Abstract

Besides fishmeal, soybean protein is the most common protein source in aquafeed. However, the sustainability of soybean production is criticized. Due to the rapid development of aquaculture, the increasing demand for high value feed proteins has initiated research into alternative and more...

Abstract

The main goal of this research was to analyse in vitro compatibility of Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) digestive proteinases and enzymes recovered from species comprising fishery waste as Pleoticus muelleri, Artemesia longinaris and Patagonotothen ramsayi. It evaluated the use of exogenous...

Abstract

Black soybeans contain high amount of antioxidant, such as phenolic compounds and anthocyanins, in their seed coat. This study aimed to investigate the beneficial effect of black soybean seed coat (BSSC) on the growth of juvenile hybrid tilapia. There were four experimental diets: casein based diet ...

Abstract

This study examined the potential of using the freshwater shrimp, Caridina nilotica (CNM), and mung beans, Vigna radiata (VRM), to replace Rastrineobola argentea fishmeal (RAF) as the primary protein source in fish feeds in East Africa. Six diets with varying proportions of RAF, CNM, VRM and full...

Abstract

Black soldier fly larvae (BSFL) meal, produced from the larvae of Hermetia illucens, has shown promise as a fish meal (FM) replacement in diets for rainbow trout, catfish and tilapia, but has not been examined as an alternative protein source in shrimp diets. Six isonitrogenous (35% crude protein,...

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

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...

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...
