Continued growth and intensi¢cation of aquaculture production depends upon the development of sustainable protein sources to replace ¢sh meal in aquafeeds. This document reviews various plant feedstuis, which currently are or potentially may be incorporated into aquafeeds to support the sustainable production of various ¢sh species in aquaculture. The plant feedstuis considered include oilseeds, legumes and cereal grains, which traditionally have been used as protein or energy concentrates as well as novel products developed through various processing technologies. The nutritional composition of these various feedstuis are considered along with the presence of any bioactive compounds that may positively or negatively aiect the target organism. Lipid composition of these feedstuis is not speci¢cally considered although it is recognized that incorporating lipid supplements in aquafeeds to achieve proper fatty acid pro¢les to meet the metabolic requirements of ¢sh and maximize human health bene¢ts are important aspects. Speci¢c strategies and techniques to optimize the nutritional composition of plant feedstuis and limit potentially adverse eiects of bioactive compounds are also described. Such information will provide a foundation for developing strategic research plans for increasing the use of plant feedstuis in aquaculture to reduce dependence of animal feedstuis and thereby enhance the sustainability of aquaculture.

Abstract A long-term feeding experiment (35 months) was conducted to study the effects of substitution of fish meal (FM) by cottonseed meal (CM) on growth, feed utilization and reproductive physiology in rainbow trout ( Oncorhynchus mykiss ). Five groups of fish (1.5 years old; 246 ± 10 g) were fed one of five experimental diets formulated to substitute FM with CM (147, 294, 441 and 588 g/kg designated as diets CM0, CM25, CM50, CM75 and CM100, respectively, based on percentage of protein replace...

Environmental concerns and the forthcoming ban on antibiotics in the European Union have renewed interest in renewable and non-persistent plant-based growth promoters in fish feeds. A review of the published literature and unpublished recent results following addition of a Quillaja saponin mixture in the diets of common carp and Nile tilapia are presented. It emerges that Quillaja saponins have the potential to increase growth in culture fish species, reduce their metabolic rate and suppress rep...

The inefficient digestion of phytate phosphorus by fish has created environmental concerns associated with phosphorus pollution from aquaculture production facilities. To further complicate this situation, phytate is known to chelate minerals and proteins, making them nutritionally unavailable. The enzyme phytase degrades phytate into inorganic phosphorus, which can be directly utilized by fish. As a model to examine the feasibility and efficacy of producing fish capable of degrading phytate, Ja...

Genistein, the primary isoflavone in soybean, is one of the chemical components responsible for some of the off-flavors associated with soy-based foods. The potential effects of genistein on the sensory and chemical quality of fish muscle may affect the full utilization of soybean meal as an alternative protein in aquaculture diets. Fingerling trout fed commercial diets containing 0, 500, 1000, or 3000 ppm pure genistein were analyzed after 6 and 12 months of feeding. Genistein was extracted by ...

This study investigated how lactic acid fermentation of extracted (de-oiled) soybean white flakes (WF) affected the nutritional value of the WF when fed to Atlantic salmon. WF and fermented WF (FWF) were compared with a commercial extracted (SBM) and a commercial biotechnologically processed (BPSBM) soybean meal. Lactic acid fermentation eliminated sucrose, reduced the level of raffinose, and lowered trypsin inhibitor activity in the FWF. Eight extruded diets were produced in which the soy produ...

Since its development more than two decades ago, Quality Protein Maize (QPM) has been adopted for cultivation in many regions of the developing world. Given the potential benefits of widespread use of QPM, research to better understand the genetic and biochemical mechanisms responsible for its altered kernel texture and protein quality is important. Recent investigations into the improved protein quality of the opaque2 mutant and the genetic mechanisms that can suppress its starchy kernel phenot...

A major challenge in cereal biotechnology is to achieve the rational design of renewable polymers to meet specific requirements for improving human health, nutrition, and food quality, to increase the energy supply, and to provide safer and more profitable industrial inputs. The field of starch synthesis research has advanced at a rapid pace over the past decade, and many core observations about the pathway are well established over a range of species. Owing to the complexity of the starch-synth...

Lysine catabolism in plants is initiated by a bifunctional LKR/SDH (lysine-ketoglutarate reductase/saccharopine dehydrogenase) enzyme encoded by a single LKR/SDH gene. Yet, the AtLKR/SDH gene of Arabidopsis also encodes a second gene product, namely a monofunctional SDH. To elucidate the regulation of lysine catabolism in Arabidopsis through these two gene products of the AtLKR/SDH gene, an analysis was carried out on the effects of the hormones, abscisic acid and jasmonate, as well as various m...

1. An experiment was performed to compare the welfare of three broiler breeder genotypes (Label Rouge (LA), experimental dwarf (ER) and standard (SR)) fed on a Control or high Fibre diet. The LA birds were fed ad libitum and the other groups were reared to their recommended body weight targets. A group of standard broiler breeders was also fed a restricted amount of food, but to a lesser degree than SR, to achieve the same proportion of body weight (SE) as ER relative to ad libitum-fed dwarfs ba...

In one of the longest-running experiments in biology, researchers at the University of Illinois have selected for altered composition of the maize kernel since 1896. Here we use an association study to infer the genetic basis of dramatic changes that occurred in response to selection for changes in oil concentration. The study population was produced by a cross between the high- and low-selection lines at generation 70, followed by 10 generations of random mating and the derivation of 500 lines ...

Abstract Corresponding to projected global population growth, the world's food production systems must likewise enlarge substantially if current levels of dietary protein intake are to be maintained. The anticipated growth curve for global aquaculture, and especially for shrimp farming, which is forecast to double production by 2030, will inevitably result in shortfalls in currently favored dietary ingredients: fishmeal (FM) and fish oil (FO). Servicing the projected FM-FO shortfall with marine ...
