Abstract

Fish meal is still the main protein in feed formulations, unsustainable development and overfishing practices reduce captures since last decade. An increasing demand for high quality feed for aquaculture force the evaluation of new protein sources. Jatropha curcas meal was used in a 45 day feeding...

Abstract

The search for alternative protein sources in fish diets is necessary because of the wide variation in the price and availability of some traditional protein ingredients. An experiment lasting 45 days was conducted in a water recirculation system of juvenile Nile tilapia (initial weight of 16.2±0.1 ...

Abstract

Moringa is one of promising plant protein sources for aquaculture. The fluctuating results surrounding the optimal feeding level in fish diets were the motivation behind this study. A 75-day feeding trail was conducted to evaluate the effect of feeding different levels of raw moringa (Moringa...

AbstractFull Text

The search for alternative foods that can replace fishmeal in commercial diets formulation is constant, especially those that have a good amino acid profile and digestibility coefficient. The worm meal seems to be a good protein source in substitution, even partial, of fish meal in diets for ...

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

A 24-week feeding trial was conducted in concrete tanks with Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus (L.) with an average initial weight and length of 50.87±6.03 g and 14.4±0.45 cm, respectively, to examine the effect of two protein sources and two feeding frequencies on growth performance, production...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to determine the coefficients of apparent and true digestibility of protein and amino acids of five feedstuffs (corn, wheat bran, soybean meal, corn gluten meal and fish meal) in 900 sex-reversed Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) of the Thai strain during the...

AbstractFull Text

The feasibility of autochthonous sourcing of fish protein for the enrichment of supplemental feed as commonly formulated for feeding during Heterobranchus longifilis and Oreochromis niloticus polyculture was examined. The feed had 12.9% protein content and was applied in treatment 1. In treatment...

Abstract

The significant effect of using distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS), one of the main co-products obtained from the fermentation of cereal grains as an ingredient and alternative protein source in formulating feeds for animals with emphasis on fish nutrition was discussed. The chemical...
