Abstract

Limited availability of sustainable feed ingredients is a serious concern in salmon aquaculture. Insects may become an important, sustainable resource for expanding the raw material repertoire. Herein, we present data from an 8-week feeding trial with pre-smolt Atlantic salmon (initial body weight...

Abstract

Inclusion of prebiotics in aqua feeds, though a costly strategy, has increased as a means to improve growth. Still, its effects on health improvement are not fully disclosed. Regarding their immunestimulatory properties, research has focused on carbohydrates such as fructooligosaccharides and...

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...

Abstract

The serial replacement of fish meal (anchovetta) by canola meal (CM) (100, 200, 300 g kg-1) as either solvent extracted (SE) CM or expeller extracted (EX) CM was undertaken to investigate the effects of increasing dietary CM levels on feed intake, growth, protein and energy retention, plasma...

Abstract

An investigation was conducted to evaluate the effect of feeding selected exotic ingredients on immune responses and expression of immune related genes in mirror carp (Cyprinus carpio). Fish were fed diets for a total of 56 days. Fishmeal served as the main protein source in the control diet and...

Abstract

The rose spotted snapper is an important fishery resource with potential for farming in several Latin American countries. Since transcriptomic information was not available for this species, we generated a reference transcriptome from eleven tissues (brain, heart, gonad, liver, gut, muscle, white...

Abstract

Legumes such as soybean, peas and lupin have attracted considerable interest as potential sources of protein to replace finite and limiting supplies of marine fishmeal (FM) as major ingredients for aquafeeds. In this respect, faba beans (Vicia faba) represent a widespread and relatively unexploited ...

Abstract

This study was undertaken to assess the interactive effects of dietary biotin and avidin on growth, feed conversion, survival and deficiency syndrome of tilapia and to determine the influence of dietary biotin deficiency on the expression of key genes related to biotin metabolism in tilapia. Six...

Abstract

Altered lipid metabolism has been shown in fish fed plant protein sources. The present study aimed to gain further insights into how intestinal and hepatic lipid absorption and metabolism are modulated by plant meal (PM) and soya-saponin (SA) inclusion in salmon feed. Post-smolt Atlantic salmon...
