Abstract

This study examined the potential of using the freshwater shrimp, Caridina nilotica (CNM), and mung beans, Vigna radiata (VRM), to replace Rastrineobola argentea fishmeal (RAF) as the primary protein source in fish feeds in East Africa. Six diets with varying proportions of RAF, CNM, VRM and full...

Abstract

Aquaculture, an important source for animal protein utilizes a lot of fishmeal regarded as the best protein source in fish feeds. For making feeds, aquaculture sector alone consumed the equivalent of about 23.8 million metric tons (mmt) of fish or 87% of nonfood fish by 2006. By 2011, the non-food...

Abstract

Four animal protein sources were cultured, processed and analysed for their basic nutritive values in comparison with the conventional clupeid fish meal. The clupeid fish meal had the highest crude protein (71.64%), and unskinned-dried tadpole meal had the lowest value (43.50%). A significant...

Abstract

Palm kernel and soyabean cake were used to substitute a fish meal-based standard diet at 90, 70, 50, 30 or 0% inclusion levels, and fed to 18 groups of O. niloticus (10/tank) in two 18-week trials. Initial weights of fish used were 7.2-7.4 and 4.5-6.4 g, respectively. Growth performance and feed...

Abstract

Dry diets containing fish meal (C-FM) or dried fermented fish silage and soyabean meal blend (1:1, w/w) (C-FS) as the sole protein source, were fed to triplicate groups of juvenile C. gariepinus (10.8±0.3 g, 30 fish/tank) at 5% body weight daily, for 70 days. Catfish fed on the C-FS diet showed...
