This study evaluated the effects of replacing fishmeal and fish oil with a plant-based diet in juvenile and on-growing rainbow trout from first-feeding.
omega-3 fatty acids
This study examined changes in the biochemical composition of the microalga Nannochloropsis sp. cultivated as a potential feedstock for aquafeeds, and presents results on its productivity, protein content and lipid composition.
A study shows that wastewater from recirculating aquaculture systems is suitable for microalgal cultivation and that sludge amendment to the wastewater increases production.
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.
With byproducts representing between 25 to 50 percent of the weight of various fish species, we need to be looking at how the entire fish is being used: even the heads, guts and skin.
Farmed jade perch – similar to other cultured fish species – is only rich in omega-3 fatty acids if its diet consists of these nutrients in high amounts. How does it compare to the wild fish?
A vigorous phytoplankton bloom will support a healthy benthic community and will contribute significantly to stabilising and maintaining adequate pond water and bottom quality.
Giovanni Turchini, associate professor at Deakin University (Australia) spoke at the GOAL 2016 conference in Guangzhou, China, and gave a comprehensive historical look at global fishmeal usage.
In his latest piece for the Advocate, industry veteran Phil Walsh, VP of Growth for Alfa Gamma Seafood Group in Miami, says aquaculture stakeholders should seize every opportunity to promote their products’ positive attributes in the face of stiff opposition.
