Abstract

Macrobrachium nipponense is a new aquaculture species with high market demand and is preferred as food by Asian consumers. However, its nutrient requirements and optimal dietary sources have not been fully evaluated. In the present study, we examined four common plant protein sources (soybean meal, ...

Abstract

The effects of partial (75%; diet PP75) and total (100%; diet PP100) replacement of fish meal by plant protein sources on the intestinal nutrient absorption of gilthead sea bream and rainbow trout were examined over a 12-week growth trial. The diets comprised a mixture of plant ingredients (corn...

Abstract

The basic nutrient requirements for channel catfish, Ictalurus punctatus, are well known, with anecdotal evidence suggesting that catfish fry grow faster and have better survival when fed an animal protein diet. However, the ability to grow channel catfish as small as 11 g on all plant diets and a...

Abstract

Three experimental diets in which fish meal was partially (50 and 75%, named PP50 and PP75 diets, respectively) or totally replaced (PP100 diet) by plant protein sources were fed to rainbow trout and gilthead sea bream. We studied the effects of these diets on digestive enzymes in comparison to...

Abstract

To be able to study nutrient requirement and utilization in any species, a diet supporting normal feed intake and growth equally well as a traditional fish meal-based diet is needed. Additionally the formulation of the diet should allow low levels of the nutrient under study. When studying the...
