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

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

The optimum dietary protein requirement of a Thai strain of climbing perch (Anabas testudineus, Bloch, 1792) fry was investigated by feeding six semi-purified diets containing varying levels of dietary protein within a range of 25-50% over an 8 week feeding period. Fish meal was used as protein...

AbstractFull Text

The feasibility of autochthonous sourcing of fish protein for the enrichment of supplemental feed as commonly formulated for feeding during Heterobranchus longifilis and Oreochromis niloticus polyculture was examined. The feed had 12.9% protein content and was applied in treatment 1. In treatment...

AbstractFull Text

A limiting factor in the production of aquatic organisms refers to the formulation of low cost diets with protein sources that meet the nutritional requirements of animals. Therefore, this study aimed to evaluate the growth performance of reared caged pacu (Piaractus mesopotamicus) in the Itaipu...

Abstract

This study was conducted to determine the effects of fish meal protein replacement by soybean meal (SBM) protein in the diets on the growth performance of hybrid red snapper Lutjanus argentimaculatus × Lutjanus sebae. Six isonitrogenous (45% crude protein) and isolipidic (12% crude lipid) diets...
