Researching the Use of Palm Kernel Cake in Aquaculture Feeds

  title={Researching the Use of Palm Kernel Cake in Aquaculture Feeds},
  author={Ng Wing Keong},
The production of aquatic animals, aquaculture, is currently the fastest growing animal production sector in the world. The rapid expansion of the aquaculture industry is most pronounced in Asia, which contributes about 90% of the total global aquaculture production (by weight). This increase in aquaculture production must be supported by a corresponding increase in the production of formulated diets for the cultured aquatic animals. For most aquaculture systems, the cost of feed constitutes 30…

Local agro-industrial by-products with potential use in Ghanaian aquaculture: a review

Local agro-industrial by-products with potential use in fish feeds based on their nutritional composition, total annual production, competition for and seasonal availability and dynamics of these products as well as prices are identified.

Recent advances in utilization of oil palm by-products as animal feed

The rapid expansion of oil palm plantation and production in countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and Nigeria results in large quantities of biomass by-products being produced. These

Is Palm Kernel Cake a Suitable Alternative Feed Ingredient for Poultry?

Biodegradation of palm kernel cake through solid-state fermentation can improve its nutritional quality, improving broiler health status and growth performance, and reduce importation dependency during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Improving nutritional values of palm kernel cake (PKC) as poultry feeds: a review

Palm Kernel Cake (PKC) is a by-product of palm kernel oil extract ion and provides moderate nutrition with approximately 16-18% of crude protein (CP) and 13-20% crude fiber (CF). Usage of PKC is

Growth performance, feed utilization and sensory characteristics of Nile Tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus fed diets with high inclusion levels of copra meal

It is demonstrated that it is possible to include autoclaved copra meal up to 680 g kg-1 in Nile tilapia diets without any deleterious effects on fish growth or on flesh sensory characteristics.

Growth Performance, Feed Utilization and Sensory Characteristics of Nile Tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus Fed Diets with High Inclusion Levels of Copra Meal

It is demonstrated that it is possible to include autoclaved copra meal up to 680 g kg-1 in Nile tilapia diets without any deleterious effects on fish growth or on flesh sensory characteristics.


The experiment was conducted with the aim of using the raw palm kernel meal(PKM) and Palm kernel meal treated with local enzymes (Cellulase, Amylase, and Protase) (Produced-laboratory)(PKME), And

Digestibility and postprandial ammonia excretion in Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) fed diets containing different oilseed by-products

The study confirmed the potential of using copra and palm kernel meals to partially replace fishmeal in Nile tilapia diets based on their effects on short-term growth and feed utilization, nutrient digestibilities and lower ammonia excretion rates, while soybean meal in an unrefined form is not a promising replacement for fishmeal.

Effects of xylanase and cellulase supplementation on early growing stage, caecal bacteria population and fermentation profiles of broiler fed with palm kernel meal

E enzyme supplementation in 20% palm kernel meal diet was only effective in improving the body weight of broilers at growing phase but not in the starter phase, and data show that nbutyrate have a toxic effect on coliform bacteria and Salmonella spp.



The Nutritive Value of Palm Kernel and the Effect of Enzyme Supplementation in Practical Diets for Red Hybrid Tilapia (Oreochromis sp)

It was concluded that PKM is a potential partial substitute for soybean meal in tilapia diets and Enzyme supplementation significantly improved dry matter and energy digestibility coefficients of the 40% PKM diet; however, no beneficial effects on the growth and feed utilization efficiency of redtilapia were observed.

Contamination of palm kernel meal with Aspergillus flavus affects its nutritive value in pelleted feed for tilapia, Oreochromis mossambicus

It was concluded that PKM can substitute up to 50% SBM in practical diets for O. mossambicus without much adverse effect to fish growth, but when PKM was contaminated with A. flavus, its' incorporation into tilapia diets resulted in growth depression as a result of decreased diet digestibility and also possibly because of the presence of anti-nutrients found in the contaminated PKM.

Nutritive value of palm kernel meal pretreated with enzyme or fermented with Trichoderma koningii (Oudemans) as a dietary ingredient for red hybrid tilapia (Oreochromis sp.)

It is anticipated that, with further optimization of enzyme pretreated PKM, higher levels of PKM could be included in the diets of hybridtilapia, thereby reducing the impact of rising costs to feed tilapia.

Replacement of Soybean Meal with Palm Kernel Meal in Practical Diets for Hybrid Asian-African Catfish, Clarias macrocephalus × C. gariepinus

The availability and low cost of PKM in many tropical countries makes it a viable partial substitute for soybean meal in the diets of hybrid Asian-African catfish and does not improve growth of hybrid catfish.

Non‐starch polysaccharides from sunflower (Helianthus annuus) meal and palm kernel (Elaeis guineenis) meal—preparation of cell wall material and extraction of polysaccharide fractions

Two different chemical methods, sequential extraction with alkali and sodium chlorite and treatment with 4-methylmorpholine N-oxide (MMNO), were applied to the extraction of non-starch
