Effect of fishmeal replacement with dried red wigglers (Eisenia fetida) worm meal on growth and feed utilization, production efficiency, and serum biochemistry in Nile tilapia …

This study investigated the effect of replacing fishmeal with red wigglers (Eisenia fetida) worm meal (RWWM) in the diet of Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) fingerlings. Red wigglers worms (RWW) were culture on a vegetable by-product medium, harvested and dried to obtain red wigglers worm meal. The fish (average weight ± SE: 7.70 ± 0.06 g) were fed with seven diets (30% crude protein and 7.5% crude lipid), in which fishmeal was replaced with 0%, 5%, 10%, 15%, 20%, 25%, and 30% RWWM. The fish was reared in 1000 L fiberglass tanks in a recirculating aquaculture system and were hand-fed twice daily for 90 days. At the end of the experiment, the growth, feed conversion ratio, and energy utilization improved when feeding 15% and 20% RWWM compared with the control diet (P < 0.05). Using broken line regression between growth efficiency and feed utilization, showed the optimum level of RWWM …

Impacts of water additives on water quality, production efficiency, intestinal morphology, gut microbiota, and immunological responses of Nile tilapia fingerlings under a zero …

The impacts of commercial probiotics as water additives to the zero-water exchange system on water quality, production efficiency, gut microbiota, antioxidant, and immunological responses of Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) were investigated. Five treatments, with three triplicates, were randomly designed, where in each replicate 150 fish (100 ± 4.5 g) were stocked in 20-m3 concrete ponds. Different water probiotics were added to ponds' water as follows: T1 (Control: no probiotic added); T2 (Prozym powder Ultra ® at 0.002 g/ m3/ day); T3 (Microban aqua ® at dose 0.002 g/ m3/ day); T4 (Aquastar ® at dose 0.0015 g/ m3/ day); and T5 (Sanolife PRO-W ® at dose 0.0010 g/ m3/ day). For eight weeks, fish in each group were fed a commercial feed (30% crude protein) up to satiety three times a day. After the experimental period, dissolved oxygen in ponds' water was significantly improved, while ammonia, nitrite …

Serum Neopterin as A Biomarker For Silicosis Among Clay Brick Industry Workers

Introduction: Brick industry workers are exposed to silica dust and they are at risk of developing silicosis. Serum Neopterin is used as indicative of a pro-inflammatory immune status and it could be used as a biological marker for diagnosis of silicosis Aim of Work: To assess the environmental exposure for silica at clay brick industry and evaluate the use of serum Neopterin as an early biomarker for silicosis among silica exposed workers. Materials and Methods: A cross-section study was done on 118 individuals; 58 exposed to silica (28 workers of them were diagnosed to have silicosis) and 60 unexposed workers were used as control. The studied group was subjected to a questionnaire, clinical examination, spirometry, chest radiograph, serum Neopterin, and environmental measurements. Results: Mean values of environmentalfree crystalline and respirable silica were higher than the national and international permissible levels. Significantly deteriorated spirometry measurements were observed among exposed workers mostly among the silicotic group. The serum Neopterin median was significantly higher among the silicotic group (23.8nml) than the non-silicotic exposed (12.1nml) and control groups (3.6nml). There were significant positive correlations of Neopterin level with the silica exposure (r = 0.9), the work duration (r =0.8), and radiographic findings (r =0.7). Monitoring of serum Neopterin showed its good diagnostic capacity with cutoff value17nm/L (The area under the curve was 0.88), with sensitivity, 86 % and specificity of 87%. Conclusion: The current study results support the use of serum Neopterin as an early biomarker for silicosis …

Effects of Bacillus subtilis-fermented rice bran on water quality, performance, antioxidants/oxidants, and immunity biomarkers of White leg shrimp (Litopenaeus vannamei) reared …

The current study was carried out to assess the effects of using Bacillus subtilis-fermented rice bran (FRB) on water quality parameters, water microbial counts, growth performance, body composition, antioxidants/oxidants, and immunity biomarkers of white leg shrimp (Litopenaeus vannamei) reared at different salinities. Shrimp juveniles (0.51 ± 0.11 g) were distributed in triplicates into 27 1-m3 fiberglass tanks (1,000 animals/m3/each) and subjected to bifactorial treatments (three feeding types using FRB with three different salinity levels). After acclimation to different salinities (5, 15, and 35 g/L), under each salinity level shrimps received a 40% protein-commercial diet (100 CD) only, 50% commercial diet plus FRB (50 CD+FRB), or FRB only for 12 weeks. A half of each tank’s water in the 100 CD groups was replaced daily with new water containing the same salinity level; no water exchange was done in the other …

Potential applications of native cyanobacterium isolate (Arthrospira platensis NIOF17/003) for biodiesel production and utilization of its byproduct in marine rotifer …

To achieve strong, successful and commercial aqua-biotechnological microalgae applications, screening, isolation, molecular identification, and physiological characterizations are needed. In the current study, a native cyanobacteria strain Arthrospira platensis NIOF17/003 was isolated from the surface water of El-Khadra Lake, a saline-alkaline lake located in Wadi El-Natrun, Egypt. The cyanobacterium was phylogenetically identified by 16S rRNA molecular marker and deposited in the GenBank database (accession number MW396472). The late exponential phase of A. platensis NIOF17/003 was reached at the 8th day of growth using Zarrouk medium, with a recorded dry weight (DW) of 0.845 g L−1. The isolated strain showed 52% of protein, 14% of carbohydrate, biomass productivity of 143.83 mg L−1 day−1, 8.5% of lipid, and lipid productivity of 14.37 mg L−1 day−1. In general, the values of cetane number, iodine value, cold filter plugging point (52.9, 85.5 g I2/100 g oil, and −2.2 °C, respectively) of the isolated fatty acid methyl esters are in accordance with those suggested by international standards. Besides, applying algal-free lipid (FL) as biodiesel byproduct in the production of rotifer (Brachionus plicatilis) revealed that a 0.6 g L−1 FL significantly increased the rotifer population females carrying eggs, confirming that FL can be used efficiently for B. plicatilis production. The current study concluded that the new isolate A. platensis NIOF17/003 is a promising strain for double sustainable use in biodiesel production and aquaculture feed.

4Central Laboratories, King Faisal University, PO Box 420, Al-Ahsa 31982, Saudi Arabia 5Agricultural Biochemistry Department, Faculty of Agriculture, Ain-Shams University, Cairo, Egypt♦ Corresponding author: amansour@ kfu. edu. sa abstract The present study aimed to identify the carotenoid content and evaluate the antioxidant activities of spirulina, Arthrospira platensis (in vitro), and the effect of its supplementation to a vegetarian diet on growth performance, feed utilization, body proximate composition and physiological status of nile tilapia, oreochromis niloticus (in vivo). The carotenoid content of spirulina was identified by uplc-ms/ms and showed that trans and cis β-carotene were the major carotenoids (88.3%) followed by β-cryptoxanthin and zeaxanthin. The antioxidant activity of spirulina was determined in water and crude carotenoid extracts by 2, 2-diphenyl-1-picryhydrazyl (dpph) scavenging assay, both extracts showed a significant free radical scavenging capacity. In addition, Nile tilapia fry (0.83±0.01 g) was fed a vegetarian diet supplemented with different levels of spirulina for 12 weeks. The results revealed that the highest growth performance and nutrient utilization were recorded with 0.5% spirulina and the peak response determined at 0.63%-0.65% using polynomial second order regression. Also, the hemoglobin content improved in a quadratic regression model with the peak at 0.67% spirulina. Plasma total protein and lipid contents increased significantly with spirulina levels over 0.50%. Moreover, the aminopeptidase activities and glucose level decreased significantly with increasing spirulina levels. The current study …

The feasibility of monoculture and polyculture of striped catfish and Nile tilapia in different proportions and their effects on growth performance, productivity, and financial …

Cultivation of species of high growth rates is a key achievement of sustainable aquaculture development, with the aim of increasing animal protein per capita, maintaining food security and preserving freshwater usage. The present study was conducted to evaluate the feasibility of monoculture and polyculture of striped catfish, Pangasianodon hypophthalmus, and Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus, in different proportions and their effect on growth performance, survival, productivity, feed utilization, body composition, and financial revenue. Five experimental treatments were designed as follows: monoculture of striped catfish (100%), Nile tilapia (100%) and polyculture in different proportions of striped catfish and Nile tilapia (25%:75%; 50%:50%; 75%:25%, respectively), each in three replicates. The fish feeding regime consisted of isonitrogenous (307.80 g kg−1) and isocaloric (19.27 kJ g−1) diets for 14 weeks. The results revealed that the highest growth performance, feed utilization, survival of striped catfish were obtained in monoculture, followed by polyculture of striped catfish and Nile tilapia (in low proportions) (75%:25%). The total production per m3 reached 5.41 kg m−3 in the monoculture of striped catfish, this production decreased in polyculture by 52%, 46% and 23% with 25%; 50%; 75% of striped catfish. The gross margin significantly increased, in case of striped catfish farmed in monoculture, compared to other polyculture proportions. While the gross margin per m−3 of water was 6, 0.5, 1 and 3 $ in monoculture and different polyculture proportions, respectively. Moreover, the feed cost per kilogram of protein gain significantly decreased …
