Abstract This study evaluated the efficacy of replacing dietary fish oil (FO) with vegetable oils (virgin coconut and corn oil) on enzyme activities (glycolytic, oxidative and lipid metabolites), mRNA expression of lipid metabolic genes and histomorphology of liver and intestine in O . niloticus . O . niloticus (6.07 ± 0.07 g) was fed six experimental diets where fish oil (FO) served as the control diet, and then was supplemented by dietary oils; virgin coconut oil (VCO) {3%FO + 3%VCO; 3FVCO}, a...

Abstract Information related to the chemical composition of fish species is very much necessary to ensure that they meet requirements of man’s diet. This study is focused on providing nutrient contents information of the wild east Asian native species Predatory carp ( Chanodichthys erythropterus ). The specimens were collected from Lake Dianshan, Shanghai-China. The body muscles of randomly selected fish species were dried at 105 °C in an oven and used for biochemical analysis. Protein, carbohyd...

ABSTRACT Crab aquaculture has gained interest all over the world and is a delicacy in many places. Despite the recent progress made by crab aquaculture, diseases are of great concern in the crab industry. Until recently, the major tool for preventing and treating diseases in crab and other aquatic species was antibiotics; however, the use of antibiotics has its own problems calling for alternatives of which probiotics, prebiotics, and synbiotics have proven to be a suitable alternative. Treating...

Abstract Five isolipidic experimental diets (32% crude protein) were formulated to contain 3% fish oil (FO) and virgin coconut oil (3VCO) as sole lipids or blends of FO + VCO in ratios of 75:25% (0.75VCO), 50:50% (1.5VCO) and 25:75% (2.25VCO). Triplicate groups of O. niloticus were fed one of five diets to apparent satiation, twice daily for 8 weeks. It was observed that fish fed diet 3VCO exhibited the best performance with respect to feed intake (492.1 g), final weight (214.60 g) and weight ga...

Abstract Shrimp is a very important source of protein which is patronized by almost half of the world's population, and hence a very important specie in aquaculture. There is the need for increase in shrimp production worldwide to meet consumer demands. However, shrimp production is hampered by high cost of commercial feeds. Increase in prices of fish oil and fish meal has led to calls for their substitute. This calls for substitute has resulted in researchers studying the nutritional requiremen...

ABSTRACTThe global prominence and rapid growth in size and annual total production in the aquaculture industry has resulted in the need to seek for alternative and pragmatic measures to reduce the cost of feed production and feeding of captive fish species, which covers approximately 60%. This work presents an overview of the advances of ongoing research in coconut oil as alternative lipid sources in aquafeeds. The article further discusses the status and trends on some of the findings associate...

Aquaculture has been touted as one of the fastest growing food industries and is expected to grow further in the near future. As aquaculture production grows, there is the need for pragmatic practices to acquire reliable data in order to curtail the problems likely to affect production. Over the past decades, remote sensing has played a crucial role in planning, site selection and monitoring of aquaculture worldwide. This paper review recent advancements in application of remote-sensing (RS) and...
