Body length and body weight of juvenile turbot (Scophthalmus maximus) fed with emerging protein sources


This study examined the growth response of juvenile turbot (Scophthalmus maximus) to diets with graded fishmeal (FM) replacement with plant, animal, and emerging protein sources (PLANT, PAP, and MIX) in comparison to a commercial-like diet (CTRL). The feeding experiment was carried out from April 2019 to July 2019 in the Centre for Aquaculture Research (ZAF) at the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine research in Bremerhaven, Germany. The juvenile turbot (Scophthalmus maximus) were purchased from France Turbot (L'Épine, France) and acclimated to the recirculating aquaculture system (RAS) for 2 weeks prior to starting the 16 weeks experimental trial. To elucidate the effects of the protein sources and the level of FM replacement on the growth performance, in this study, a diet with a balanced mixture and higher level of FM replacement was included. Fish were weighed to 0.2 g precision and measured in length to 0.5 cm precision every 4 weeks.
