The present study was designed to evaluate the effect of a natural prey (the crab Callinectes sp.) and an artificial diet (pellet with squid paste and offered as a paste) on the survival and assimilation efficiency of subadult octopuses with 486 g of initial live weight. In order to reach this goal, the effects of the type of diet on energetic balance were assessed by recording ingestion rate (C), respiratory rate (R = R routine, Rrout + R apparent heat increment, RAHI), ammonia production rate… Expand
Growth, survival and physiological condition of Octopus maya when fed a successful formulated diet
TLDR
Principal component analysis (PCA) showed that muscle glycogen and DG protein contents had the strongest influence on the separation of groups in a canonical analysis and were positively related with growth indicating that CrSq diets have the best nutritional characteristics to satisfy growth requirements. Expand
Effects of two dietary protein levels on energy balance and digestive capacity of Octopus maya
TLDR
The present results show the capacity of O. maya juveniles to adjust their digestive enzymes to different types of food and protein level, and this appears to be well correlated with octopus growth. Expand
Growth and feed efficiency of Octopus vulgaris fed on dry pelleted
TLDR
The good performance in terms of acceptance and growth showed that this extruded diet can be the starting point to develop a commercial feed for this species. Expand
Growth and Mortality of Common Octopus (Octopus vulgaris) Fed a Monospecific Fish Diet
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that with a monodiet of mackerel, subadult octopuses of 300 g can reach commercial size in 2.5 mo, however, high mortality under elevated stocking densities will hinder commercial profitability with such diet. Expand
Energy demand during exponential growth of Octopus maya: exploring the effect of age and weight
Recent work has reported changes associated with physiological, morphological, and behavioural adaptation during the absorption of yolk reserves. The holobenthic endemic species Octopus maya was usedExpand
Growth, protein retention and biochemical composition in Octopus vulgaris fed on different diets based on crustaceans and aquaculture by-products
TLDR
High protein retention was observed in octopuses fed on diets containing discarded bogue, associated with a high lipid and monoenes content in this food item, underlying the use of lipid as energy source in O. vulgaris. Expand
The effects of fish hydrolysate (CPSP) level on Octopus maya (Voss and Solis) diet: Digestive enzyme activity, blood metabolites, and energy balance
TLDR
Higher energy content in the digestive gland and muscle was observed in octopuses fed crab, followed by animals fed 15% CPSP, suggesting that lipids and protein were the main sources of variation linked with energy content. Expand
Effects of dietary protein sources on growth, survival and digestive capacity of Octopus maya juveniles (Mollusca: Cephalopoda).
TLDR
It is concluded that nutritional requirements of O. maya must be between 80% crab paste and lyophilized crab paste, confirming hypothesis 2 and that changes on nutritional characteristics during ingredient process affects the nutritional composition of diet. Expand
Growth, feed efficiency and condition of common octopus (Octopus vulgaris) fed on two formulated moist diets
TLDR
The animals showed a suitable degree of acceptance of both formulated diets, grew and produced faeces, with 100% survival in all groups, and no significant difference was observed between groups C and A with regard to feed efficiency or protein productive value. Expand
Response of newly hatched Octopus bimaculoides fed enriched Artemia salina: Growth performance, ontogeny of the digestive enzyme and tissue amino acid content
TLDR
Octopus bimaculoides is a promising species for commercial culture, and even though good results were obtained when fed Artemia, a more appropriate food source should be sought to obtain an amino acid profile that will maximize growth. Expand

Experimental evaluation of the energy balance in Octopus vulgaris, fed ad libitum on a high-lipid diet
TLDR
A complete energy balance equation was estimated for the common octopus Octopus vulgaris at a constant temperature of 20°C, fed ad libitum on anchovy fillet (Engraulis encrasicolus), indicating a protein-dominated metabolism for O. vulgaris. Expand
Feeding and growth in captivity of the octopus Enteroctopus megalocyathus Gould, 1852
TLDR
The results indicate that E. megalocyathus can survive and grow in captivity, both in tanks and in suspended systems, when fed on a diet of crustaceans. Expand
Combined effects of temperature and body weight on growth and protein utilization of the common octopus, Octopus vulgaris
TLDR
It is concluded that temperature should be adjusted according to the body weight of O. vulgaris for optimizing the economic viability of rearing, and that animals larger than 200 g should be reared at low temperature. Expand

TLDR
Energy used in respiration, growth, and excretion of nitrogenous and faecal waste, was recorded along with the total consumption of energy through food, for three specimens of P. charcoti and E. cirrhosa. Expand
Energy Balance of Callinectes rathbunae Contreras 1930 in Floating Cages in a Tropical Coastal Lagoon
TLDR
Results support the energy balance equation and suggest that the cultivation of C. rathbunae in floating cages is possible and their scope for growth in a tropical coastal lagoon of the Gulf of Mexico is measured. Expand
Influence of diet on ongrowing and nutrient utilization in the common octopus (Octopus vulgaris).
TLDR
No significant differences were observed regarding growth and sex although it was slightly higher in males, Nevertheless, food intake was higher in females as well as in the sardine-fed females, and growth with bogue-fed octopus was significantly higher. Expand
Effect of temperature on specific dynamic action in the common octopus, Octopus vulgaris (Cephalopoda)
TLDR
The effect of temperature on SDA of the common octopus, Octopus vulgaris, was evaluated, by measuring the temporal pattern of the oxygen consumption rates of octopuses, after feeding, at two constant temperatures, 20°C and 28°C. Expand
An energetic and conceptual model of the physiological role of dietary carbohydrates and salinity on Litopenaeus vannamei juveniles
TLDR
There are two factors that apparently control the use of high dietary CHO levels; α-amylase enzyme-dietary CHO level capacity and glycogen saturation in DG and production of glucose is limited in shrimp because of saturation of α-AMylase when shrimp are fed with diets above 33% CHO. Expand
Influence of body weight and temperature on post-prandial oxygen consumption of common octopus (Octopus vulgaris)
TLDR
It is suggested that feeding induces a significant transient short-term effect on oxygen consumption that does not usually last longer than 24 h, and this result suggests that water flow or oxygen supply during culture should be suitably adjusted at such times. Expand
Nutrition of cephalopods: Fueling the system
TLDR
The protein/energy ratio required for optimum growth appears to be significantly greater than for other aquatic invertebrates or fishes and indicates that protein should not be considered separately from energy in cephalopods. Expand
