Abstract

Chinese mitten crab (Eriocheir sinensis) is an importantly economic species for aquaculture in China due to its desirable taste and nutrient content. In the past decades, with the continuous expansion of crab farm and artificial feed development, the increasing demand for fish meal by aquaculture...

Abstract

The introduction of plant protein (PP) sources in aquafeed is regarded as an economic and environmental-friendly strategy for aquaculture. Our objective was to investigate the effects of pure PP diets on the growth performance and to analyze their effects on flesh quality of grass carp (357.2±0.7...

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

To determine differences between commercial size wild and farmed blackspot seabream, some parameters affecting quality were evaluated during shelf life, namely the fatty acid profiles, pH, muscle colour and Quality Index Method (QIM). In addition, a histological study of the lipids' distribution in ...

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

Intensification of cyprinid production has resulted in substantial increases in aquafeed demand for these species and a requirement for studies on new protein sources. Increased availability of presscakes from biodiesel crops may help to meet this requirement. The suitability of detoxified Jatropha ...

Abstract

A feeding trial was undertaken to develop a low fishmeal practical diet for mangrove red snapper (Lutjanus argentimaculatus) by replacing 60% fishmeal (FM) protein with either soybean meal (SM) or peanut meal (PM), and 10% fish soluble (FS) or krill meal (KM) supplementation. Seven isonitrogenous...

Abstract

Fish meal is still the main protein in feed formulations, unsustainable development and overfishing practices reduce captures since last decade. An increasing demand for high quality feed for aquaculture force the evaluation of new protein sources. Jatropha curcas meal was used in a 45 day feeding...

Abstract

This study was conducted as a trial of using dry whey meal (DWM) as a substitute for fish meal (FM) in practical diets for Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus. Triplicate fish groups were fed on five isonitrogenous (30.2%) and isolipidic (6.9%) diets. The control diet (D1) used FM as the sole ...

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%, ...
