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

A 12-week growth trial was conducted to assess an improved soybean meal (ISBM) in the diet of Pacific white shrimp (PWS). Four isonitrogenous and isolipidic experimental diets were formulated: the control diet (ISBM-0) contained 30% fishmeal (FM) and three test diets (ISBM-33, ISBM-66 and ISBM-100) ...
