Effects of (n-3) highly unsaturated fatty acids compositions of three live prey enrichments on the survival and growth of common dentex’s larvae (Dentex dentex, L)

  The rotifer Brachionus plicatilis (S-type) and Artemia were fed with three enrichment types (Nanno: Nannochloropsis occulata, CEP: Commercial Enrichment Products: Selco® from INVE Aquaculture NV and CLO: Cod Liver Oil emulsion). The polyunsaturated fatty acid composition in the regimes was tested to estimate survival and growth of common dentex larvae. During rotifers feeding...

Physico-chemical changes and diastatic activity associated with germinating paddy rice (PSB.Rc 34)

  Paddy rice was germinated for 0, 5, 7 and 9 days period at 32°C. Physical and chemical characteristics, as well as diastatic activity were determined using standard methods. Drastic decreases in thousand-grain weight, starch content, and viscosity of malt paste with significant increases in sugar content and diastatic activity were observed during germination (P<0.05). The 9-day malted rice...
