This study evaluated the effect of diets supplemented with fish oil and algae meal for LC-PUFA enrichment on juvenile Nile tilapia. The experimental diets have promise as a feasible option for enriching omega-3 content in tilapia fillets.
This study assessed the efficacy and nutritional properties of the marine alga Nannochloropsis salina as a feed ingredient using tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) as a model species. Results showed adequate growth, survival, FCR and enhanced EPA levels.
This 10-week feeding trial aimed at complementing existing information on largemouth bass responses to oils with supplemental EPA and DHA. Dietary supplementation of these essential fatty acids may be required in feeds for this species.
Green water, which describes the typical water color in tropical aquaculture facilities, consists mainly of various phytoplankton species along with bacteria, protozoa and zooplankton. It is relatively easy to produce without any supplemented nutrients.
