Abstract

Population growth combined with increasingly limited resources of arable land and fresh water has resulted in a need for alternative protein sources. Macroalgae (seaweed) and microalgae are examples of under-exploited "crops". Algae do not compete with traditional food crops for space and...

Abstract

Purpose: Increased demand for animal protein additives in aquaculture has initiated the search of an alternative cheap protein source for aquatic animals, which can compensate the amino acids level of fishmeal (FM) and act as a valuable feedstuff. Abundantly available pre-tanned proteinaceous solid ...

Abstract

Soybean coproducts are important protein sources in aquaculture because of their amino acid profile. Tilapia can be reared on soybean coproducts as the only source of dietary protein without compromising growth. This study estimated apparent digestibility coefficients for five soybean coproducts...

AbstractFull Text

The possibility of locally available plant meals as a replacement of soybean meal as dietary protein source for Catla catla fingerlings was evaluated under intensive rearing condition in glass aquarium for 60 days. Three iso-nitrogenous (24% crude protein) diets (D1, D2 and D3) were prepared and ...

Abstract

The significant effect of using distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS), one of the main co-products obtained from the fermentation of cereal grains as an ingredient and alternative protein source in formulating feeds for animals with emphasis on fish nutrition was discussed. The chemical...

Abstract

In the work to find replacement for fish meal in feed for fish, the inclusion of plant protein sources at high dietary level is an important issue. The present experiment was carried out to reveal how different feed ingredients affected the eating quality of the grown up fish with focus on nitrogen ...

AbstractFull Text

Fish meal is considered a major source of protein commonly used in domestic animal feeds as well as in commercial aqua feeds. The present study documents the different species used for the production of fish meal in Pakistan and to determine the proximate composition of fish meal samples obtained...

Abstract

Four practical diets containing 2% of crude protein (CP) (180 and 280 g kg-1), with or without menhaden fish meal (FM), were fed to Australian red claw Cherax quadricarinatus during a 97-day feeding trial. Growth, survival, body composition and processing traits of pond-cultured red claw were...

Abstract

The effects of feed intake level on energy and nitrogen partitioning were studied in juvenile Atlantic cod (250 g) fed two fish meal based diets differing in protein and lipid content (54:31 and 65:16) at 10°C. Replicate groups of cod were feed deprived for 32 days or fed one of the two diets at...
