Alternative dietary protein sources for use in the diets of farmed Oreochromis are reviewed, with emphasis on fishery byproducts, terrestrial animal byproducts, oilseed plants, aquatic plants, single cell proteins, grain legumes, plant protein concentrates and cereal byproducts. The nutritive values, inclusion levels, constraints and economic evaluation of these sources are discussed and the tested and recommended inclusion levels are tabulated.
