Abstract

Jatropha seed cake (JSC) is an excellent source of protein but does contain some antinutritional factors (ANF) that can act as toxins and thus negatively affect the growth and health status of fish. While this can limit the use of JSC, detoxified Jatropha protein isolate (DJPI) may be a better...

Abstract

The increasing need for aquafeed resources and the finite availability of conventional feed resources are making it necessary to search for alternative high-protein resources that are not used as human food. The earthworm Perionyx excavatus was tested as a feed ingredient in diets for common carp....

Abstract

This study was conducted to evaluate the suitability of freeze-dried moringa leaf meal, Moringa oleifera, as an alternative protein source for Nile tilapia. Three experimental diets were formulated to contain moringa leaf meal at levels of 10, 20 and 30% of the total dietary protein (Diets 2, 3 and ...

Abstract

Jatropha curcas kernel meal is rich in protein; however, it is toxic. Two durations of detoxification process were investigated: 30 and 60 min; designated as Ja and Jb, respectively. Common carp fingerlings (252 fish; 3.2±0.07 g) were fed diets: control containing fishmeal (FM); S50, Ja50 and Jb50: ...

Abstract

A 7-week feeding trial was conducted in a recirculation system at 27±0.2°C to evaluate the nutritive value of Sesbania aculeata seed meal as a possible protein source in the diet of common carp. Sesbania seed meal was included in the diets at various levels (12%, 24%, 36% and 48% for diets 2, 3, 4...

Abstract

An 8-week feeding trial was conducted in a warm-water recirculation system at 27±0.2°C to evaluate the nutritive value of dhaincha (Sesbania aculeata) seed meal as a possible fish meal substitute in the diet of tilapia. Five isonitrogenous and isoenergetic diets were formulated to contain 32% crude ...

Abstract

The suitability of raw and methanol-extracted moringa (Moringa oleifera Lam.) leaf meal to replace 10%, 20% and 30% of the total fishmeal-based dietary protein in tilapia feeds was tested. Ten isonitrogenous and isocalorific feeds (35% crude protein and 20 MJ kg-1 gross energy), denoted as diets 1...
