Improvement of feed pellet characteristics by dietary pre-gelatinized starch and their subsequent effects on growth and physiology in tilapiaDate: 2017-08-18 12:06:06
Tilapia are cichlids that are the second most farmed fish group in the world (FAO, 2016), and can grow well on relatively high amounts of dietary carbohydrates, e.g. 46% (Wang et al., 2005). Polysaccharides tend to be better utilized in tilapia than are mono- or di-saccharides (Shiau & Chuang, 1995) although, even among polysaccharide starches, there are some differences. For instance, dietary maize bran led to significantly better growth of tilapia than did rice bran and this is believed to be due to differences in digestibility (Liti, Mugo, Munguti, & Waidbacher, 2006).
