AbstractFull Text

The utilization of corn gluten meal (CGM) was evaluated as a partial fish meal (FM) substitute in practical diets for gilthead sea bream juveniles. Four test diets (isonitrogenous and isocaloric, 52% protein and 10% lipid, 19 kJ/g diet) containing increasing levels of CGM were formulated to replace ...
