Abstract

We report feeding studies on hybrid fish (carnivorous × omnivorous) to determine the interactions between protein sources during diet selection trials. We also examined behavioural rhythms (feeding and locomotor activity) using a self-feeding system mounted with a feeder connected to an infrared...

AbstractFull Text

Fish meal, and soybean meal, are the most common sources of protein used in fish feed formulations around the world. These ingredients are widely use because of their high protein contents and well balanced amino acid profiles. The increase in the demand for traditional protein sources and thus the ...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to evaluate the best level of substitution of fish meal (FM) by soybean meal (SBM), as protein source in practical diets for juveniles of Macrobrachium amazonicum. Juveniles, with initial mean weight of 0.16±0.66 g, were stocked at a density equivalent to 150 juveniles m-2 ...

Abstract

Use of peanut meal as an alternative protein source in diets for Channel Catfish Ictalurus punctatus was evaluated in a 9-week study under controlled laboratory conditions. Five practical diets (28% crude protein and 6% crude lipid) were formulated to contain 0, 10, 15, 20, and 25% peanut meal as a ...

Abstract

Fermentation is considered a promising method to improve the limitedutilization of plant protein sources. In the present study, Shewanella sp. MR-7, isolated from the intestine of juvenile turbot, was used to ferment selected plant sources. We investigated the apparent digestibility coefficients...

Abstract

Water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes) is a fast growing invasive aquatic plant often covers water bodies. It has been a problem worldwide. Fast-growing and rapidly expanding omnivorous tilapia is likely the suitable species for aquaculture. Since the fish farmers are adversely affected by high cost ...

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

This experiment was conducted to determine the apparent digestibility coefficients (ADC) of dry matter (DM), crude protein (CP), amino acid (AA) and gross energy (GE) of Peruvian red fish meal, soybean meal, sunflower meal and corn gluten meal in juvenile turbot (Scophthalmus maximus. L) and the...
