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 8-week feeding trial was carried out to evaluate the effects of replacing fish meal (FM) with housefly (Musca domestica) maggot meal (HFMM) on growth, antioxidant capacity, digestive enzymes activity, and gut health of bullfrog Rana (Lithobates) catesbeiana. A basal experimental diet was...

Abstract

Most studies on dietary vegetable oil in rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) have been conducted on a background of dietary EPA (20:5n-3) and DHA (22:6n-3) contained in the fishmeal used as a protein source in aquaculture feed. If dietary EPA and DHA repress their endogenous synthesis from...

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

Finding suitable alternative protein sources for diets of carnivorous fish species remains a major concern for sustainable aquaculture. Through genetic selection, we created a strain of rainbow trout that outperforms parental lines in utilizing an all-plant protein diet and does not develop...

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

Aquaculture feeds for carnivorous finfish species have been dependent upon the use of fish meal as the major source of dietary protein; however, the increasing demands upon the finite quantity of this high-quality protein source requires that feeds become increasingly comprised of alternative plant ...
