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

Three diets were evaluated for growth, production and economic performance of the Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus, after a culture period of 160 days at the Aquaculture Research and Development Centre (ARDEC), Akosombo, Ghana. Locally available agro-industrial by-products were used to compound...

Abstract

An experiment was conducted to examine effects of five levels of dietary protein (25, 27, 29, 31 y 33%) on performance by the gamitana, Colossoma macropomum Cuvier 1818. The parameters measured were weight gain (WG), food conversion (Fe), retained protein (RP), protein efficiency ratio (PER), and...

Abstract

The effects of dietary protein levels on growth performance and body composition of jade perch S. barcoo were investigated by using white fish meal as a protein source in pelleted feeds. 105 jade perch with average initial body weight of 104.13±0.46 g were used in an 8-week growth trial. All the...

Abstract

The utilization potential of soybean meal as an alternative protein source for fish meal in practical diets for the juvenile Japanese flounder (Paralichthys olivaceus) was assessed in the present study. Four isonitrogenous and isolipidic diets were formulated to contain 47% protein and 9% lipid....
