Abstract

A refined formulated feed for the grow-out culture of tropical abalone Haliotis asinina was evaluated to assess its suitability for a shorter culture period (<8 mo). Refinement procedures focused on the application of additional binder (sodium alginate), use of different feed forms (molo and noodle forms), and incorporation of Spirulina spp. as alternate protein source in partial replacement of other protein...

Abstract

Inexpensive indigenous raw materials like local fish meal (Thunnus sp.) and cowpea (Vigna unguiculata) meal were tested as substitutes for imported protein sources in experimental diets for P. monodon. No vitamin or mineral premixes were added as supplements except dicalcium phosphate as a source...

Abstract

Four natural ingredient diets similar in nutrient composition (42-44% CP, protein to energy ratio = 115-120 mg/kcal) but differing in protein source, were fed to hatchery-reared catfish in 2 feeding trials. Diets 1 and 2 had higher fish meal content but lower meat and bone meal than the other...
