Abstract

In response to the limitation in the global supply of fish meal, the traditional protein source used in aquaculture feed, efforts have increasingly been focused on the use of alternative protein sources of plant origin. However, plant ingredients may cause growth retardation in aquaculture fish...

Abstract

Major protein sources for feed manufacture have become costly, and this has led to increased cost of products such as aquafeeds. This has dampening effect on fish production especially in developing countries, and has necessitated a search for alternative protein sources in processed feeds. The...

Abstract

It is estimated that about 29 million tonnes of farmed fish and crustaceans (44.5 percent of the total global aquaculture production in 2007) is dependent upon the supply of external nutrient inputs provided in the form of fresh feed items, farm-made feeds or commercially manufactured feeds. Total...

Abstract

In 2011, aquaculture accounted for almost 64 million MT of fish, crustaceans and mollusks (FAO, 2012). Fish meal has historically been the protein source of choice in aquatic feeds, but global supplies have reached a plateau making it less available and more expensive. As a consequence, the use of...

Abstract

High protein distillers dried grains (HPDDG) is a co-product of ethanol production that uses prefractionation technology. A 14-week nutrition trial of HPDDG with rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss: initial weight=7.5-7.7 g fish-1) was conducted to evaluate the effect of replacing corn gluten meal...

Abstract

Squid liver and scallop-mid gut glands, which are generated and discarded as waste from the Japanese common squid and Japanese scallop, are rich in amino acids and lipids. However, the squid liver and scallop mid-gut glands contain cadmium (Cd) which is generally known as a harmful heavy metal for...

Abstract

Seafood continues to be an important protein source in many less developed countries, and over the past decade, the proportion of per capita seafood consumption produced by aquaculture has steadily grown to nearly half. Capture fisheries production has declined in recent years, and projections are...
