Abstract

Camelina meal Camelina sativa (CM) is a potential protein source in aquaculture feeds, because of its crude protein level (39%) and essential amino acids. Two feeding experiments were conducted with Atlantic cod Gadus morhua. Cod in Experiment I (19.4 g fish-1) were fed diets with 0%, 12% or 24% CM ...

Abstract

A 60-day feeding trial was conducted to investigate the effects of substituting squid and krill meal with marine snails (Buccinum striatissimum) into the diets of juvenile kuruma shrimps (Marsupenaeus japonicus). Five experimental diets were formulated to contain varying levels of snail meal at 0%, ...

Abstract

Mealworm meal (MM) was evaluated for its potential as a future protein source for the farmed shrimp Litopenaeus vannamei. The apparent digestibility coefficients (ADC) were determined using a reference diet and a test diet that contained 85% reference diet and 15% MM, both contained 0.5% chromic...

Abstract

A 60 day feeding trial was conducted to evaluate the suitability of jute (Corchorus olitorius) leaf powder, as a dietary protein source for Labeo rohita fingerlings. One control feed without jute leaf JL0 (0%) and four experimental feeds were prepared with graded levels of jute leaf powder viz; JL...

Abstract

A total of 630 juvenile Chinese sucker, with an average initial weight of 1.72±0.05 g, were fed seven diets for 56 days to study the effect of dietary methionine levels on growth, feed utilization, body composition and haematological parameters on juvenile Chinese sucker. Diet 1 using fish meal as...

Abstract

Eight isonitrogenous (46% crude protein) and isolipidic (14% crude lipid) diets were formulated for juvenile black sea bass Centropristis striata to replace menhaden fish meal (FM) protein (59.5% CP) by three cottonseed meal (CSM) proteins: a CSM prepared from glandless seed (GCSM, 50.4% CP), a CSM ...

Abstract

A 7-wk feeding trial was conducted to evaluate the effects of dietary Antarctic krill meal (AKM) on the growth performance, proximate composition of muscles, and antioxidative capacity of juvenile spotted halibut. Six diets were formulated to contain about 50% protein and 8% lipid. A control diet...

Abstract

Due to limited fish meal and fish oil resources and their high costs for the aquaculture industry, it is necessary to find alternative sustainable sources of protein and lipids. Therefore, seven different diets were formulated with different levels of animal by-products, vegetable proteins, fish...
