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

World aquaculture is growing (+8% per year) to meet the increasing demand of fish for human consumption that capture by fisheries can no longer cover. Consequently, the need for aquafeed and feedstuffs is rising while volumes of fishmeal and fish oil, the traditional aquafeed ingredients, remain...

Abstract

Two 12-week feeding experiments were conducted to evaluate the nutritional value of squid viscera meal with cadmium removal treatment (dCSVM), which contained 1.5-2.0 mg/kg cadmium, as an alternative protein source to sardine meal in diets for fingerling black rockfish Sebastes schlegeli. Initial...

Abstract

Spotted wolffish (Anarhichas minor) is a promising new candidate for cold-water fish farming, but knowledge is needed about its physiology and its capacity to utilize alternative feed ingredients. The aim of the study was to investigate fast muscle growth dynamics, changes in chemical composition...

Abstract

In this study, a feeding trial was conducted to evaluate the effects of adding different levels of sodium butyrate in high plant protein diets on growth performance, nutrient apparent digestibility coefficients and liver antioxidant function of juvenile turbot (Scophthalmus maximus L.), and to...

AbstractFull Text

The search for alternative foods that can replace fishmeal in commercial diets formulation is constant, especially those that have a good amino acid profile and digestibility coefficient. The worm meal seems to be a good protein source in substitution, even partial, of fish meal in diets for ...

Abstract

A seven-week feeding trial was conducted to examine the possibility of replacing fish meal with earthworm meal in the diets of the African catfish, Clarias gariepinus fry. Fish meal protein was replaced by earthworm meal at 0% (D0); 15% (D15); 25% (D25); 35% (D35); and 50% (D50). The diets were...

AbstractFull Text

Tilapia is an unique fish in the inland fish production of Sri Lanka with maximum contribution coming reservoir fisheries catches. There is a possibility to enhance tilapia aquaculture further through other systems of aquaculture practices. However, feed cost is the highest operating cost in the ...

Abstract

The optimum dietary protein requirement of a Thai strain of climbing perch (Anabas testudineus, Bloch, 1792) fry was investigated by feeding six semi-purified diets containing varying levels of dietary protein within a range of 25-50% over an 8 week feeding period. Fish meal was used as protein...

Abstract

Costs of compounded diets containing fish meal as a primary protein source can be expected to rise as fish meal prices increase in response to static supply and growing demand. Alternatives to fish meal are needed to reduce production costs in many aquaculture enterprises. Some plant proteins are...
