Abstract

A 70-day feeding experiment was conducted to assess the effects of α-ketoglutarate (AKG) supplementation in different protein sources of diets on the growth performance, nitrogen metabolism and related gene expression of mirror carp. Two kinds of protein diets (soybean meal protein source and fish...

Abstract

Fishmeal (FM) replacement in diets for intensive aquaculture has become a high priority area for the global aquaculture industry. In this study, a twelve week growth trial was conducted with juvenile cobia (18 g initial weight) to examine the effects of non-genetically modified soybean meals as...

Abstract

The rose spotted snapper is an important fishery resource with potential for farming in several Latin American countries. Since transcriptomic information was not available for this species, we generated a reference transcriptome from eleven tissues (brain, heart, gonad, liver, gut, muscle, white...

Abstract

Two feeding trials were conducted in a closed system with Nile tilapia Oreochromis niloticus fry (mean weight, 0.10 g; experiment 1) and juveniles (mean weight, 2.84 g; experiment 2) to examine the effects of total replacement of fish meal (FM), with and without supplementation of DL-methionine...

Abstract

The present study evaluated the effects of partial fish meal (FM) replacement by a soy protein concentrate (SPC) on growth performance and digestive enzyme activity of gilthead sea bream. Isonitrogenous (45% crude protein) and isoenergetic (23 kJ g-1 gross energy) diets with 20% (SPC20), 40%...

Abstract

Many protein sources, including soybean meal (SBM), have been investigated as alternatives to fish meal (FM) in aquaculture feeds. However, FM replacement in feeds for carnivorous fishes is limited by problems with feed intake, growth rate, and overall health associated with the reduced...

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...
