Abstract

The cost of compound feed is a constraint in intensive fish and poultry farming, contributing 60-80% of the total production costs, 70% of which is due to fish and soy meal used as protein source. This review presents the extent to which insects have been utilised as an alternative protein source...

Abstract

The apparent digestibility coefficients (ADC) of six practical protein ingredients, Chilean fish meal (FM), soy protein concentrate (SPC), poultry by-product meal (PBM), corn gluten meal (CGM), meat and bone meal (MBM), and hydrolyzed feather meal (HFM), were determined for juvenile white shrimp (...

Abstract

The utilisation of insect as ingredients for animal feeds has gained considerable interest recently. For example, the potential of black soldier fly (Hermetia illucens; BSF) larvae as a cheap alternative protein source for animal feeds seems to show promising perspectives, especially for poultry...

Abstract

Apparent digestibility coefficients (ADCs) of processed agro-food by-products were assessed in European seabass (Dicentrarchus labrax). Each experimental diet was obtained by replacing 300 g/kg of a commercial-based diet used as reference (REF) with a test ingredient: wheat germ (GERM), okara meal...

Abstract

This is second part from an experiment where the nitrogen retention of poultry by-product meal (PBM) compared to fishmeal (FM) was evaluated using traditional indices. Here a quantitative method using stable isotope ratios of nitrogen (δ15N values) as natural tracers of nitrogen incorporation into...

Abstract

Numerous alternative proteins have been assessed and reported as adequate for fish meal (FM) sparing; however, few studies have directly compared the value of alternative proteins in side-by-side comparisons. Previous research also suggests that changes in dietary protein source may affect fillet...

Abstract

Feed security, feed quality and issues surrounding the safety of raw materials are always of interest to all livestock farmers, feed manufacturers and competent authorities. These concerns are even more important when alternative feed ingredients, new product developments and innovative feeding...

Abstract

In aquaculture, replacing dietary fishmeal with other protein sources is challenging. In order to select substitute sources, it is necessary to determine the apparent digestibility coefficients, many of which have not been well characterized for fish species. We investigated the apparent...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to compare the hydrolysates of fish meal (FM) and poultry by-product meal (PBM) upon in vitro simulation of the digestion process of the Pacific Bluefin tuna, Thunnus orientalis. Two grams of crude protein from each meal were hydrolyzed in triplicate for 60 min using ...

Abstract

The tench (Tinca tinca L., 1758) is a promising freshwater species in which numerous studies have been conducted recently to develop a dedicated feed for optimized growth rate. The aim of this study was to assess the stability of seven candidate reference genes, including 18S ribosomal RNA (18S...
