Abstract

This study investigates the impact of fishmeal replacement by soybean meal (SM) and improved SM known as EnzoMeal (EZ) on fish growth performance. The SM and EZ were used in five experimental diets: fishmeal (600 g/kg) as the control diet, 50% fishmeal replaced with soybean meal (SM50), 50% fishmeal replaced with EnzoMeal (EZ50), 100% fishmeal replaced with soybean meal (SM100) and 100% fishmeal replaced with EnzoMeal (EZ100). Fish in the control group gained the most weight, followed by those under the SM50 and EZ50 diets, while the least weight gain was observed in fish fed the SM100 and EZ100 diets. The specific growth rate (SGR) was higher in the control, but was not different between fi..
