Akintomide Yinka Thank you for your comment and observation. Though , the economics and cost effective profile is intended to be in another article to avoid too many things in this sing article

This is the type of research I love - something productive. However, you didn't compare the economics of the three feeds in relation to your findings - feed cost, average production time & the performance. It's better to see how they interrelate, to actually determine the most economical. Thanks for the piece.

1. IntroductionIn Nigeria today, despite the significant investment in commercial agriculture by the government, aid agencies, multilateral organizations and individuals, livestock production has not succeeded in meeting the protein demands in the country (Oluwatayo and Adedeji, 2019) [1]. The increasing human population in the country has indicated that the conventional forms of livestock product ...

Yes, I believe that there are lots of viable substitutes - blue algae, (various) fly larvae, earthworms, cockroaches..., , all depending on the formulator's skill, the fish in question (nutrient requirement) and the culture environ (water quality / available nutrient). The main issues are ensuring that it's economical, sustainable and healthy.

Thanks for making your work available. However, I have lots of questions. 1). the crude protein / energy content of your substitutes are quite different from that of the yellow maize you are replacing, so why choose the fig plant to replace maize? 2). The fish meal you used. The analysis seems questionable? At 17.1% moisture, the value is 16.3% protein? 3). Why not formulate feeds with similar CP ...

[11], the hatching rates of Clariasgariepinus eggsin many hatcheries in Africa are erratic, ranging from 8.0 to 70%, depending onthe degree of sophistication of the management of the hatcheries. Since hatchery production is the fun ...

Thanks for the update on spirulina. l'll like to know if the protein (CP), energy and other nutrient content of your feed combinations were balanced to determine the ideal contribution of spirulina? I believe that this will help in ensuring that spirulina actually performs better than normal feed formulations. 'Yinka.

IntroductionAquaculture has become the fastest growing food-producing industry around the world; however, the production efficiency of aquaculture could be further increased through the development of nutritious and cost-effective alternatives to traditional and finite marine protein feedstuffs such as fish meal (FM) (Suarez et al. 2013; Katya et al. 2014). Numerous studies have been carried out t ...

Has anyone tried improving the results of BSF protein as an FM replacement by adding selected amounts of microalgae which can have a superior amino acid profile and lipid profile? That might answer part of the question whether it's the chitin content of BSF or the lower amino acid content that leads to the observed decrease in WG at a higher dosage?
