Spray-dried haemoglobin meal, a by-product and derivative of the swine processing industry, is formed when haemoglobin is separated hygienically from pig's blood. A 120-days feeding trial using snub nose pompano Trachinotus blochii (1.01 ± 0.02 g) tested spray-dried haemoglobin meal (SHM) as an ingredient in six iso-nitrogenous (crude protein of 50%) and iso-lipidic (crude fat of 8%) diets, namely, a diet with 0% SHM (control) and five diets replacing fishmeal with SHM at 4, 8, 12, 16 and 20%. Weight gain percentage (WG%) significantly decreased (p < 0.05) when fish were fed diets with 12, 16 and 20% SHM inclusion levels. Feed conversion ratio and survival significantly decreased (p < 0.05) when fish were fed diets with 16 and 20% SHM inclusion levels. However, visceral somatic index, hepatosomatic index, condition factor and proximate composition were not affected (p > 0.05) by SHM inclusion levels. As an ingredient for pompano feed, SHM has digestibilities for protein, lipid and dry matter at 89, 78 and 45% respectively. No apparent pathological changes were observed in the intestines. However, physiological changes in the liver have been seen in fish fed diets containing 12, 16 and 20% of SHM. Based on the quadratic regression model at the maximum response of weight gain percentage, the optimum inclusion level of SHM was estimated to be 3.08% (5.87% SHM protein in the diet).

Evaluation of dietary fermented tuna by-product meal as partial replacement for unprocessed tuna by-product meal in fishmeal-based diets for juvenile olive flounder Paralichthys olivaceus Aya, Frolan; Moniruzzaman, Mohammad; Pagador, Gregoria E.; Won, Seonghun; Hamidoghli, Ali; Min, Taesun; Bai, Sungchul C. (Springer, 2022-12-06)This study examined the effects of feeding fermented tuna by-product (FTBP) on the growth, non-specific immune response, liver and intestinal morphology, and disease resistance of olive flounder Paralichthys olivaceus. ...
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 ...
Replacement of fish meal by animal by-product meals in a practical diet for grow-out culture of grouper Epinephelus coioides Millamena, Oseni M. (Elsevier, 2002)A feeding trial was conducted to evaluate the potential of replacing fish meal with processed animal by-product meals, meat meal and blood meal (4:1 ratio), in practical diets for juvenile grouper (Epinephelus coioides). ...
