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 ...

Abstract

This study was conducted to investigate the effects of dietary protein level (29.31, 33.19, 37.11, 41.45, 45.58 and 49.03%) on growth performance, whole body and muscle nutritional components and biochemistry in Pacific white shrimp during juvenile and grow up stages. Fish meal, wheat gluten meal,...

Abstract

This experiment aimed to investigate the effects of main nutrient element and source on growth, body color, digestion and absorption of Plectropomus leopardus in industrialized mariculture condition. A 2×2×2 three-factor experiment design which including two nutrient element factors [protein level: ...

Abstract

A 12-week feeding trials was conducted to evaluate the use of animal and plant protein, in combination with Glucosamine source for Asian Catfish, Clarias batrachus (av. wt. 2.2+0.009 to 2.6+0.03 g). This study was performed to evaluate the effect on fish growth performance by replacing animal...

Abstract

Atlantic cod were fed six diets where the ratio of protein from fish meal to vegetable protein were varied from 91%, 67% to 46%, respectively. The experimental groups were performed in triplicate in a 20 week growth trial, increasing fish weight from about 167 g to 690 g. The vegetable protein...

Abstract

A feeding trial was conducted to investigate the optimal dietary L-methionine level for the large yellow croaker (Pseudosciaena crocea R.) larvae from 12 to 42 days after hatching (DAH 12-42). We designed six groups of microdiets (MDs), which contains equal amounts of nitrogen (8.8%) and energy...

Abstract

In vitro methods have previously been utilized for the rapid and reliable evaluation of protein digestibility in fish. In this study we used in vitro methods to compare the digestibility of various live and artificial larval feeds and feed ingredients. Given previous suggestions that water-soluble...

AbstractFull Text

Digestive enzymes activity and in vitro protein, starch and lipid digestibility were investigated in three different sizes of Nile tilapia (5.7, 35.8 and 92.1 g). Enzyme activity from intestine showed the high activity of protease and lipase in small fish and amylase in the large one. The In vitro...

Abstract

The optimization of protein content in earthworm-based fish feed formulation was investigated in the study. Full factorial design (FFD) and central composite design (CCD) were used as a statistical tool to screen the range of the selected parameters and to optimize the process, respectively. Three...

Abstract

Two experiments were conducted to investigate the effects of varying dietary protein (35-45%) and energy levels (17.34-19.44 kJ/g) on the growth performance of milkfish (Chanos chanos) maintained under laboratory (experiment I) and field conditions (Experiment II) in inland saline groundwater. The...
