Abstract

In the last decade substantial innovation in feeds has led to a significant reduction in fishmeal inclusion rates in feed for aquaculture. Nevertheless, to maintain the current growth of aquaculture, the demand of nutrient will increase at the same rate. So finding a sustainable alternative protein ...

Abstract

Due to its high protein synthesis and deposition rates, skeletal muscle protein deposition is a major determinant of fish growth. Dietary protein complexity is likely to influence protein utilization and deposition in skeletal muscle, possibly affecting fish myogenesis. In this study, three...

Abstract

An experiment was conducted with barramundi (Lates calcarifer) juveniles (initial weight 10.3 g±0.3 g) to examine the partial efficiency of utilization of methionine (Met) from intact protein (fishmeal or lupin protein concentrate) and a crystalline DL-Met source. Fish were fed at one of three...

Abstract

Mature winged bean, P. tetragonolobus, seeds were quick-cooked and the full-fat meal derived was used to completely replace menhaden fish meal as a dietary protein source for the African catfish, C. gariepinus. Five dry practical diets (CP 400 g/kg and gross energy 17.5 kJ/g dry diet) containing...

Abstract

Fingerlings were stocked in eight, 0.1-ha earthen ponds at a density of 4000/ha in the ratio 40% catla (Catla catla), 20% rohu (Labeo rohita), 20% mrigal (Cirrhinus mrigala), 5% mirror carp (Cyprinus carpio var. specularis) and 15% rajpunti (Puntius gonionotus). Inorganic and organic fertilizers...

Abstract

Growth, feed utilization and protein turnover using 2 different fish meal particle sizes (micro- or coarse-grounded) at 3 dietary protein concentrations (30, 35 and 45%) were studied in individually tagged Atlantic salmon in a 3-month growth experiment. At the end of the experimental period, ...

Abstract

Mature winged bean, P. tetragonolobus, seeds (cv. Tpt26) were subjected to different moist heat treatments (autoclaving, boiling, cooking, quick cooking), and the meals derived were assayed for protein content, trypsin-inhibitory activity, tannin content, lectin activity and in vitro digestibility. ...

Abstract

Palm kernel and soyabean cake were used to substitute a fish meal-based standard diet at 90, 70, 50, 30 or 0% inclusion levels, and fed to 18 groups of O. niloticus (10/tank) in two 18-week trials. Initial weights of fish used were 7.2-7.4 and 4.5-6.4 g, respectively. Growth performance and feed...

Abstract

An isonitrogenous (47% CP) and isoenergetic (20 kJ/g) diet containing fish meal as the principal protein source, and 2 others in which seaweed (P. purpurea) meal replaced 9 and 18% of the fish meal component, were fed for 50 days to 50 juvenile C. labrosus, mean weight 1 g and mean length 2.5 cm,...

Abstract

Common carp fry, mean body weight 50 mg, were stocked into 36 tanks at 40/tank and fed on test diets in triplicate 4 times daily at 3-h intervals for 5 weeks. Isonitrogenous test diets (40% protein) contained different levels of mustard, sesame, linseed, copra and groundnut oilseed cakes and...
