Abstract

Use of fish meal in aquaculture is gradually becoming unsustainable due to competition, cost and ecological challenges hence the need to expand the alternative protein sources. The earthworm, Eisenia fetida is among the non-conventional protein sources, which have been tested with relatively...

Abstract

The raising demand of fish for human consumption has caused a rise in fish cultivation to become a more intense activity and has increased the need for fish feed formulas for aquaculture. Tilapia are aquatic organisms with moderate protein requirements. One of the traditional ingredients used to...

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

We report feeding studies on hybrid fish (carnivorous × omnivorous) to determine the interactions between protein sources during diet selection trials. We also examined behavioural rhythms (feeding and locomotor activity) using a self-feeding system mounted with a feeder connected to an infrared...

Abstract

Two experiments were conducted for red sea bream (Pagrus major). In experiment 1, the optimum level of glutamic acid and natural feeding stimulants to enhance feed intake were determined and found that glutamic acid level of 0.5% and fish meat hydrolysate (FMH) were effective. In experiment 2, fish ...

Abstract

There is a need to find sustainable alternatives to fishmeal (FM) and fish oil (FO) in feed formulations to support the continued growth of aquaculture. FM is mostly produced from mass-caught pelagic species, but the production has been relatively constant for several decades. The aim of this study ...

Abstract

We conducted a 16-wk feeding trial with large juvenile red drum, Sciaenops ocellatus. Four diets were randomly assigned to six replicate tanks per treatment. Three isonitrogenous (ca. 44.5% protein) and isolipidic (ca. 14.1% lipid) extruded diets were formulated to compare a fishmeal-based diet...

Abstract

A feeding trial was conducted to evaluate the effect of nucleotides supplementation to low-fish meal feed on growth and fatty acid composition of rainbow trout. Six isonitrogenous (42% crude protein) and isolipidic (18% crude lipid) diets were formulated containing fish meal and plant ingredients...

Abstract

The fast growth of the aquaculture sector worldwide increases the demand for aquafeeds. Since the production of conventional protein sources like fish meal is stagnating due to fully exploited fish stocks, far-reaching sustainable adaptions of production techniques as well as new alternative ...

Abstract

This experiment was conducted to study the effects of different protein sources on growth performance and feed intake regulation of pre-adult grass carp (initial body weight: 153.4±0.3 g), a herbivorous species. Two isonitrogenous, isoenergetic with essential amino acids and available phosphorus...
