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...

Abstract

The search for alternative protein sources in fish diets is necessary because of the wide variation in the price and availability of some traditional protein ingredients. An experiment lasting 45 days was conducted in a water recirculation system of juvenile Nile tilapia (initial weight of 16.2±0.1 ...

AbstractFull Text

Present study was undertaken to study Soybean meal (SBM) and Cyclop-eeze (CE) meal were used at three different protein levels (25%, 30% and 35%). The growth performance of L. vannamei was found to be best when fed with diet CE30 (7.75 gm) and least with control diet (5.90 gm). L. vannamei fed 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,...

Abstract

Animal by-products including Feather Meal (FTM) have shown very promising findings when included in aquaculture feeds. However, their use is limited to a few fish species only. More studies are needed to investigate the full potential of this by-product. In the present study, a total of six diets...

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 ...
