Abstract

Due to its high protein synthesis and deposition rates, skeletal muscle protein deposition is a major determinant of fish growth. Dietary protein complexity is likely to influence protein utilization and deposition in skeletal muscle, possibly affecting fish myogenesis. In this study, three...

Abstract

Apparent digestibility coefficients (ADCs) of processed agro-food by-products were assessed in European seabass (Dicentrarchus labrax). Each experimental diet was obtained by replacing 300 g/kg of a commercial-based diet used as reference (REF) with a test ingredient: wheat germ (GERM), okara meal...

Abstract

Purpose: This study performs an exploratory comparative evaluation of various animal and vegetable protein and lipid sources, used as feed in the aquaculture industry. The ingredients studied include fishmeal (FM) and fish oil (FO) from fisheries by-products, meal and fat by-products from poultry...

Abstract

The replacement of fish meal (FM) by increasing levels of plant protein (PP) sources 50% (PP50), 75% (PP75) and 100% (PP100) was compared to a control diet (FM) containing fish meal as the main protein source in ongrowing Senegalese sole (mean initial body weight:106 g±15). These four diets were...

Abstract

Given its complex metamorphosis and digestive system ontogeny, Senegalese sole larvae capacity to digest and utilize dietary protein is likely to change throughout development. In the present study, we hypothesized that the manipulation of dietary protein complexity may affect Senegalese sole...

Abstract

The effects of different dietary inclusion levels (0, 5 and 10%) of IMTA-cultivated Gracilaria vermiculophylla on rainbow trout growth performance and flesh quality traits were evaluated. Flesh chemical composition (moisture, protein, lipid, vitamin E and iodine contents), sensory attributes and...

Abstract

The present study evaluates the long term (5 months) effects of feeding vegetable oil-based diets to Senegalese sole (Solea senegalensis) until market size. Extruded isonitrogenous and isoenergetic diets (56% crude protein and 20 kJ/g) were formulated to substitute 0 (CTRL), 50 (VO50) and 100%...

Abstract

A growth trial was conducted to test three isonitrogenous diets (59% crude protein, dry matter basis) for Senegalese sole during the ongrowing stage. A control diet (S-15) based on a commercial diet for sole (15% crude fat, 23 kJ g-1 energy) was compared with a plant protein based diet (S-15PP)...

Abstract

A growth trial was conducted with the aim of developing a practical, environmentally sustainable and cost-effective plant-protein-based diet for Senegalese sole juveniles without compromising growth or protein deposition. A reference diet contained fish meal as the main protein source (F45,...

Abstract

To be able to study nutrient requirement and utilization in any species, a diet supporting normal feed intake and growth equally well as a traditional fish meal-based diet is needed. Additionally the formulation of the diet should allow low levels of the nutrient under study. When studying the...
