Meat and bone meal as a potential source of phosphorus in plant-protein-based diets for Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus)


A growth trial was conducted to evaluate meat and bone meal (MBM) as a source of Phosphorus (P) for Nile tilapia fed with plant-based diets on growth, and the efficiency of P utilization. Four isonitrogenous and isoenergetic diets were formulated. A plant-based diet, deficient in P (0.45 % diet, no P added), was used as the basal diet. Three levels of MBM… (More)
