Abstract

Scientific research has examined the possibility of replacing fishmeal with alternative protein sources in feed for fish. The literature indicates that insects are an eco-friendly nutrient-rich alternative to fishmeal. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of including insects in ...

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

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...

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 utilisation of insect as ingredients for animal feeds has gained considerable interest recently. For example, the potential of black soldier fly (Hermetia illucens; BSF) larvae as a cheap alternative protein source for animal feeds seems to show promising perspectives, especially for poultry...

Abstract

BACKGROUND: Diet implementation with insect meal has aroused increased attention in aquaculture considering the advantages of this new protein source. The effect of Hermetia illucens meal (HI) inclusion in diets on rainbow trout physical-chemical and sensory properties was evaluated. Three diets...

Abstract

Feed security, feed quality and issues surrounding the safety of raw materials are always of interest to all livestock farmers, feed manufacturers and competent authorities. These concerns are even more important when alternative feed ingredients, new product developments and innovative feeding...

Abstract

Insect protein meals are considered as a promising alternative feedstuff in aquafeeds, but until now the effects induced by its dietary inclusion on histological features, gut mucin composition and oxidative stress in fish are still not assessed. In the present study, we describe these effects...

Abstract

Major protein sources for feed manufacture have become costly, and this has led to increased cost of products such as aquafeeds. This has dampening effect on fish production especially in developing countries, and has necessitated a search for alternative protein sources in processed feeds. The...

Abstract

A feeding trial was carried out to assess the effect of partially replacing fish meal (FM) by Black soldier fly pre-pupae meal (HM) in diets for European seabass Dicentrarchus labrax juveniles. A FM-based diet was used as a control and three other diets were formulated to include 6.5%, 13%, and...
