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

The cost of compound feed is a constraint in intensive fish and poultry farming, contributing 60-80% of the total production costs, 70% of which is due to fish and soy meal used as protein source. This review presents the extent to which insects have been utilised as an alternative protein source...

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

This experiment was conducted in parallel with work in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DR-Congo) with the objective to evaluate the growth performance and production costs of Nile tilapia fed diets formulated using local plant protein sources, and to compare them to those obtained with an...

AbstractFull Text

A limiting factor in the production of aquatic organisms refers to the formulation of low cost diets with protein sources that meet the nutritional requirements of animals. Therefore, this study aimed to evaluate the growth performance of reared caged pacu (Piaractus mesopotamicus) in the Itaipu...

AbstractFull Text

A total of 360 Nile tilapia larvae were distributed in 24 12l-aquaria to evaluate different protein vegetal sources for feeding (Brazil). The experiment was randomized with four treatments and six repetitions. Four protein vegetal sources were compared (soya meal (SM), canola meal (CM), sunflower...
