Abstract

In response to the limitation in the global supply of fish meal, the traditional protein source used in aquaculture feed, efforts have increasingly been focused on the use of alternative protein sources of plant origin. However, plant ingredients may cause growth retardation in aquaculture fish...

AbstractFull Text

Reaching food security is in general one of the main goals in Developing Countries, especially in Africa. In those countries, a deficiency of protein is being experienced due to the lack of diversification of the food supply by the most part of the population. Fishes are beings which have the...

Abstract

Senegalese sole farming is gaining "momentum" and the development of an optimised diet is pivotal to ensure its competitive and sustainable commercial culture. The lower fish performance often observed when replacing large amounts of dietary fishmeal by plant protein sources may result from an...

Abstract

Major protein sources for feed manufacture have become costly, and this has led to increased cost of products such as aquafeeds. This has dampening effect on fish production especially in developing countries, and has necessitated a search for alternative protein sources in processed feeds. The...

Abstract

It is estimated that about 29 million tonnes of farmed fish and crustaceans (44.5 percent of the total global aquaculture production in 2007) is dependent upon the supply of external nutrient inputs provided in the form of fresh feed items, farm-made feeds or commercially manufactured feeds. Total...

Abstract

In 2011, aquaculture accounted for almost 64 million MT of fish, crustaceans and mollusks (FAO, 2012). Fish meal has historically been the protein source of choice in aquatic feeds, but global supplies have reached a plateau making it less available and more expensive. As a consequence, the use of...

AbstractFull Text

A total number of 180 Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) fry (average body weight was 3.0 g/fish) were randomly divided to six experimental groups (30 in each) in three replicates (10 in each) to evaluate the use of different protein sources in combination with protein-rich ethanol by-product...

Abstract

A refined formulated feed for the grow-out culture of tropical abalone Haliotis asinina was evaluated to assess its suitability for a shorter culture period (<8 mo). Refinement procedures focused on the application of additional binder (sodium alginate), use of different feed forms (molo and noodle forms), and incorporation of Spirulina spp. as alternate protein source in partial replacement of other protein...

AbstractFull Text

Tilapia is an unique fish in the inland fish production of Sri Lanka with maximum contribution coming reservoir fisheries catches. There is a possibility to enhance tilapia aquaculture further through other systems of aquaculture practices. However, feed cost is the highest operating cost in the ...

Abstract

High protein distillers dried grains (HPDDG) is a co-product of ethanol production that uses prefractionation technology. A 14-week nutrition trial of HPDDG with rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss: initial weight=7.5-7.7 g fish-1) was conducted to evaluate the effect of replacing corn gluten meal...
