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

Feed palatability in carnivorous aquaculture species, shrimps in particular, has been crucially related to the presence of compounds acting as attractants that are commonly associated with the prey components under wild conditions. Thus a nutritionally adequate and organoleptically-pleasing diet is ...

Abstract

The use of a yeast-based alternative protein source (NuPro) for shrimp feeding was studied using Pacific white shrimp Litopenaeus vannamei raised under organically certified production practices. NuPro contains a well-balanced amino acid profile and a crude protein level of <50%. Four 1.8-hectare ponds were stocked with PL12-16 Pacific white shrimp at a rate of 180 000 PL/pond. Three ponds were randomly assigned to the diet containing NuPro, while one pond was designated as control and was given traditional fish meal-based diet. Compost from a dairy herd was applied at a rate of 51 kg/ha every two weeks. Initially, feed was applied at 18...

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

L. vannamei postlarvae are normally raised with a protein dense diet (50% protein) rich in fishmeal. Part of the protein is utilized for energy purpose instead of protein synthesis. Based on a previous energy partitioning study, the effects of two isoenergetic compounded feed treatments - animal...

Abstract

As farmers demand for cost reductions along the supply chain, hatchery operators have to focus more on the correct choice of larval feed that will assure production of high quality post larva at lower costs. Since 2001, marine larval diet was tested in commercial hatcheries in Myanmar, Vietnam,...
