Defatted soybean meal and Leucaena leaf meal as protein sources in diets for Penaeus monodon juveniles
MetadataShow full item record
Penaeus monodon juveniles, mean weight 0.38 g, were fed 12 practical diets with 30, 20 or 16% Peruvian fish meal, 15 or 35% defatted soybean meal (DSM), 10% Leucaena leucocephala , leaf meal (LM), and 15% shrimp meal with and without vitamins and/or minerals. The diets contained 42-48% crude protein and 11-13% crude fat. The animals were stocked at 10 per fiberglass tank, and reared in 40 aerated seawater in a flowthrough system for 8 weeks. Growth and survival were not affected by the level of DSM but significantly decreased in prawn fed diets with LM. Feed conversion ratios of prawn were better for complete diets than those where vitamins only were added. Poor feed conversion ratios and specific growth rates were obtained when no vitamins and minerals or only minerals were added to the diets.

Growth and survival of juvenile tiger shrimp fed diet where fish meal is partially replaced with papaya (Carica papaya L.) or camote (Ipomea batatas Lam.) leaf meal Peñaflorida, Veronica Dy (Society of Israeli Aquaculture and Marine Biotechnology, 1995)Fish meal is the major protein source in shrimp and fish diets but its continuous use would make it scarce and expensive. There are, however, potential substitutes like soybean or leaf meals. Papaya or camote leaf meals ...
Evaluation of leguminous seed meals and leaf meals as plant protein sources in diets for juvenile Penaeus indicus Eusebio, Perla S.; Coloso, Relicardo M. (Society of Israeli Aquaculture and Marine Biotechnology, 1998)The potential of locally available legumes (white cowpea, Vigna unguiculata, and green mung-bean, Vigna radiata) and leaf meals (papaya, Carica papaya, and cassava, Manihut esculenta) in combination with defatted soybean ...
Growth and survival of Penaeus monodon postlarvae fed shrimp head meal and fish meal as primary animal source of protein Piedad-Pascual, Felicitas; Destajo, Warnita H. (Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center, 1978)Although shrimp head meal alone does not provide for good growth and survival, fish meal can provide high survival rate. The addition of shrimp head improves this diet. It is suggested that cholesterol present in shrimp ...
