Abstract

This experiment was conducted to study the effects of different protein sources on growth performance and feed intake regulation of pre-adult grass carp (initial body weight: 153.4±0.3 g), a herbivorous species. Two isonitrogenous, isoenergetic with essential amino acids and available phosphorus...

Abstract

Fish meal sparing is more difficult for nutritionally demanding carnivorous fishes, but economic considerations and the limited supply of fish meal continue to incentivize investigations of alternative protein sources for aquafeeds. A promising alternative to traditional, marine-origin fish meal is ...

Abstract

A 70-day feeding experiment was conducted to assess the effects of α-ketoglutarate (AKG) supplementation in different protein sources of diets on the growth performance, nitrogen metabolism and related gene expression of mirror carp. Two kinds of protein diets (soybean meal protein source and fish...

Abstract

Invertebrate meals (e.g. polychaetes and insects) present novel and sustainable high-quality nutrient sources for use in fish feed formulations. To test this innovative source, an eleven-week feeding trial was conducted evaluating the effects of replacing the fishmeal (FM) component as an example...

Abstract

A 56-day feeding trial was conducted to evaluate the effects of replacing dietary soybean meal (SBM) with cottonseed meal (CSM) for juvenile common carp, Cyprinus carpio. Four isonitrogenous (34% crude protein) and isolipidic (6% crude lipid) diets were formulated by replacing 0%, 50%, 75%, and...

Abstract

This study was conducted to investigate the effects of dietary supplementation of enzymatic hydrolysates of defatted silkworm pupa (EHDSP) on growth performance, body composition and non-specific immunity of juvenile mirror carp (Cyprinus carpio var. specularis). The control diet (EHDSP0) was...

Abstract

Rain tree (Samanea saman) is a fast-growing tropical tree, abundantly grown in India under plantation programmes. The present study was carried out to evaluate the effects of processed rain tree pod (RTP) in the diets of Catla catla fry. Chemical analysis results indicated that RTP is a good source ...

Abstract

An 9-week growth experiment was conducted to estimate the myo-inositol (MI) requirement for grass carp fingerlings (Ctenopharyngodon idella). Half-purified basal diets were formulated using the fish meal, glutin and casein as the protein sources. MI was supplemented at 0, 50, 100, 200, 400, 800,...
