Abstract

Plant protein sources have been identified to have the greatest potential to replace fish meal protein in aquafeeds. However, plant ingredients contain significant quantities of carbohydrates, and the ability of fish to utilize dietary carbohydrates as energy sources for growth is limited. Included ...

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,...

Abstract

An 8-week feeding experiment was conducted to determine the effect of dietary methionine supplementation on intestinal microflora and humoral immune of juvenile Jian carp (initial weight of 9.9±0.0 g) reared in indoor flow-through and aerated aquaria. Eight amino acid test diets (350 g kg-1 crude...

Abstract

The use of dried duckweed, Lemna minor, as a dietary protein source for Cyprinus carpio common carp fry reared in baskets was investigated. Five diets with similar E:P ratios were fed to common carp fry with an average initial weight of 0.29 g for 90 days. A diet containing 5, 10, 15 or 20%...

Abstract

Fingerlings were stocked in eight, 0.1-ha earthen ponds at a density of 4000/ha in the ratio 40% catla (Catla catla), 20% rohu (Labeo rohita), 20% mrigal (Cirrhinus mrigala), 5% mirror carp (Cyprinus carpio var. specularis) and 15% rajpunti (Puntius gonionotus). Inorganic and organic fertilizers...

Abstract

Four extruded isonitrogenous and isoenergetic feed mixtures containing modified pig bristle at 0, 5, 10 and 15%, respectively, replacing fish meal, were evaluated using chemical methods and carp fry in a growth performance study. Body weight and feed conversion efficiency were highest in fry fed on ...
