Abstract

Besides fishmeal, soybean protein is the most common protein source in aquafeed. However, the sustainability of soybean production is criticized. Due to the rapid development of aquaculture, the increasing demand for high value feed proteins has initiated research into alternative and more...

AbstractFull Text

A 16-week feeding trial was conducted to observe the growth performance of red hybrid tilapia (Oreochromis sp.) fed two levels (10% and 15%) of feather meal, which replaced 92% and 100% of fishmeal in the diets. Also, the water quality parameters in the recirculating water system were determined...

AbstractFull Text

The use of local feedstuffs to substitute conventional feedstuffs in fish nutrition has been widely studied. However, there is no report to date on the use of by-products from fish processing plants as feed for fish. The lack of locally available feedstuff for aquaculture feeds has encouraged the...

Abstract

Fish represents an important source of proteins and essential micronutrients for human health, and Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) is one of the most widespread aquaculture species grown worldwide to meet the growing demand for fish. In this sense, the use of supplemented diets it is important ...

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

An 11-wk feeding trial was conducted to evaluate three different protein hydrolysates as feed ingredients in high-plant-protein diets for juvenile olive flounder. Five experimental diets were fed to juvenile olive flounder to examine the effect of three different protein hydrolysates on growth...

Abstract

This experiment was conducted in parallel with work in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DR-Congo) with the objective to evaluate the growth performance and production costs of Nile tilapia fed diets formulated using local plant protein sources, and to compare them to those obtained with an...

Abstract

Food waste is a low-cost and nutritious source of feed which could be beneficial to the fishery industry. The objective of this study was to use fermented food wastes as major sources of protein to replace the fish meal used in fish feeds for culturing jade perch (Scortum barcoo) and Nile tilapia (...

Abstract

An 8-week feeding trial was conducted to determine the dietary choline requirement for juvenile hybrid tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus × O. aureus. Purified basal diets were formulated using vitamin-free casein (contained 370 mg choline/kg) as the protein source. Graded levels (0, 100, 200, 400,...
