Introduction Creatine (essential for energy metabolism) and glutathione (GSH; an important non-enzymatic antioxidant) are major metabolites of glycine [the simplest amino acid (AA)] in animals (Fig.  1). Specifically, arginine:glycine amidinotransferase (AGAT) and guanidinoacetate N-methyltransferase (GAMT) convert glycine into creatine in the presence of arginine and methionine, whereas γ-glutamylcysteine synthetase and glutathione synthetase catalyze the formation of GSH...

Short Answer: Rendering is Recycling It’s a process that repurposes co-products(also called by-products) that would otherwise go to waste from the “meat we don’t eat.” By rendering specific materials that many North American consumers would consider inedible, such as certain fats, bones and proteins, renderers provide...

Rendering involves repurposing animal co-products that would otherwise be discarded. It converts the parts of a meat animal we choose not to eat into stable, usable materials such as fuel, pet food, and livestock feed, creating a highly sustainable alternative. Below, learn more about products made from rendered materials in detail. You can discover...

Introduction The feeds for fish can be categorized as floating feeds, slowly sinking feeds, and sinking feeds. Each of these types of feeds are either made by exploring different types and amounts of ingredients, for instance, by controlling starch levels in the feed formulations or by varying the processing parameters, for instance, by modifying the screw profile, changing the screw speed, etc. Floating feeds are mainly made using an extrusion process whereas sinking feeds are...

Introduction Animal production relies on the supply of nutritious feeds supporting high growth, welfare and health of animals and the production of high-quality products in an environmentally sustainable and profitable manner. With feed cost representing 50 to 80% of the total production cost, feed manufacturers have a very important role in the overall economic viability of animal agriculture enterprises. Animal production involves a complex “nutritional supply...

Introduction Early fish development is the most important thing that should be known before producing any seeds, especially in the new cultured species or strain. Generally, early development is divided into egg, larvae and juvenile, whereas mostly fish embryos develop from transparent eggs [1] . According to Kendall et al. [2], the egg stage is divided into early, middle and late subdivisions, which end with blastopore closure, freeing of the tail bud from the yolk, and...

Physiological stress is one of the main contributing factors of disease outbreaks and reduced performances in the production of tilapia. Compared to the production of land animals, there are only a limited number of practical and cost effective disease treatment methods for aquaculture. Therefore, good stress management practices are an...

Introduction: The aquaculture industry is rapidly growing and is now considered a major contributor in the global food production. To meet the global demand, aquaculture production practices have been intensified to a greater extent both in technological and practical measures. Aquaculture generates considerable amount of wastes, consisting of metabolic by-products, residual food, fecal matters and residues of prophylactic and therapeutic inputs, leading to the deterioration of...

1. Introduction Poultry and fish are both increasing in popularity as protein sources in human diets. Fish consumption has increased by 122% between 1990 and 2018 [1] with an over 500% rise in aquaculture production globally over the same timescale. Salmon production is estimated to reach 2.7 million tonnes (MT) by 2021, compared to 0.8 MT in 2000 [2]. Similarly, poultry meat production is also increasing year on year and is predicted to have reached 137 MT in 2020 [1]. This...
