Abstract

The effects of replacing fish meal with Caridina nilotica as a protein ingredient on growth performance, nutrient utilization, carcass, proximate composition and economic benefits in Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) culture was evaluated. Replacement of the FM with C. nilotica was done at 25%,...

Abstract

To evaluate the effects of different protein sources on the growth of hybrid tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus × O. aureus), three growth trials were conducted. In the present study, four approximately isonitrogenous (24% crude protein) and isoenergetic diets were fed to triplicate groups of 9 fish...

AbstractFull Text

Aquaculture is the fastest expanding food production system in the world. This rapid development largely depends upon the increased production of aqua-feeds, which traditionally rely on fishmeal (FM) as the main protein source. The increasing demand for FM use in animal and fish diets has resulted...

Abstract

This study evaluated the effect of dietary protein level on growth performance and haemato-immunological parameters of juvenile genetically improved farm tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus, fed five iso-caloric diets of dietary protein levels 25-45%, formulated using white fish, casein, gelatine,...

AbstractFull Text

This study was conducted at Moi University, Kenya, to investigate the effect of fish diets on growth, chemical composition and organoleptic quality of farmed Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus), and compared with wild tilapia from Lake Victoria. Fish were grown for six months in triplicates using...

Abstract

To evaluate isolated pea protein as feed ingredient for tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) juveniles, triplicate groups were fed with four isonitrogenous [crude protein: 421.1-427.5 g kg-1 in dry matter (d.m.)] and isoenergetic (gross energy: 20.46-21.06 MJ kg-1 d.m.) diets with varying protein...
