NEWS BRIEFS

JAPAN - Japan plays catch-up in inland fish farming
Japan\'s seafood processors are beginning to shift their business focus from catching fish from the sea to inland fish farming as new technologies and legal revisions make this kind of aquaculture more appealing. Companies such as Maruha Nichiro and Nippon Suisan Kaisha, or Nissui, soon expect to begin commercial shipments of inland farmed fish, including salmon, and a general trading company is following suit.

Microbial biomass (Novacq™) stimulates feeding and improves the growth performance on extruded low to zero-fishmeal diets in tilapia (GIFT strain)
Worldwide tilapia production is rapidly growing and becoming increasingly reliant on the provision of cost-effective sustainable formulated feeds. We assessed the capacity for various inclusion rates of the microbial biomass-based ingredient Novacq™ (0%, 2.5%, 5%, 10%) at the expense of wheat flour to improve growth performance in diets at 10% fishmeal (FM), as well as the growth response at 5% and 0% FM, with or without the addition of 10% Novacq™ in iso‑nitrogenous (CP = 34.5–36.1%) extruded diets for GIFT tilapia fingerlings. A total of 540 fish (mean weight ± SD: 11.4 ± 1.8 g) were reared for 6 weeks on 8 experimental diets and a commercial benchmark diet (6 replicate tanks on each diet) in a recirculated freshwater system. All extruded diets containing Novacq™ outperformed the benchmark commercial diet. Total replacement of fishmeal (0% FM) with soybean meal resulted in a significant decrease of around 14.5% in daily weight gain (P < .05), but 50% replacement (5% FM) did not significantly affect weight gain (P > .05). Weight gain increased in parallel with increasing inclusion rates of Novacq™, with weight gains of 7.8%, 23.6% and 34.5% in relation to an isoenergetic and isonitrogenous control diet, at 2.5%, 5% and 10% Novacq™ inclusion, respectively. Novacq™ at 10% in diets containing 5% and 0% fishmeal also significantly increased the growth performance of tilapia, producing a net improvement in weight gain of 19.5% and 15.5% against the 10% fishmeal control diet, respectively. Feed intake mirrored the growth trends. A 10% inclusion of Novacq™ resulted in approximately 33% increase in feed intake at all levels of fishmeal inclusion. Daily feed intake measurements, similar FCRs (1.05–1.18) and nutrient retention efficiencies (Protein RE = 37–46%; Energy RE = 23–30%), indicated Novacq™ principally stimulated feeding with no adverse effect on nutrient use. The use of Novacq™ as a feed additive can more than compensate for the negative impact of fully eliminating fishmeal and is likely to improve the sustainability value of tilapia diets.
