Abstract

It is estimated that about 29 million tonnes of farmed fish and crustaceans (44.5 percent of the total global aquaculture production in 2007) is dependent upon the supply of external nutrient inputs provided in the form of fresh feed items, farm-made feeds or commercially manufactured feeds. Total...

Abstract

Shrimp meal (SM), blood meal (BM), meat and bone meal (MBM), BM + MBM mix and poultry byproduct meal (PBM) replaced FM in 6 isonitrogenous (30% CP), isoenergetic (400 kcal gross energy/100 g) diets. O. niloticus fingerlings (12.5 g) stocked into 1.9-m3 outdoor concrete tanks (2 × 1.2 × 0.80 m) were ...

Abstract

Soyabean meal (SBM), spirulina meal (SM) and chicken offal meal (COM) were evaluated as protein sources for silver sea bream (Rhabdosargus sarba) fingerlings. SBM and SM were incorporated into isonitrogenous (40% protein), isoenergetic (gross energy 450 kcal/100 g) diets to replace 25, 50, 75 and...

Abstract

Cotton seed meals (CSM) as protein sources for Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus, were evaluated. Corticated CSM (CC) and decorticated CSM (DC), with or without crystalline smallcap˜L-lysine supplementation, were incorporated into practical, isoenergetic (gross energy 475 kcal/100 g) diets...
