Diet composition, feed preferences and mouth morphology of early stage silver therapon (Leiopotherapon plumbeus, Kner 1864) larvae reared in outdoor tanks
- Journal of Applied Ichthyology, 2015 - Wiley
This study examined the diet composition, feeding preferences, and mouth morphology of the silver therapon (Leiopotherapon plumbeus, Kner 1864) larvae under captive conditions. Larvae were reared in outdoor tanks (4 ...
Effect of dietary organic acid salts, potassium diformate and sodium diformate on the growth performance of male Nile tilapia Oreochromis niloticus
- Bulletin of Fish Biology, 2011 - Verlag Natur & Wissenschaft
The effect of two organic acid salts on the production performance of juvenile male Nile tilapia Oreochromis niloticus were studied in two separate experiments. In the first trial the fish (initial size: 7.84kg) were fed ...
Nutritional evaluation of mysids Mesopodopsis orientalis (Crustacea:Mysida) as live food for grouper Epinephelus fuscoguttatus larvae
- Aquaculture, 2010 - Elsevier
The potential of mysids Mesopodopsis orientalis as live food source for grouper Epinephelus fuscoguttatus larvae was investigated. In comparison with Artemia biomass, a common live food source in larviculture, mysids ...
Daily rates of ingestion on rotifers and Artemia nauplii by laboratory-reared grouper larvae of Epinephelus suillus
- The Philippine Scientist, 1994 - San Carlos Publications, University of San Carlos
The amount of rotifers and Artemia nauplii consumed daily by the grouper Epinephelus suillus larvae was determined through examination of gut contents. The larvae (2.6 mm TL) were initially fed rotifers on day 2 and newly ...
Shell marking by artificial feeding of the tropical abalone Haliotis asinina Linne juveniles for sea ranching and stock enhancement
- Aquaculture Research, 2003 - Blackwell Publishing
A method of marking abalone (Haliotis asinina Linne) for sea ranching and stock enhancement purposes was developed. Three-month-old abalone juveniles (11.8-mm shell length, 0.28 g) were fed artificial diets for 1, 2, or 3 ...
Diet-tissue stable isotopic fractionation of tropical sea cucumber, Holothuria scabra
- Japan Agricultural Research Quarterly, 2013 - Japan International Research Center for Agricultural Sciences (JIRCAS)
To provide a basis for a stable carbon and nitrogen isotope ratio (δ13C / δ15N) analysis to determine the assimilated organic matter in sea cucumber, Holothuria scabra, diet-tissue fractionations were ...

Tryptophan requirement of juvenile Asian sea bass Lates calcarifer
- Journal of Applied Ichthyology, 2004 - Blackwell Publishing
The dietary requirement of tryptophan for juvenile Asian sea bass (Lates calcarifer Bloch) was studied. The juveniles (mean initial weight, 5.30 ± 0.06 g) were given semi-purified test diets containing fish ...
Potential use of the sea lettuce Ulva lactuca replacing soybean meal in the diet of the black tiger shrimp Penaeus monodon juvenile
- Aquaculture, Aquarium, Conservation and Legislation, 2015 - Bioflux
To evaluate the biological value of incorporating the sea lettuce Ulva lactuca meal in the diet of the black tiger shrimp (Penaeus monodon), 3 diets were fed to groups of shrimps containing two levels (15% and 30% replacement ...
Evaluation of some terrestrial proteins in complete diets for grouper (Epinephelus coioides) juveniles
- In MA Rimmer, S McBride & KC Williams (Eds.), Advances in grouper aquaculture, 2004 - Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research
This study was undertaken to determine the nutritive value of some of the more widely available protein sources in the diets for grouper juveniles, based on apparent digestibility coefficients for dry matter (ADMD) and ...
