Abstract

The evaluation of alternative protein sources in aquafeeds is a priority in the aquaculture industry. Moreover, carbon sources in biofloc systems can directly affects the nutritional composition of flocs and consequently improve the shrimp growth. In this context, the aim of the present study was...

Abstract

The apparent digestibility coefficients (ADC) of six practical protein ingredients, Chilean fish meal (FM), soy protein concentrate (SPC), poultry by-product meal (PBM), corn gluten meal (CGM), meat and bone meal (MBM), and hydrolyzed feather meal (HFM), were determined for juvenile white shrimp (...

Abstract

The use of a yeast-based alternative protein source (NuPro) for shrimp feeding was studied using Pacific white shrimp Litopenaeus vannamei raised under organically certified production practices. NuPro contains a well-balanced amino acid profile and a crude protein level of <50%. Four 1.8-hectare ponds were stocked with PL12-16 Pacific white shrimp at a rate of 180 000 PL/pond. Three ponds were randomly assigned to the diet containing NuPro, while one pond was designated as control and was given traditional fish meal-based diet. Compost from a dairy herd was applied at a rate of 51 kg/ha every two weeks. Initially, feed was applied at 18...

Abstract

Since nutrition demands a high percentage of production costs in shrimp culture, the development of dietary strategies such as the inclusion of vegetable protein sources, is a very important tool. Thus, digestibility of alternative feedstuffs for evaluating its dietary potential as shrimp feed...

Abstract

Fish meal (FM) has long been considered an essential ingredient for the formulation of shrimp feeds. Until recently, 12%FM was considered a minimum amount, below which weight gain would become reduced due to a reduction in feed intake. In order to test this perceived minimum value, an experiment...
