Abstract

The cost of compound feed is a constraint in intensive fish and poultry farming, contributing 60-80% of the total production costs, 70% of which is due to fish and soy meal used as protein source. This review presents the extent to which insects have been utilised as an alternative protein source...

Abstract

A laboratory study was conducted to compare different animal protein sources in diets containing 32% protein for channel catfish, Ictalurus punctatus. The experimental diets were practical-type diets and formulated to meet or exceed all known nutrient requirements for channel catfish. 20 juvenile...

Abstract

A feeding trial was conducted with juvenile (15 g) sunshine bass (M. chrysops × M. saxatilis) to evaluate growth and body composition when fed for 8 weeks on diets varying in fish meal (FM 0, 7.5, 15 and 30%). Six practical floating diets were formulated to contain 40% protein and similar energy...

Abstract

To reduce long-term dependence upon fishery resources, we evaluated selected terrestrial byproducts as alternatives to fish meal for rearing juvenile (mean weight, 2.3±0.1 g) red drum Sciaenops ocellatus. Over a 6-week feeding trial, 10 test diets (basal diet and 9 test diets) were formulated on an ...

Abstract

Seven isonitrogenous (40% CP) and isoenergetic (gross energy 18.6 kJ/g) diets were formulated to investigate the utilization of dates and date pits as carbohydrate sources for tilapia, Oreochromis aureus, fry (0.19±0.003 g) and to evaluate the complete substitution of fish meal with poultry...

Abstract

A co-extruded soyabean poultry byproduct meal (CEPM) and a flash-dried poultry byproduct meal (FD-PBM) were evaluated as replacements for fish meal in a practical diet formulated to contain 32% crude protein and 8% lipid. Each meal was substituted for menhaden fish meal on an iso-nitrogenous basis...

Abstract

A combined animal protein meal for fish was produced using byproducts and tankage of livestock, poultry and aquatic animals. Contents of CP, crude fat, Ca, P of the combination meal were equal to those of Peruvian fish meal, with a cost reduction of 20%. Juvenile Prussian carp (Carassius auratus...
