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...

Abstract

A study was conducted in order to determine the protein requirements of juvenile Mexican silverside (Menidia estor). Seven isoenergetic diets (∼19.9 MJ kg-1) with dietary protein levels of 250, 300, 350, 400, 450, 500 and 550 g kg-1 were prepared as flakes using jack (Caranx sp.) and red snapper (...
