Abstract

The economic and environmental sustainability of aquaculture depends significantly on the nature and quality of the fish feed used. One of the main criticisms of aquaculture is the need to use significant amounts of fish meal, and other marine protein sources, in such feed. Unfortunately, the...

Abstract

The present study tested a partial substitution of fish meal (FM) with increasing levels of full-fat Tenebrio molitor larvae meal (TM) in diets for rainbow trout (115.6±14.0 g initial body weight) on body morphological and marketable characteristics, and on fillets physical and chemical traits....

Abstract

A feeding trial was designed to examine the potential of yellow mealworm, Tenebrio molitor, as a locally available renewable protein source in juvenile mandarin fish feed. Triplicate groups of fish (Initial mean body weight±S E.; 20.8±0.05 g) were assigned to each of four isonitrogenous (50%) and...

Abstract

Mealworm meal (MM) was evaluated for its potential as a future protein source for the farmed shrimp Litopenaeus vannamei. The apparent digestibility coefficients (ADC) were determined using a reference diet and a test diet that contained 85% reference diet and 15% MM, both contained 0.5% chromic...

Abstract

This study evaluated the effects of diets containing Tenebrio molitor (TM) larvae meal in partial substitution of fishmeal (FM) on growth performances, marketable, physical and chemical traits of wild-caught blackspot sea bream, a valuable finfish species potentially candidate for Mediterranean ...

Abstract

Fishmeal (FM) and soy meal (SM) are the most common protein sources used in fish feed, but they are associated with environmental, economic or production problems. Insects could be an interesting alternative source of protein. This work investigates the nutritive value of Tenebrio molitor meal (TM) ...
