Evaluation Of Plant And Animal Products / By Products As Alternative Protein Sources To Fish Meal In Tilapia Diets

ABSTRACT

The study was conducted to develop practical diets in Tanzania for Nile tilapia using fish meal (FM), soybean meal (SBM), cottonseed meal (CSM), sunflower seed meal (SFSM), freshwater shrimp meal (FSM) and blood meal (BM). Eleven isonitrogenous (30g 100g-1 ), isolipidic (10g 100g-1 ) and isoenergetic (18 kJg-1 ) test diets were prepared; the control diet (FM) used FM (22%) and SBM (30%) as the major sources of protein. In the test diets, FM was fixed at 5%, while the inclusion of SBM, CSM and SFSM varied as follows; SBM diets contained SBM at 20(SBM20), 25(SBM25) and 30(SBM30). CSM diets contained CSM at 15(CSM15), 20(CSM20) and 25(CSM25) and SFSM diets contained SFSM at 10(SFSM10), 15(SFSM15) and 20(SFSM20). Blended diet (BLEND) contained CSM and SFSM at 10% and SBM at 5%. Chemical composition was determined using standard method (AOAC, 2002). A total of 330 fingerlings with an average weight of 3.5 g were stocked at rate of 10 fish per 20 L tank. Dietary treatments were in triplicates in complete randomized design. Fish were fed for eight weeks and once a week were weighed and ration adjusted accordingly. Collected data was analysed using descriptive statistics and one way ANOVA at p
