Article
It is likely that Seriola spp. have nutritional requirements for long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LC-PUFAs) and are unable to meet physiological demand for these nutrients via biotransformation of C18 polyunsaturated fatty acids (C18 PUFAs). However, it is unclear whether 20:4n-6 (arachidonic acid, ARA), 20:5n-3 (eicosapentaenoic acid, EPA),...
Article
Early-life exposure to mild stressors can assist animals in coping with more stressful events in later life. This study was aimed at investigating how early stress and dietary lipid contents affect growth, hematology, blood biochemistry, immunological responses, antioxidant system, liver enzymes, and stress responses of oscar (Astronotus ocellatus)...

Phospholipids (PL) are membrane components composed of fatty acids (FA), while triglycerides (TG) are a main source of energy and essential FA. Polyunsaturated FA (PUFA), such as docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), are essential for marine carnivorous fish; thus, an 8-week experiment was performed to evaluate the influence...

This study investigated the effect of different dietary selenium (Se) sources on the growth performance, antioxidant capacity, gut microbiota, and molecular responses of the Pacific white shrimp Litopenaeus vannamei. Four Se sources (sodium selenite, L-selenomethionine, selenium yeast, or Se nanoparticles) were added to purified diets to 0.4 mg Se/...
Article
Accurate measurement of apparent digestibility (AD) is essential to characterise the nutritive value of ingredients in aquaculture. For crustaceans, current methods rely on collection of excreted faeces by settlement. Excreted faeces lose soluble nutrients through leaching, leading to an over-estimation of AD. An alternative approach is to remove f...

Intensification of the shrimp sector, also referred to as vertical expansion, has been predominately driven by consecutive incidences of global disease outbreaks, which have caused enormous economic loss for the main producer countries. A growing segment of the shrimp farming industry has opted to use production systems with higher density, biosecu...

Astaxanthin (Axn) is the most commonly used carotenoid to enhance the flesh colouration of salmonids, which is one of the key criteria perceived to reflect the freshness and nutritional quality of the product and consequently affecting its price. However, the digestibility of astaxanthin by salmonids is highly variable, ranging between 20% and 60%....
Article
At some stage, laying hen farming is likely to be subjected to sub‐optimum temperatures (SOTem) due to climate change. While egg enrichment with n‐3 fatty acids is a common practice in the poultry industry, in SOTem it has been less investigated. This study tested the effects of egg enrichment through extruded flaxseed (FLX) (180 g/kg) alone or alo...

Resumo A piscicultura brasileira se encontra em constante crescimento, sendo que 34,7% dessa produção é proveniente de espécies nativas. Dentre as espécies nativas se destacam os bagres, peixes de couro que não apresentam espinhos intramusculares e são bem aceitos pelo mercado consumidor. A presente revisão aborda a relação entre produção e pesquis...

Soybean meal has been largely investigated and commercially used in fish nutrition. However , its inclusion levels have been carefully considered due to the presence of antinutritional factors , which depending on a series of factors might induce gut inflammation damaging the mucosal integrity and causing enteritis. Several strategies including gen...
Article
Lipids rich in saturated fatty acids (SFA) and monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA) are among the alternative sources reported to maintain growth and tissue fatty acid composition and, in some cases, reducing the long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LC-PUFA) requirements. The present works aims to investigate the effects of different SFA:MUFA rati...

The biofloc technology (BFT) was proposed as an alternative to the conventional extensive and semi-extensive aquaculture production systems. In terms of expansion, conventional systems face serious challenges such as competition for land and water and environmental regulations related to discharge of effluents which contain excess organic matter, n...

Pulses have emerged as important rotation crops in Australia. Some are in demand in agricultural production systems due to their high potential market value, because of their roles as grain or forage crops, their nitrogen fixation capability, and because they provide a disease break or improve soil health. While several pulse crops have been identi...
Article
Fish oil (FO) is four times more expensive than it was 30 years ago, yet it remains the most economical source of eicosapentaenoic acid (20:5n-3, EPA), docosahexaenoic acid (22:6n-3, DHA) and other long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LC-PUFA) for aquafeeds. Although most reduction fisheries are considered well-managed and sustainable, supplies...

Article
Aquaculture production can be improved by understanding how ingredients can affect feed intake and digestion. This is an area poorly understood for many aquaculture species, including for the shrimp Penaeus monodon. To investigate these processes, we measured feed intake, the rate at which digesta moves through the gastro-intestinal tract, the chan...
Article
Fish are the main source of long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LC-PUFA, > C18) for human consumption. In general, it has been widely observed that the fatty acid (FA) profiles of farmed fish are reflective of the diet. However, the degree of tissue FA “distortion” based on incorporation of different dietary FA into fish tissues varies greatly...

Article
Channel Catfish Ictalurus punctatus reportedly require α‐linolenic acid (18:3n‐3) for normal growth. However, contradicting studies suggest that elevated dietary levels of this fatty acid might cause growth inhibition, and diets containing linoleic acid (18:2n‐6) alone or in combination with 18:0 and 18:1n‐9 may support growth as well as fish oil‐b...

Diet-to-tissue transfer of long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LC-PUFAs) is more efficient when diets contain saturated fatty acid (SFA) or monounsaturated fatty acid (MUFA)-rich alternative lipids. This mechanism, the omega-3 or LC-PUFA “sparing effect”, encourages more efficient metabolism of the limited LC-PUFAs available in terms of their i...

Until recently, use of antibiotics to enhance terrestrial animal growth performance was a common, U.S. Food and Drug Administration-approved, but controversial practice. There are no FDA-approved production claims for antibiotic drug use in fish, but it is a common misconception that antibiotics are widely used for this purpose in U.S. aquaculture....
