Abstract

In response to the limitation in the global supply of fish meal, the traditional protein source used in aquaculture feed, efforts have increasingly been focused on the use of alternative protein sources of plant origin. However, plant ingredients may cause growth retardation in aquaculture fish...

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...

Abstract

Moringa is one of promising plant protein sources for aquaculture. The fluctuating results surrounding the optimal feeding level in fish diets were the motivation behind this study. A 75-day feeding trail was conducted to evaluate the effect of feeding different levels of raw moringa (Moringa...

Abstract

Fingerlings of Clarias batrachus were fed on six formulated diets with different protein levels, over a period of 100 days to study their protein requirements. Growth and specific growth rate remained low when fed on low protein diets. Highest growth performance was observed in groups fed on 40.25% ...

Abstract

Purpose: Increased demand for animal protein additives in aquaculture has initiated the search of an alternative cheap protein source for aquatic animals, which can compensate the amino acids level of fishmeal (FM) and act as a valuable feedstuff. Abundantly available pre-tanned proteinaceous solid ...

Abstract

In order to enhance aquaculture production, improve food security, and reduce the level of poverty in developing countries, a search for inexpensive and locally available feedstuffs is required. The present study surveyed selected potential feedstuffs with a specific focus on underutilized animal ...

Abstract

Aquaculture is one of the fastest growing food producing sectors in the world accounting for approximately 50% of fisheries products. The protein component in aquaculture diet is the single most expensive portion and important dietary nutrient. Generally, feed ingredients of animal origin having...

Abstract

This study evaluated the potential of green water meal (GWM) as an ingredient in the diets for early juvenile Pacific white shrimp, Litopenaeus vannamei. Five isonitrogenous and isolipidic diets were formulated with 0% (control diet), 10, 20, 30, and 40% (GWM0, GWM10, GWM20, GWM30, and GWM40,...

Abstract

The global farming of fish and shellfish has been the fastest growing food producing sector in the last few decades and has become an important industry in many countries. Fishmeal made from pelagic fish used to be the major dietary protein source in compounded feed for many important farmed...
