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

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

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...

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

Two 12-week feeding experiments were conducted to evaluate the nutritional value of squid viscera meal with cadmium removal treatment (dCSVM), which contained 1.5-2.0 mg/kg cadmium, as an alternative protein source to sardine meal in diets for fingerling black rockfish Sebastes schlegeli. Initial...

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

The optimum dietary protein requirement of a Thai strain of climbing perch (Anabas testudineus, Bloch, 1792) fry was investigated by feeding six semi-purified diets containing varying levels of dietary protein within a range of 25-50% over an 8 week feeding period. Fish meal was used as protein...

Abstract

Reduction and possible elimination of fish meal and fish oil from the nutrition of aqua cultural fish species is one of the priorities in nowadays research. Due to the growing needs for fish for human consumption and the cost of fishmeal respectively, the global trend of excessive fishing has up to ...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to determine the coefficients of apparent and true digestibility of protein and amino acids of five feedstuffs (corn, wheat bran, soybean meal, corn gluten meal and fish meal) in 900 sex-reversed Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) of the Thai strain during the...
