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

The production of fish meal in Nigeria from the wild sources has for some period now been dwindling and when available are very expensive, because most of the fish meal used in fish feed formulation are imported. Hence viable alternatives have to be found for the sustainability of the aquaculture...

Abstract

Three diets were evaluated for growth, production and economic performance of the Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus, after a culture period of 160 days at the Aquaculture Research and Development Centre (ARDEC), Akosombo, Ghana. Locally available agro-industrial by-products were used to compound...

Abstract

Utilization of plant protein sources in aquaculture have continued to produce more promising results towards alleviating high cost of feeding. This study examined the utilization of Leucaena leucocephala seed meal (LSM) for sustainable fish production. Six isonitrogenous; 40% crude protein diets...
