shrimp fish meal replacement


Fish meal is used in marine shrimp feeds because it is high in protein, highly digestible and is an effective
feed attractant. Reasons for current interest in its replacement include irregular availability, variable quality,
perceived contribution to deterioration of fisheries, potential for adulteration, contamination with
hydrocarbons and biological pathogens, and increasing cost. Growth trials were conducted with juvenile
Litopenaeus vannamei to evaluate modifications in nutrient supplementation/restriction of a basal fish meal
replacement formula at the 50% replacement level. Trials compared growth and survival of shrimp fed a
basal control feed to experimental feeds in which crystalline amino acids (CAA), oil and lecithin, blood meal
and specific minerals were modified. Improved or similar growth relative to the control feed were shown
with reduced levels of CAA, removal of menhaden oil, inclusion of a lower level of lecithin, and maintenance
of blood meal and mineral supplements at their basal levels. This information was used to develop a
generalized fish meal replacement formulation for marine penaeid shrimp using readily available partiallypurified
ingredients. Low- and high-marine animal meal feed formulations are compared.
