Abstract

To evaluate the effects of different protein sources on the growth of hybrid tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus × O. aureus), three growth trials were conducted. In the present study, four approximately isonitrogenous (24% crude protein) and isoenergetic diets were fed to triplicate groups of 9 fish...

Abstract

Soybean coproducts are important protein sources in aquaculture because of their amino acid profile. Tilapia can be reared on soybean coproducts as the only source of dietary protein without compromising growth. This study estimated apparent digestibility coefficients for five soybean coproducts...

Abstract

Two consecutive experiments were carried out to investigate the effects of phytoestrogens on sex reversal of Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) larvae. Experiment 1 investigated the effects of phytoestrogen contents of soybean meal (SBM) on sex ratio. Nile tilapia larvae (0.01 g/fish) were fed...

Abstract

The feeding experiment was conducted to evaluate the replacement effect of cystine on methionine at a constant total sulphur amino acid (TSAA) level in practical diets of juvenile Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus). Soybean meal, cottonseed meal and rapeseed meal were used as the main protein...

Abstract

Jackbean, Canavalia ensiformis, seeds were detoxified using eight different wet thermal detoxification methods in either distilled water (5% w/v) or trona (NaCO2.NaHCO3.2H2O) solution. The effects of the detoxification methods on hemagglutinating, antitryptic and urease activities, and on the...

Abstract

This study was conducted to evaluate the suitability of the African Yam bean (S. stenocarpa) as a partial replacement for dietary full fat soyabeans for feeding O. niloticus fingerlings. Five diets were formulated to contain 15, 30, 45 and 60% of the total protein using toasted S. stenocarpa, while ...
