  author={Jonathan C. Eya and A. S. Parsons},
Zeolites are natural or synthetic crystalline aluminosilicates with ion exchanging properties. Zeolites have been increasingly used i n v arious ap plication ar eas such as industry, agriculture, environmental protection, and eve n medi cine. Supplied as d ietary additives to l ivestocks such as swine, ru minants a nd poultry, they im prove weight gain, increase feed conversion ratios a nd promote animal health. The aim wa s to a sses the effects of the natural zeolites, bentonite and mor…

Effects of natural zeolite (clinoptilolite) levels in fish diet on water quality, growth performance and nutrient utilization of tilapia (Tilapia zillii) fry.

It was concluded that zeolite may be a suitable feed additive for use in Tilapia zillii diets, and lower ammonia release is one of the most important matters for maintainable and environment-friendly aquaculture activities.


In this study, it was aimed to investigate the effects of dietary zeolite supplementations on blood parameters of gilthead seabream (Sparus aurata). Zeolite was gradually included into the diets at

Effects of Dietary Natural Clay Zeolite Supplementation on Growth Performance, Hematological Parameters and Body Composition of Nile Tilapia, oreochromis niloticus l. Fingerlings

A feeding study was conducted to investigate the effect of dietary supplementation of zeolite (silicate clay) on growth performance, digestive enzymes, immunity and gut bacteria count of Nile


The aim of this research was to evaluate the effect of diets with natural zeolite on the growth and survival of the Cryphiops caementarius river shrimp. 72 male shrimp, 4.88 cm total length, captured

The effects of dietary clinoptilolite and chitosan nanoparticles on growth, body composition, haemato-biochemical parameters, immune responses, and antioxidative status of Nile tilapia exposed to imidacloprid

The application of ZEO and/or ChNPs in Nile tilapia diets looks to be a leading approach to mitigate the toxic impacts of IMID.

Effects of sodium bentonite clay as a feed additive on the growth and haematology parameters of hybrid grouper, Epinephelus fuscoguttatus x Epinephelus lanceolatus

This study evaluated the effects of inclusion levels of sodium bentonite clay as a feed additive on growth and hematology parameters of TGGG, Epinephelus fuscoguttatus × E. lanceolatus. Four dietary



Effect of clinoptilolite on performance of Japanese quail (Coturnix coturnix japonica) during experimental aflatoxicosis.

Results suggest that CLI effectively diminished the detrimental effects of AF on the variables investigated in this study, and the addition of CLI to an AF-containing diet significantly reduced the deleterious effects ofAF on food consumption, body weight gain and food conversion ratio.

1. One hundred and twenty 16-week-old single combed pullets of three strains were fed on a diet containing 135 g protein/kg with or without 50 g clinoptilolite/kg in a trial with 20 hens per

Effects of various types of aluminosilicates and aflatoxin B1 on aflatoxin toxicity, chick performance, and mineral status.

The AFB1 significantly decreased 2- and 3-wk body weight, and a significant interaction effect of AS and AFB1 on bird weight occurred at 2 and 3 wk of age, and three of the four AS tested alleviated the growth depression caused by AFB1.

Efficacy of zeolitic ore compounds on the toxicity of aflatoxin to growing broiler chickens.

Zeomite mordenite ore reduced the toxicity of aflatoxin to growing chicks by 41%, as indicated by weight gains, liver weight, and serum biochemical measurements, which compares favorably with its in vitro binding capacity to a Flatoxin.

Significant dietary effects in favour of clinoptilolite feeding were noticed with the number of eggs laid per hen, shell thickness, efficiency of food utilisation, droppings moisture content and mortality.

Ameliorative effects of dietary clinoptilolite on pathological changes in broiler chickens during aflatoxicosis.

Results suggest that CLI was effective for the protection of AF-toxication in broilers and it could contribute to a solution of the AF problem in poultry production.

The Application of Natural Zeolites in Animal Science and Aquaculture

A review of this subject reveals that both the ion-exchange and adsorption properties of natural zeolites can be exploited to make more efficient use of feed nitrogen in animal nutrition, to reduce intestinal diseases prevalent in young swine and ruminants, to control moisture and ammonia content of animal manure, to purify recirculating hatchery waters in aquaculture, and to provide oxygen-enriched air for fish breeding and transport.

Effect of sodium bentonite on the performance and blood variables of broiler chickens intoxicated with aflatoxins.

It is concluded that NaB at pH 7.9 partially neutralises the effects of aflatoxins on broiler chickens when included at 5.0 g/kg in the diet.

The Effect of Nutrient Dilution with Sodium Bentonite in Practical Diets for Rainbow Trout

Abstract Rainbow trout (Salmo gairdneri) with a mean initial weight of 18.8 g (0.041 lb) were fed one of two experimental diets (29.2% protein or 38.5% protein), or the 38.5% protein diet plus 5%,
