Abstract

An 8-week feeding trial was conducted using six test diets to evaluate the effects of supplementation of crystalline or coated lysine (Lys) and/or methionine (Met) on growth performance and feed utilization of the Chinese sucker, Myxocyprinus asiaticus. Test diets were fed to triplicate groups of...

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

A growth trial was conducted with the aim of developing a practical, environmentally sustainable and cost-effective plant-protein-based diet for Senegalese sole juveniles without compromising growth or protein deposition. A reference diet contained fish meal as the main protein source (F45,...

Abstract

Feeding trials were conducted to evaluate the potentialities of using a mixture of different protein sources based on seafood by-products and soybean proteins to partially or completely replace fishmeal in practical diets for red sea bream, Pagrus major. Four diets (50% crude protein and 20 kJ g-1...

Abstract

An eight-week trial compared the performances of two genetic lines of Penaeus vannamei, T-line and G-line, fed with different levels and sources of dietary protein. Both lines were originated from the same founder populations but had gone through genetic selection targeting different breeding goals ...

Abstract

Commercial farming of carnivorous fish demands the reduction of environmental impact of feeds; that requires minimal use of dietary animal protein. This study investigated the digestibility of diets formulated exclusively out of plant protein, added feed attractants, by the carnivore largemouth...

Abstract

This study evaluated the effect of partial (50%) and complete replacement (100%) of fishmeal with a mixture of plant protein sources in 25% or 30% protein feeds on the biological performance and production of tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus. Four experimental diets containing soybean meal, alfalfa...

Abstract

Achieving true sustainability in fish farming requires the replacement of most of the fish meal and fish oil utilized as feedstuffs. The present experiment reports 2 feeding trials that resulted in the total replacement of fish meal and fish oil in juvenile cobia (Rachycentron canadum). The first...
