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

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

Xylan is one of the main non-starch polysaccharides (NSPs) in cottonseed meal. This study aimed to evaluate the anti-nutrition effect of xylan and to better understand cottonseed meal as a feed ingredient for the Chinese mitten crab, Eriocheir sinensis. A diet containing 280 g/kg fishmeal without...

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

Background: The potential for alternative plant protein sources to replace limited marine ingredients in fish feeds is important for the future of the fish farming industry. However, plant ingredients in fish feeds contain antinutritional factors (ANFs) that can promote gut inflammation (enteritis) ...

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

Given its complex metamorphosis and digestive system ontogeny, Senegalese sole larvae capacity to digest and utilize dietary protein is likely to change throughout development. In the present study, we hypothesized that the manipulation of dietary protein complexity may affect Senegalese sole...

Abstract

An experiment was conducted to examine the potential for the complete replacement of fishmeal (FM) and fish oil (FO) in diets for barramundi, Lates calcarifer. A series of diets were formulated to the same digestible protein and energy specifications, but which were designed with FM inclusion...
