No difference in growth performance of catfish fed on cassava, sorghum or corn

Date
17 July 2017
Abstract

Aquaculture is an important sector in the agriculture industry and is rapidly growing to meet the world's demands for protein source but this sector is challenged with the diverse type of diseases and bacterial infections. Antimicrobial agents have been widely used in fish farming for therapeutic,...

Abstract

Protein derived from fishmeal is the most expensive ingredient in fish feeds. Any reduction and replacement of this ingredient by a less expensive protein source which will produce the same growth performances will contribute significantly to the reduction of fish production cost. Protein-rich U....

Abstract

Two 8-week growth trials were conducted in indoor recirculation system to evaluate the protein requirements for juvenile (3.70±0.20 g) and pre-adult (85.2±0.70 g) gibel carp, Carassius auratus gibelio var. CAS III. Six isoenergetic diets were formulated for each trial using fish meal and casein as ...

Abstract

We compared oxygen consumption (MO2, mg/kg/h) of c. 80 g rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) in an intermittent-flow swim respirometer at 15°C. Before the tests the fish were grown in flow through tanks (15°C) with either fishmeal (FM) or corn gluten meal (CGM) based diets (c. 52% protein) for a...

Abstract

Biofloc meal is a sustainable protein source of aquafeed, which has been verified by several previous studies under experimental conditions. This study evaluated the potential for the replacement of fish meal (FM) with biofloc meal (BM) in the diet of Litopenaeus vannamei under practical...

Abstract

Given its complex metamorphosis and digestive system ontogeny, Senegalese sole larvae capacity to digest and utilize dietary protein is likely to change throughout development. In the present study, we hypothesized that the manipulation of dietary protein complexity may affect Senegalese sole...

Abstract

The potential of soya protein concentrate (SPC) as an alternative protein source in diets for Totoaba macdonaldi juveniles was evaluated. Seven isonitrogenous and isolipidic diets were formulated containing 15-100% SPC (SPC15, SPC30, SPC45, SPC60, SPC75, SPC90 and SPC100) to replace fishmeal...

Abstract

A 10-week feeding trial was conducted to determine the dietary protein requirement of juvenile triangular bream (Megalobrama terminalis). Five semi-purified diets (white fishmeal as a protein source) were formulated with five crude protein (CP) levels (26.30%, 32.94%, 38.33%, 44.18% and 50.09%;...
