Abstract

Quantities of fish meal (FM) have remained level for the past several decades; however, demand has dramatically increased because of its inclusion in all animal production as a high-quality protein source. Soybean meal (SBM) is the most widely used plant-protein ingredient for replacing various...

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

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

This study evaluated the effect of dietary protein level on growth performance and haemato-immunological parameters of juvenile genetically improved farm tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus, fed five iso-caloric diets of dietary protein levels 25-45%, formulated using white fish, casein, gelatine,...

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

This study was conducted to determine the effects of dietary protein level on growth performance, body composition, hematological indexes and hepatic non-specific immune indexes of juvenile Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus. Fish meal, soybean meal, cottonseed meal, rapeseed meal, casein and...

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...
