Abstract

Fish meal (FM) is the main protein source in aquaculture diets owing to its palatability and quality. Available quantities of FM have remained constant for the past several decades; however, demand has dramatically increased due to its inclusion in diets used for the global aquaculture industry....

Abstract

Two feeding trials were conducted in a closed system with Nile tilapia Oreochromis niloticus fry (mean weight, 0.10 g; experiment 1) and juveniles (mean weight, 2.84 g; experiment 2) to examine the effects of total replacement of fish meal (FM), with and without supplementation of DL-methionine...

Abstract

Quantities of fish meal (FM) have remained level for the past several decades; however, demand has dramatically increased because of its inclusion in all animal production as a high-quality protein source. Soybean meal (SBM) is the most widely used plant-protein ingredient for replacing various...

Abstract

Distillers' grains with solubles (DGS) are reviewed as a less expensive plant protein source in fish diets to replace fish meal partially or totally. Although soyabean meal has been considered the most nutritious plant protein source, growth tends to be reduced in fish fed on diets in which it...

Abstract

In an effort to reduce fish meal (FM) use in diets for sunshine bass, a feeding trial was conducted. Four practical floating diets were formulated to contain 40% protein, similar energy levels, and without FM. A fifth diet was formulated to contain 30% FM and served as the control diet. Ten fish...

Abstract

Australian red claw crayfish Cherax quadricarinatus is considered a popular crustacean species in several countries around the world because of its large size potential and resemblance to high-priced American lobsters. However, little is currently known of the nutrient requirements and practical...

Abstract

A feeding trial was conducted with juvenile (15 g) sunshine bass (M. chrysops × M. saxatilis) to evaluate growth and body composition when fed for 8 weeks on diets varying in fish meal (FM 0, 7.5, 15 and 30%). Six practical floating diets were formulated to contain 40% protein and similar energy...

Abstract

Juvenile channel catfish about 10 g were fed on isonitrogenous (36% crude protein) and isoenergetic (digestible energy 2.7 kcal/g), soyabean meal diets containing 0, 35 and 70% distillers' grains (DGS) or 70% distillers' grains plus 0.4% crystalline smallcap˜L-lysine (DGS+LYS) for 12 weeks. Fish ...
