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

A 12-week feeding trial was carried out to evaluate the effects of different levels of dietary choline on growth rate, body composition and total liver lipid of juvenile Siberian sturgeon, Acipenser baerii. A semi-purified basal diet was formulated using vitamin-free casein and wheat gluten as a ...

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

Water hyacinth meal (WHM) as an alternative protein source was investigated in this study. Whole water hyacinth plant meal (WPM), water hyacinth leaf meal (WLM) and soya bean meal (SBM) were used to compound three isoproteic (40% crude protein) fish diets. Catfish of 11.2±0.3 g average weight were...

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....
