Effects of protease enzyme supplementation on protein digestibility of legume and/or fish meal-based fish feeds

Improving protein digestibility in nutrient poor fish feeds through incorporation of dietary enzymes is expected to be achieved with protease. Understanding the role of other dietary enzymes was therefore evaluated to guide appropriate use for optimal fish growth. Protein digestibility of 30, 35, 50 and 55% crude protein (CP) diets was determined with catfish gut enzyme extract, sprouted sorghum, protease and phytase...

Haematological profile of Heterobranchus bidorsalis fingerlings fed processed Delonix regia seeds at different inclusion levels of diets

This study aimed at investigating the haematological profile of Heterobranchus bidorsalis fingerlings fed processed Delonix regia seeds at different inclusion levels of diets. Ten isonitrogenous diets (40% crude protein) were formulated with processed D. regia seed at 0% (Control), 10, 20 and 30% inclusion, respectively. The parameters analysed were pack cell volume (PCV), red blood cell (RBC), white blood cell (WBC),...
