Locally available protein sources in diets of Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus)

  title={Locally available protein sources in diets of Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus)},
  author={H Gustavsson},
Growth performance of male-fish Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) fed with locally available protein sources was evaluated in an attempt to find alternative ingredients to replace fish meal (FM) in an experimental set up at the An Giang University in the Mekong Delta in Vietnam. In the four experimental diets, 100 % of the FM was replaced with protein from golden apple snail meal (GAS), pangasius by-product meal (PBM), shrimp head meal (SHM) and blood meal (BM), respectively. A control diet…

Commercial Cuban feed evaluation for red tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus x O. mossambicus) fry culture in seawater

Background: Aquaculture slightly grew during last decade in Cuba due to nationally validated technologies and guaranteed market. Objective. To evaluate the effect of three commercial feeds (D10, D15

Growth and aquaculture potential of Tilapia jipe, Oreochromis jipe and Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus

Aquaculture growth needs to be accelerated in order to bridge the gap in fish demand occasioned by the dwindling stocks in the inland fisheries in Kenya, using 180 fingerlings of each species stocked in 9m2 wooden backyard ponds.



Total replacement of fish meal with animal protein sources in Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus (L.), feeds

Cost–benefit analyses of the test diets indicated that these sources were economically superior to FM, and the PBM-based diet produced higher carcass lipid than other diets.

Use of shrimp protein hydrolysate in Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus, L.) feeds

It is demonstrated that SPH is a promising protein feedstuff and could account for as much as 6% of Nile tilapia diets with no adverse effects on growth and nutrient utilization.

Feasibility of fishmeal replacement by shrimp head silage protein hydrolysate in Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus L) diets

It is concluded that shrimp head hydrolysate is a promising alternative protein source for tilapia feeding, improving growth ratio at dietary inclusion levels as high as 15%.

Replacement of Fish Meal by Plant Proteins in the Diet of Nile Tilapia: Digestibility and Growth Performance

These values were significantly lower than those observed for tilapia fed plant protein based diet (D100) and suggest the possibility of partial replacement of fish meal by vegetable proteins without negative effects.

Utilization of blood meal as a protein ingredient from animal waste product in the diet of Oreochromis niloticus

The results showed that blood-meal performed very well as a feedstuff and inclusion of rate of 100% could replace fishmeal in Tilapia diet with no adverse effect on growth and survival of O. niloticus fingerlings.

Fermented Golden Apple Snails as an Alternative Protein Source in Sex-Reversed Red Tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus x O. mossambicus) Diets

It was concluded that snail meal is a potential protein source in sex-reversed red tilapia diets and replacement of fishmeal protein with minced snail meal could be at 50 % and FGAS could be up to 100 % but 75 % is recommended.
