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

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,...

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

We tested a 50% reduction in feeding rate of Litopenaeus vannamei at stocking densities of 15 to 35 post-larvae/m2 in conjunction with periodic pond fertilization with 35 kg/ha of urea and 12 kg/ha of triple super phosphate. Two commercial diets with 35% protein foods were fed for 84 days. Survival ...

Abstract

The replacement of marine proteins with vegetable proteins or terrestrial animal byproducts in aquaculture diets has been gaining momentum. This study examines the viability of replacing fish meal in shrimp production diets with alternative protein sources (combinations of vegetable proteins) in...

Abstract

Juvenile National Warmwater Aquaculture Center 103 (NWAC103) and Norris strain channel catfish Ictalurus punctatus (from 32 and 29 full-sib families, respectively) were individually tagged and stocked into 0.04-ha ponds at 14,400 fish/ha. Four ponds each of NWAC103 and Norris strain fish were fed a ...

Abstract

The aim of this study is to determine the effect of betaine supplements on the feed intake of soyabean oilmeal fed grouper (Epinephelus fuscoguttatus). 108 E. fuscoguttatus juveniles (BW 15.62±0.25 g) were obtained from a local fish farmer. The fish were distributed evenly into 9 floating cylinder...

Abstract

A feeding trial was conducted to investigate the optimal dietary L-methionine level for the large yellow croaker (Pseudosciaena crocea R.) larvae from 12 to 42 days after hatching (DAH 12-42). We designed six groups of microdiets (MDs), which contains equal amounts of nitrogen (8.8%) and energy...
