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 ...

Abstract

A feeding trial was designed to examine the potential of yellow mealworm, Tenebrio molitor, as a locally available renewable protein source in juvenile mandarin fish feed. Triplicate groups of fish (Initial mean body weight±S E.; 20.8±0.05 g) were assigned to each of four isonitrogenous (50%) and...

Abstract

Besides fishmeal, soybean protein is the most common protein source in aquafeed. However, the sustainability of soybean production is criticized. Due to the rapid development of aquaculture, the increasing demand for high value feed proteins has initiated research into alternative and more...

Abstract

The perception of key players in the fish farming sector towards the use of insects is important for their acceptance to adopt insects as an alternative protein source to the expensive fish meal. Perception was established through a cross-sectional study of 208 fish farmers and 71 fish feed traders ...

Abstract

The present study tested a partial substitution of fish meal (FM) with increasing levels of full-fat Tenebrio molitor larvae meal (TM) in diets for rainbow trout (115.6±14.0 g initial body weight) on body morphological and marketable characteristics, and on fillets physical and chemical traits....

Abstract

Limited availability of sustainable feed ingredients is a serious concern in salmon aquaculture. Insects may become an important, sustainable resource for expanding the raw material repertoire. Herein, we present data from an 8-week feeding trial with pre-smolt Atlantic salmon (initial body weight...

Abstract

The rapid expansion of the aquaculture industry with carnivorous fish such as salmon has been accompanied by an equally rapid development in alternative feed ingredients. This has outpaced the ability of prevailing authentication method to trace the diet and origins of salmon products at the retail ...

Abstract

Fish farming is faced with the challenge of high cost of feeds because of the cost of high quality protein needed for formulation of the feeds. Thus, there is urgent need for alternative protein sources. The effects of substituting freshwater shrimp meal (FWSM) with black soldier fly larvae meal...
