A study was conducted to examine the effect of dietary levels of distiller’s dried grains with solubles (DDGS) on growth, body composition, hematology, immune response, and resistance of channel catfish, Ictalurus punctatus, to Edwardsiella ictaluri challenge. Five diets containing 0, 10, 20, 30, and 40% DDGS with supplemental lysine (Diets 1–5) as partial(More)
Three basal diets containing 0%, 27.5% and 55.0% solvent-extracted cottonseed meal (CSM) as replacements of 0%, 50% and 100% of solvent-extracted soybean meal (SBM) on an equal nitrogen basis were each supplemented with three levels of iron (40, 336 and 671 mg/kg) from ferrous sulfate heptahydrate (3 3 factorial experiment). Each diet was fed to juvenile(More)
Nine egg-white-based diets supplemented with three levels of vitamin C from L-ascorbyl-2Ž . polyphosphate 0, 50 and 3000 mgrkg for each of the three levels of iron from iron methionine Ž . 0, 30 and 300 mgrkg were each fed to juvenile channel catfish in triplicate aquaria twice daily to apparent satiation for 14 weeks. Fish fed with iron-deficient diets had(More)
A study was undertaken to evaluate the effect of heat treatment of defatted raw soybean meal (RSBM) on the growth performance, hematology, immune response and resistance of channel catfish to Edwardsiella ictaluri challenge. Six practical-type diets were formulated to be isocaloric (2.8 kcal DE/kg diet) and isonitrogenous (34% crude protein). A diet(More)
Growth performance, immune responses and disease resistance were studied in juvenile channel catfish, Ictalurus punctatus, fed a commercial diet (35.3% crude protein and 5.6% lipid) supplemented with menhaden fish oil at levels of 0, 3, 6, and 9% for 15 wk. Dietary fish oil levels did not significantly influence growth performance of catfish. Fatty acid(More)
In the present study, we examined the long-term effects of environmental salinity, diet (35% and 25% crude protein) and 17α-methyltestosterone (MT) on corresponding levels of pituitary and serum growth hormone (GH) and prolactins (tPRL177 and tPRL188) in the tilapia (Oreochromis mossambicus). We observed no discernible patterns in serum GH that would(More)
—A feeding trial was conducted in aquaria with juvenile hybrid catfish (channel catfish Ictalurus punctatus3blue catfish I. furcatus) to evaluate distiller’s dried grains with solubles (DDGS) as a replacement for a combination of soybean meal (SBM) and corn meal (CM). Twenty-five 75-L glass aquaria were each stocked with 30 juvenile hybrid catfish (initial(More)
A study was conducted to determine the effect of increasing dietary levels of fish oil on vitamin E requirement and their effect on growth performance, liver vitamin E status, and tissue proximate and fatty acid compositions of channel catfish. Basal purified diets (42% protein and 3,800 kcal DE/kg) supplemented with 6, 10, and 14% menhaden fish oil were(More)
Distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS), a co-product of the dry-mill ethanol industry, are the dried residue that remains after the fermentation of corn (or other grains) mash by selected yeasts and enzymes to produce ethanol and carbon dioxide. The nutrient composition of DDGS varies depending on the source of grain and the methods used for ethanol(More)
