AbstractFull Text

Four diets were formulated to include different sources of animal by-products as a protein source in Nile tilapia (5.79±0.05 g) diets. The first group fed diet containing fish meal (T1), while the 2nd, 3rd and 4th groups fed a mixture of poultry by-product meal (PBM), animal by-product meal (ABM)...

Abstract

Protein derived from fishmeal is the most expensive ingredient in fish feeds. Any reduction and replacement of this ingredient by a less expensive protein source which will produce the same growth performances will contribute significantly to the reduction of fish production cost. Protein-rich U....

Abstract

Apparent digestibility coefficients (ADCs) of nine protein ingredients were determined for pirarucu Arapaima gigas, a Neotropical fish species with great aquaculture potential in the Amazon. ADCs of crude protein, energy and dry matter were determined by feces sedimentation in cylindrical-conical...

AbstractFull Text

Three types of iso-nitrogenous floating feeds for Indian Major Carps (IMC) were formulated and prepared in extruder by using different feed ingredients. The first feed (SMF) was formulated with soyabean meal as main protein source whereas 2nd (GNF) and 3rd (TCF) feed were formulated by replacing a...

Abstract

Aquaculture, an important source for animal protein utilizes a lot of fishmeal regarded as the best protein source in fish feeds. For making feeds, aquaculture sector alone consumed the equivalent of about 23.8 million metric tons (mmt) of fish or 87% of nonfood fish by 2006. By 2011, the non-food...

AbstractFull Text

The present study evaluated the nutritive value of water hyacinth leaf protein concentrate (WHLPC) as a potential feed ingredient for aquafeeds in general and measured the Apparent Digestibility of the Ingredient (ADI) for dry matter in Oreochromis niloticus adults. Concentrating the water hyacinth ...

Abstract

Background: The potential for alternative plant protein sources to replace limited marine ingredients in fish feeds is important for the future of the fish farming industry. However, plant ingredients in fish feeds contain antinutritional factors (ANFs) that can promote gut inflammation (enteritis) ...
