishmeal as a protein source) were formulated with five crude protein (CP) levels (26.30%, 32.94%, 38.33%, 44.18% and 50.09%;...

Abstract

Soybean coproducts are important protein sources in aquaculture because of their amino acid profile. Tilapia can be reared on soybean coproducts as the only source of dietary protein without compromising growth. This study estimated apparent digestibility coefficients for five soybean coproducts...

AbstractFull Text

Asian sea bass, Lates calcarifer is strictly a carnivorous fish and has been considered a potential prospect for commercial culture due to its rapid growth rate, high market demand and ability to accept formulated feeds. Protein is the most expensive dietary component, and feeds represent about 50% ...

Abstract

Freshwater fish species account for almost 50% of the world's aquaculture production, with tilapia, carp and catfish representing the primary culture species. These species are cultured in numerous countries as they have adaptable feeding habits, respond well to a wide variety of culture...

Abstract

This study was conducted to investigate the effects of dietary protein level (29.31, 33.19, 37.11, 41.45, 45.58 and 49.03%) on growth performance, whole body and muscle nutritional components and biochemistry in Pacific white shrimp during juvenile and grow up stages. Fish meal, wheat gluten meal,...

Abstract

Soya protein concentrate, wheat gluten, and maize gluten meal were evaluated in combination and as sole dietary protein sources in diets for gilthead sea bream S. [Pagrus] aurata. A growth trial and digestibility determinations demonstrated the effectiveness of these plant proteins as alternatives...
