Abstract

Fifty-six days feeding trial was conducted to evaluate the effect of Cirina butyrospermi caterpillar meal (CBM) as protein source in replacement of fish meal (FM) for Clarias gariepinus fingerlings. Six hundred African catfish (initial mean weight=2.42±0.01 g) were fed with four approximate...

Abstract

Animal by-products including Feather Meal (FTM) have shown very promising findings when included in aquaculture feeds. However, their use is limited to a few fish species only. More studies are needed to investigate the full potential of this by-product. In the present study, a total of six diets...

Abstract

This study was investigated the utilization of agama lizard meat meal (Agama agama) as dietary protein source in the diets of Clarias gariepinus fingerlings (MW±SE=33.48 g±0.13). The fingerlings were fed four Isonitrogenous and Isocaloric diets containing blends of agama lizard meal in percentages...

Abstract

Ten experimental diets were formulated to meet the 40% crude protein requirement of the African mudcatfish, Clarias gariepinus. In six of the diets fishmeal served as the main protein source while in the remaining four diets fishmeal was supplemented with either GNC or soybean cake to make...

Abstract

The optimization of protein content in earthworm-based fish feed formulation was investigated in the study. Full factorial design (FFD) and central composite design (CCD) were used as a statistical tool to screen the range of the selected parameters and to optimize the process, respectively. Three...

Abstract

Mature winged bean, P. tetragonolobus, seeds were quick-cooked and the full-fat meal derived was used to completely replace menhaden fish meal as a dietary protein source for the African catfish, C. gariepinus. Five dry practical diets (CP 400 g/kg and gross energy 17.5 kJ/g dry diet) containing...

Abstract

The potential incorporation of brewery single cell proteins (BSCPs) in feeds for Clarias gariepinus and Oreochromis niloticus are described using a series of feeding experiments. The findings show that BSCPs are a good protein source for inclusion in aquaculture feeds for improving growth rate and ...

Abstract

Physiological aspects related to the capacity for digestion of food by fish larvae were studied. The protein quality in decapsulated cysts and nauplii of Artemia was also evaluated, and the feasibility of using cysts as the protein source in microdiets for fish larvae was studied using the African...

Abstract

Mature winged bean (Psophocarpus tetragonolobus) (cultivar Tpt26) seeds were roasted or autoclaved and their meals evaluated as a dietary protein source for the African catfish, C. gariepinus. Five dry practical diets (400 g protein/kg and 17.5 kJ gross energy/g dry diet) containing menhaden fish...

Abstract

Cooked winged bean (Psophocarpus tetragonolobus and P. palustris) meals were evaluated as dietary protein sources for the African catfish. Three dry diets (400 g/kg CP, 4.2 kcal/kg gross energy) containing cooked soyabean seed meal or each of the cooked winged bean meals, as total replacement for...
