Abstract

Distillers' grains with solubles (DGS) are reviewed as a less expensive plant protein source in fish diets to replace fish meal partially or totally. Although soyabean meal has been considered the most nutritious plant protein source, growth tends to be reduced in fish fed on diets in which it...

Abstract

Salmon farming economics and the role of rapeseed/canola protein products in replacing traditional proteins in feeds are reviewed. Salmon farming profitability is presently marginal in North America. Feed accounts for about half of farm operating costs, and 67% of feed cost originates from protein...

Abstract

This chapter begins with a review of world salmon production from aquaculture throughout the temperate zones and particularly Norway, Chile, Japan and North America. Discussion covers: high-energy, low-polluting feeds; fish farm effluents; alternative protein sources (including fish, soyabean,...

Abstract

The nutrition of larval fish is reviewed under the following headings: microparticulate diets with protein sources simulating the essential amino acid patterns of fish larvae; soyabean peptide in microparticulate diets; importance of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) for marine fish larvae; effects of...

Abstract

Methods to assess protein digestibility of fish feeds are reviewed under the following headings: biological value of feed proteins; digestibility of alternative proteins by salmonids; in vitro methods of measuring protein digestibility; protein digestion in fish; in vitro digestibility of feed...

Abstract

High (>40%) dietary levels of soya protein, isonitrogenously and isoenergetically substituted for fish meal, result in diminished fish growth and efficiency of feed utilization. Much of this has been attributed to antinutritional factors (ANF) in soya protein, such as protease inhibitors, lectins...

Abstract

Nutritional requirements of different species of penaeid shrimp are reviewed. Dietary protein requirements range from 30 to 60% depending on factors such as species, size, protein source, level of non-protein energy and feeding management. Shrimp require the same 10 essential amino acids as...
