The increasing global population and the limiting global capture fisheries undeniably increase the demand of aquaculture. On the other hand, those will also bring about limitation to aquaculture expansion in particular of land and water utilization. Therefore, productivity enhancement in term of total production per input used becomes one of the major priority in the development of a ...

Dietary protein is the most expensive ingredient in fish feed which is required to sustain normal growth of aquatic animals. Feed accounts for 40-60% of the production costs in aquaculture, with protein sources accounting for a significant proportion of this cost (Fotedar, 2004).
The use of rich protein diets above optimum levels, increases operating costs required to raise fish. Op ...

An experiment was conducted to evaluate the effect of two different commercial feed additives on growth performance of monosex Nile tilapia fingerlings. Seven treatments were applied, three levels of Biogen® (0.1, 0.2 and 0.3%) and Pronifer® (0.1, 0.2 and 0.3%) in addition to control. The tested diets were applied in 21 fiberglass tanks each was stocked randomly with 20 monosex N ...

The protein requirements of fingerlings grey mullet, Mugil cephalus with an initial body weight of 5.5 g on the average, were studied by using four diets containing 32, 36, 40 and 44% crude protein, and fed for 90 days. The best growth performance was obtained with 36% crude protein and carbohydrate 35%, followed by the diets containing 40, 44 and 32% crude protein respectively. Protein e ...

This research was conducted to study the effect of lipid levels on growth performance of fingerlings Sea bass. Sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax) fingerlings with an average body weight 1.2±.0.2g were fed one of four compound diets containing 50% crude protein with different level of lipids, ranging from 10 to 16 g/100 g. The highest weight gain, specific growth rate, ...
