Abstract

The fast growth of the aquaculture sector worldwide increases the demand for aquafeeds. Since the production of conventional protein sources like fish meal is stagnating due to fully exploited fish stocks, far-reaching sustainable adaptions of production techniques as well as new alternative ...

AbstractFull Text

The study was conducted to compare two plant ingredients as dietary protein sources for rainbow trout on the basis of feed acceptability, survival, growth, feed conversion, nitrogen and phosphorus utilization efficiency and loading. Two extruded diets were formulated with the inclusion of a soybean ...

Abstract

The effect of partial or total dietary substitution of fishmeal (FM) by vegetal protein sources on growth and feed efficiency was carried out in on-growing gilthead sea bream (mean initial weight 131 g). The Control diet (FM 100) contained FM as the primary protein source, while in Diets FM 25 and...

Abstract

The substitution of fish meal protein by plant-source proteins in feed for salmonid grown in aquaculture has become a current worldwide trend due to the sea bioresources exhaustion. Rape and soy are the most promising plant sources for this purpose; they are increasingly used in live-stock raising ...

Abstract

In this study, a feeding trial was conducted to evaluate the effects of adding different levels of sodium butyrate in high plant protein diets on growth performance, nutrient apparent digestibility coefficients and liver antioxidant function of juvenile turbot (Scophthalmus maximus L.), and to...

Abstract

Background: The potential for alternative plant protein sources to replace limited marine ingredients in fish feeds is important for the future of the fish farming industry. However, plant ingredients in fish feeds contain antinutritional factors (ANFs) that can promote gut inflammation (enteritis) ...

Abstract

Fingerlings of Clarias batrachus were fed on six formulated diets with different protein levels, over a period of 100 days to study their protein requirements. Growth and specific growth rate remained low when fed on low protein diets. Highest growth performance was observed in groups fed on 40.25% ...

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 ...
