Very good to develop alternative sources of protein in aquafeeds. Can I have the full paper so as to make a more informed comment?

Fish meal addition in the feed formulation improves attractability apart from nutritionl point of view. Partial replacement may be possible if it is acceptable for farmers.

It needs practical study and extension work
