Effect of Partial Replacement of Soya bean (Glycin max) with African Locust Bean (Parkia biglobosa) on the Growth Performance and Carcass of Clarias gariepins Fingerlings

  title={Effect of Partial Replacement of Soya bean (Glycin max) with African Locust Bean (Parkia biglobosa) on the Growth Performance and Carcass of Clarias gariepins Fingerlings},
  author={Felix Eze},
This study aims to evaluate the effect of utilizing Locust Bean (Parkia biglobosa) Seed Meal (LBSM) as an alternate protein source for Clarias gariepinus. The study was conducted in Nwochas Farm, Maiduguri. The experimental diets were formulated to contain LBSM at levels of 25%, 50%, 75% inclusions and were labelled as T2, T3, T4 respectively with diet T1 acting as control. All diets were formulated isonitrogenously using pearson square method with 35% Crude Protein. A 56 days feeding trial was… Expand

Preliminary evaluation of the nutritive value of the variegated grasshopper (Zonocerus variegatus L.) for African catfish Clarias gariepinus (Burchell. 1822) fingerlings
The VGM can replace fish meal up to 25% in the diets of C. gariepinus fingerlings without any adverse effect on growth and nutrient utilization and apparent protein and lipid digestibility were high at all levels, although there were decreases with an increase in the inclusion levels. Expand
Feed Utilization and Biochemical Characteristics of Clarias gariepinus (Burchell, 1822) Fingerlings Fed Diets Containing Fish Oil and Vegetable Oils as Total Replacements
It is concluded from the present study that vegetable oil sources including palm oil, soybean oil and groundnut oil can be utilized by catfish as the sole lipid source in fish diet with negligible impact on growth performance while the utilization of benni seed oil should be limited for efficient feed utilization by fish and ensure good food fish quality.

Differential Effects of Dietary Lipids on Growth Performance, Digestibility, Fatty Acid Composition and Histology of African Catfish (Heterobranchus longifilis) Fingerlings
The results of this study shows that alternative lipids sources could be used in H. longifilis diets however, inclusion of PKO or SBO in the diet of Hetero-branchus longifILis produced fillets with low concentrations of long chain n-3 PUFA. Expand
Comparative utilizations of fish waste meal with imported fishmeal by African catfish (Clarias gariepinus).
Performance of dietary fish waste meal (FWM) and imported fishmeal (FM) were evaluated at 10 and 15% inclusion levels in catfish diets towards the utilization of fish wastes as a cheap alternative animal protein source for sustainable aquaculture to show an overall good growth performances and survival rate of experimental fish.

Effects of different dietary protein and lipid levels on growth, feed utilization and body composition of red porgy (Pagrus pagrus) fingerlings
Weight gain, specific growth rate and feed efficiency were significantly higher with diets containing higher protein levels, when compared with dietary levels below 500 g kg )1 , and there was no evidence of a protein-sparing effect of dietary lipids. Expand
The use of fermented feather meal for replacement fish meal in the diet of oreochromis niloticus
Results of the present study indicated that fermented feather meal could be used at 25 % up to 50 % of the diet level for Oreochromis niloticus without compromising growth and feed utilization efficiency, however, it’s appeared to result in a decrease in weight gain and associated growth parameters with high increasing replacement. Expand
Protein-sparing effect of dietary carbohydrate in diets for fingerling Labeo rohita
Dietary dextrin was better utilized by L. rohita and had a greater protein-sparing effect than sucrose and/or glucose, and the values for protein and energy retention were significantly lowered in fish fed the glucose containing diets. Expand
Observations on intraspecific aggression and coeval sibling cannibalism by larval and juvenile Claias gariepinus (Clariidae: Pisces) under controlled conditions
It was concluded that sibling cannibalism is a highly specialized predation strategy which, under a given set of environmentally induced limiting factors, acts as a density dependent population regulatory mechanism. Expand
