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...

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

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...

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 ...

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...

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 ...

Abstract

Marine yeasts used in aquaculture disease control can also be an important protein source for improving feeding and nutrition of crustaceans. Yarrowia lipolytica has been studied for its capacity to secrete heterologous proteins and high content of unsaturated fatty acids, beta-glucan, and mannane...

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...

A 16-week feeding trial was conducted to determine the potential use of the aquatic weed, Ceratophyllum sp., meal to replace soybean cake meal (SCM) as a protein source in diets for grow-out of rabbitfish, Siganus guttatus. Four iso-nitrogenous diets were formulated to contain different levels of ...

Abstract

A 10-week feeding trial was conducted to determine the dietary protein requirement of juvenile triangular bream (Megalobrama terminalis). Five semi-purified diets (white fishmeal as a protein source) were formulated with five crude protein (CP) levels (26.30%, 32.94%, 38.33%, 44.18% and 50.09%;...
