Abstract

Water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes) is a fast growing invasive aquatic plant often covers water bodies. It has been a problem worldwide. Fast-growing and rapidly expanding omnivorous tilapia is likely the suitable species for aquaculture. Since the fish farmers are adversely affected by high cost ...

Abstract

Based on the importance of tambaqui, Colossoma macropomum, for Latin American aquaculture and the digestibility of minerals for the production of sustainable aquafeeds, we designed a series of trials to determine the apparent digestibility coefficients (ADCs) of phosphorus, calcium, magnesium,...

Abstract

The potential benefits of a commercial preparation of heptanoate (NOREL, HEPTON®) were evaluated in an 11-week gilthead sea bream feeding trial (May-August), using a factorial design with four isoproteic and isoenergetic diets. Fish meal (FM) was added at 200 g/kg in D1-D2 diets and at 50 g/kg in...

Abstract

Background: In order to ensure sustainability of aquaculture production of carnivourous fish species such as the gilthead seabream (Sparus aurata, L.), the impact of the inclusion of alternative protein sources to fishmeal, including plants, has been assessed. With the aim of evaluating long-term...

Abstract

This study examined four experimental diets with different protein concentrations and sources for pond-raised fingerling hybrid catfish, ♀ Ictalurus punctatus × ♂ Ictalurus furcatus. A 35% protein diet with fishmeal was used as the control diet. Test diets were 32 and 28% all-plant-protein diets...

Abstract

An 11-wk feeding trial was conducted to evaluate three different protein hydrolysates as feed ingredients in high-plant-protein diets for juvenile olive flounder. Five experimental diets were fed to juvenile olive flounder to examine the effect of three different protein hydrolysates on growth...

Abstract

The effects of different dietary protein levels on growth performance and health status of TwobandBream Diplodus vulgaris juveniles were investigated. Three test diets that had increasing protein levels (30, 36, and 42%) and used fish meal as the protein source were formulated. Each of the test...

Abstract

Fish meal were mainly used in aquaculture and livestock feeds as its superior protein source with high protein level, abundant and balanced amino acids, and high digestibility and absorption for animals, which was mainly used in aquaculture and livestock feeds. Compared with other feed stuff, fish...

Abstract

The shortage of fish meal and fish oil has led to demonstrate the feasibility of omitting marine ingredients from the diet of rainbow trout. This complete suppression was further studied in the present experiment. Plasma markers indicated that the metabolism was deeply affected in trout fed plant...

Abstract

A pilot project aimed at testing roe enhancement strategies based on offshore Paracentrotus lividus cultures was conducted off the south-east coast of Italy (Apulia Region). Adult sea urchins were reared in sea cages located 700 m offshore at a depth of 12 m for 3 months. The animals were fed once...
