Abstract

An experiment was conducted with barramundi (Lates calcarifer) juveniles (initial weight 10.3 g±0.3 g) to examine the partial efficiency of utilization of methionine (Met) from intact protein (fishmeal or lupin protein concentrate) and a crystalline DL-Met source. Fish were fed at one of three...

Abstract

An 8-week feeding trial was conducted to investigate the dietary protein requirement of juvenile mandarin fish, Siniperca scherzeri, a demersal freshwater piscivore with high commercial value in East Asia. Five isolipidic (100 g/kg) and isoenergetic (20 MJ/kg) practical diets were formulated to...

Abstract

This study evaluated the use of hydrolysed rubber seed meal as a locally grown alternative feed ingredient to reduce the use of fishmeal within formulated feeds for tilapia. Five experimental diets were prepared by formulating different inclusion levels of hydrolysed rubber seed meal (0%, 25%, 50%, ...

Abstract

The perception of key players in the fish farming sector towards the use of insects is important for their acceptance to adopt insects as an alternative protein source to the expensive fish meal. Perception was established through a cross-sectional study of 208 fish farmers and 71 fish feed traders ...

Abstract

Protein enhanced copra meal (PECM®) is an alternative, cheap, and sustainable source of plant protein for the aquafeed industry, albeit its use on carnivorous fish species has been very limited. A 70-day feeding trial using grouper Epinephelus fuscoguttatus (initial mean body weight of 1.86±0.19 g) ...

Abstract

Carob seed germ meal (CSGM) was evaluated as ingredient for meagre juveniles' diets. For that purpose meagre was fed diets with increasing levels of CSGM (75 g kg-1, 150 g kg-1 and 225 g kg-1) replacing fish meal. Effects on growth performance, feed efficiency, activities of digestive enzymes and...

Abstract

This study assessed the effects of the green seaweed Cladophora spp. as a protein source to substitute fishmeal protein in practical diets for postlarval tiger shrimp (Penaeus monodon). A control diet without containing seaweed meal was compared with five experimental diets in which fishmeal...

Abstract

This study investigated the effects of dietary protein source and feeding regime (apparent satiation and rationed) on growth performance, nutrient digestibility, fatty acid (FA) profile, and fillet quality traits in rainbow trout. A stock of 1200 juvenile trout (mean weight 114.6±0.2 g) were...

Abstract

In response to the limitation in the global supply of fish meal, the traditional protein source used in aquaculture feed, efforts have increasingly been focused on the use of alternative protein sources of plant origin. However, plant ingredients may cause growth retardation in aquaculture fish...

Abstract

Apparent digestibility coefficients (ADCs) of nine protein ingredients were determined for pirarucu Arapaima gigas, a Neotropical fish species with great aquaculture potential in the Amazon. ADCs of crude protein, energy and dry matter were determined by feces sedimentation in cylindrical-conical...
