Abstract

A brief account of the development and demonstration of soyabean meal-based feeds for aquaculture in China is given. The 3-stage feeding protocol used to culture tilapia from fry to market size is presented. The results of the pond feeding and cage feeding demonstrations are summarized. The future...

Abstract

An 8-week feeding trial was conducted in a warm-water recirculation system at 27±0.2°C to evaluate the nutritive value of dhaincha (Sesbania aculeata) seed meal as a possible fish meal substitute in the diet of tilapia. Five isonitrogenous and isoenergetic diets were formulated to contain 32% crude ...

Abstract

The use of dried duckweed, Lemna minor, as a dietary protein source for Cyprinus carpio common carp fry reared in baskets was investigated. Five diets with similar E:P ratios were fed to common carp fry with an average initial weight of 0.29 g for 90 days. A diet containing 5, 10, 15 or 20%...

Abstract

Fifteen test diets were theoretically formulated to contain 33.32% dietary protein (dry matter) using a mixture of alternative protein sources (soyabean meal, groundnut cake, wheat bran and blood meal) and fishmeal in various proportions. Test diets were fed to fingerlings (initial weight 3.2±0.2...

Abstract

A new method of soybean meal processing has been developed, which may simplify the process of biodiesel production. This method, 'in situ transesterification', eliminates hexane extraction to remove the oil, combining the extraction and transesterification steps so as to synthesize biodiesel via a...

Abstract

Four isoproteinous (40% crude protein) feeds (based on chicken liver, lean shrimp meal, mussel meal or squid meal) were fed to goldfish, Carassius auratus, of 4.61±0.427 g for 30 days at 10% of their body weight. The effect of the feeds on growth performance were compared with two commercial feeds, ...

Abstract

In this study, it evaluated the growth performance of the Pacific white shrimp Litopenaeus vannamei in response to the replacement of fish meal with rendered porcine meat meal (PMM) in its diet. Six isolipidic and isonitrogenous diets were formulated with 0, 25, 35, 45, 55 or 65% replacement of...

CAB ReviewFull Text

Global tilapia production has been increasing in the last decade, with output doubling from 830 000 mt in 1990 to 1.6 million mt in 1999. Tilapia are very easy to culture and have the potential of becoming the prime freshwater species for culture. The ever increasing need for cheap sources of...

Abstract

This article emphasizes the possibility of removing fisheries products (fish meal and fish oil) in feeds given to fish and other aquacultured species without affecting their performance (growth, feed conversion efficiency, feed intake and survival). The results of two replacement studies in red...

Abstract

Two experiments were performed to study the effects of imbalanced levels of arginine and lysine in diets of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) with zein as the major dietary protein source. In the first experiment, the effects of high levels of lysine on marginal levels of arginine and high levels of...
