Digestible protein (DP) contents of novel feed ingredients are required for test diet formulation and commercial feed production. Species-specific in vitro pH-Stat protein hydrolysis was used to predict the DP contents of three algal meals produced from a common lot of the marine eustigmatophyte microalga, Nannochloropsis granulata, for juvenile Pacific white shrimp (Litopenaeus vannamei) and rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss). Protein degree of hydrolysis (DH) and predicted protein apparent… CONTINUE READING
