Abstract

Costs of compounded diets containing fish meal as a primary protein source can be expected to rise as fish meal prices increase in response to static supply and growing demand. Alternatives to fish meal are needed to reduce production costs in many aquaculture enterprises. Some plant proteins are...

Abstract

A feeding trial was conducted to determine the effects of dietary crude protein (CP) level and digestible energy-to-protein (DE:P) ratio on the growth performance and body composition of palmetto bass (female white bass Morone saxatilis × male striped bass M. chrysops). Ten soybean-meal-based diets ...

Abstract

An experiment was conducted to determine the long-term effects of an all-plant protein diet on production characteristics (harvest yield, dressing percentage and body composition) of catfish, I. punctatus, taken from top-harvested, multiple-stocked ponds over a 2.5-year period of continuous...

Abstract

The alternative protein supplements that could be used to reduce the cost of formulated crayfish diets were evaluated. Red swamp crayfish (Procambarus clarkii) were held in the laboratory for 9 weeks and fed on 30% CP diets containing isonitrogenous mixtures of plant and animal protein in a 65:35...
