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...

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

The present research evaluated targeted gene expression panels and microbiota analysis to provide greater insight into the effects of alternatively-sourced dietary ingredients on production indices, gut health, changes in the gut microbiota and genes involved in the regulation of appetite, growth,...

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 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

Inclusion of plant protein sources such as soyabean meal (SBM) in aquafeeds is associated with decreased lipid digestibility, reduced bile acid levels and hypocholesterolaemia. The mechanism for these metabolic abnormalities is unknown. The present study aimed at gaining further insight into how...
