Abstract

This experiment was conducted to determine the apparent digestibility coefficients (ADC) of dry matter (DM), crude protein (CP), amino acid (AA) and gross energy (GE) of Peruvian red fish meal, soybean meal, sunflower meal and corn gluten meal in juvenile turbot (Scophthalmus maximus. L) and the...

Abstract

The study of alternative protein sources is very important to lower the cost of aquafeeds. In this study, the use of waste from the processing of silver catfish (Rhamdia quelen) in the diet of juveniles of this species was evaluated. This feed was used in a recirculation system with 16...

Abstract

Fish meal is still the main protein in feed formulations, unsustainable development and overfishing practices reduce captures since last decade. An increasing demand for high quality feed for aquaculture force the evaluation of new protein sources. Jatropha curcas meal was used in a 45 day feeding...

AbstractFull Text

A 16-week feeding trial was conducted to observe the growth performance of red hybrid tilapia (Oreochromis sp.) fed two levels (10% and 15%) of feather meal, which replaced 92% and 100% of fishmeal in the diets. Also, the water quality parameters in the recirculating water system were determined...

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

A feeding experiment was undertaken for 84 days to investigate the growth performance and the feed utilization of two horseshoe crab species from partial replacement of fish meal (FM) with blood meal (BM), meat and bone meal (MBM), and poultry by-product meal (PBM) in their diet. Triplicate groups...

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

Reaching food security is in general one of the main goals in Developing Countries, especially in Africa. In those countries, a deficiency of protein is being experienced due to the lack of diversification of the food supply by the most part of the population. Fishes are beings which have the...

Abstract

Numerous studies have been focused on the replacement of fish meal by other alternative protein sources. However, little is currently known about the molecular mechanism of utilization of diets with different protein sources in fish. Grass carp is a typical herbivorous fish. To elucidate the...

The study was conducted to compare two plant ingredients as dietary protein sources for rainbow trout on the basis of feed acceptability, survival, growth, feed conversion, nitrogen and phosphorus utilization efficiency and loading. Two extruded diets were formulated with the inclusion of a soybean ...
