Performance, digestibility efficiencies, gut and liver morphologies of snub nose pompano Trachinotus blochii fed spray‐dried haemoglobin meal as protein substitute for fishmeal

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. ...
Replacement of fish meal by animal by-product meals in a practical diet for growout culture of grouper (Epinephelus coioides) Millamena, Oseni M. (Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research, 2004)This study was conducted to develop compounded feeds having a low content of fish meal for juvenile grouper and as an alternative to trash fish feeding. Epinephelus coioides juveniles were stocked in 36 units of 250-litre ...
Defatted soybean meal and Leucaena leaf meal as protein sources in diets for Penaeus monodon juveniles Piedad-Pascual, Felicitas; Catacutan, Mae (Asian Fisheries Society, 1990)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 ...
