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

Protein derived from fishmeal is the most expensive ingredient in fish feeds. Any reduction and replacement of this ingredient by a less expensive protein source which will produce the same growth performances will contribute significantly to the reduction of fish production cost. Protein-rich U....

Abstract

The objective of this study was to compare the hydrolysates of fish meal (FM) and poultry by-product meal (PBM) upon in vitro simulation of the digestion process of the Pacific Bluefin tuna, Thunnus orientalis. Two grams of crude protein from each meal were hydrolyzed in triplicate for 60 min using ...

AbstractFull Text

The use of local feedstuffs to substitute conventional feedstuffs in fish nutrition has been widely studied. However, there is no report to date on the use of by-products from fish processing plants as feed for fish. The lack of locally available feedstuff for aquaculture feeds has encouraged the...

Abstract

The main problem of the aquaculture sector is the provision of suitable and sufficient fish feed, because the most important protein source in aquaculture, the fish meal, is a limited resource. Due to their high nutritional value the rapeseed proteins have great potential as an alternative protein...

Abstract

A 70-day growth trail was conducted to investigate the effects of inclusion of high levels of meat and bone meal (MBM) and protein concentrate (PC) on growth, digestibility and economic performances of climbing perch, Anabas testudineus. Four isonitrogenous diets were formulated by lowering the...

Abstract

The perception of key players in the fish farming sector towards the use of insects is important for their acceptance to adopt insects as an alternative protein source to the expensive fish meal. Perception was established through a cross-sectional study of 208 fish farmers and 71 fish feed traders ...

Abstract

In response to the limitation in the global supply of fish meal, the traditional protein source used in aquaculture feed, efforts have increasingly been focused on the use of alternative protein sources of plant origin. However, plant ingredients may cause growth retardation in aquaculture fish...
