Abstract

Fish meal (FM) is the main protein source in aquaculture diets owing to its palatability and quality. Available quantities of FM have remained constant for the past several decades; however, demand has dramatically increased due to its inclusion in diets used for the global aquaculture industry....

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 was undertaken to evaluate the individual and combined effects of oxygen concentration and diet composition on the growth, nutrient utilization and intestinal morphology of Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus). Two recirculating aquaculture systems were used to create the...

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

We report the beneficial effects of a microbial fermentation process of plant protein sources. To reduce anti-nutritional factors, soybean meal (SM) and cottonseed meal (CM) were fermented with Aspergillus oryzae, a probiotic microorganism, and a 12-wk feeding study was conducted to evaluate the...

Abstract

This study evaluated the effect of partial (50%) and complete replacement (100%) of fishmeal with a mixture of plant protein sources in 25% or 30% protein feeds on the biological performance and production of tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus. Four experimental diets containing soybean meal, alfalfa...

Abstract

Apparent digestibility coefficient (ADC) values for a number of ingredients of plant or animal origin were obtained in order to formulate diets based on such values and to evaluate growth performance of the Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus, fed on 4 experimental diets in which fish meal was...

Abstract

Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) response to attractivity and taste of fourteen food ingredients, classified as animal (shrimp, fish, silkworm and meat meal, integral lyophilized egg and sugar-cane-yeast), vegetable protein (maize gluten, soyabean bran, sunflower meal and cotton bran) and...
