AbstractFull Text

The use of organic compost, coupled with stocking rates that can be certified under organic production guidelines, points to a novel, alternative culture system and methodology that could save the US shrimp industry. Presently, shrimp producers in the US simply cannot compete with imports due to...

AbstractFull Text

This article discusses an alternative protein source (NuPro) not only for herbivorous and omnivorous fish species but also for high level marine carnivores such as the cobia ( Rachycentron canadum), a truly novel and potentially lucrative product.

AbstractFull Text

This article presents three separate studies on the use of NuPro, an organically certified yeast product, as an alternative protein source for tilapia Oreochromis niloticus, Pacific white shrimp and cobia Rachycentron canadum. The trial in tilapia showed that NuPro can effectively replace 100% of...

Abstract

A six-week feeding trial was conducted to evaluate the use of a yeast-based, certified organic protein source as a replacement for fish meal in diets for cobia. Five experimental diets were formulated to provide 40% crude protein and 11% dietary lipid (dry matter basis) with the yeast-based protein ...

Abstract

An eight week feeding trial was conducted to examine the impacts of organically certifiable alternate protein sources on growth, feed efficiency, biological indices, fillet proximate composition and fillet quality in juvenile cobia. Diets were formulated to be isonitrogenous and isocaloric. The...

Abstract

The use of a yeast-based alternative protein source (NuPro) for shrimp feeding was studied using Pacific white shrimp Litopenaeus vannamei raised under organically certified production practices. NuPro contains a well-balanced amino acid profile and a crude protein level of <50%. Four 1.8-hectare ponds were stocked with PL12-16 Pacific white shrimp at a rate of 180 000 PL/pond. Three ponds were randomly assigned to the diet containing NuPro, while one pond was designated as control and was given traditional fish meal-based diet. Compost from a dairy herd was applied at a rate of 51 kg/ha every two weeks. Initially, feed was applied at 18...

Abstract

Achieving true sustainability in fish farming requires the replacement of most of the fish meal and fish oil utilized as feedstuffs. The present experiment reports 2 feeding trials that resulted in the total replacement of fish meal and fish oil in juvenile cobia (Rachycentron canadum). The first...

Abstract

Two separate 8 week feeding trials were conducted to examine the impacts of fish meal replacement with an organically certifiable yeast-based protein source with and without supplementation of methionine, tryptophan, and taurine to diets for juvenile cobia. In the first trial, diets were formulated ...
