Dietary Protein and Energy Requirements of Group: Assessing SBM and SPC Utilization by Tiger Grouper and Establishing Baseline Nutritional Requirements for Humpback Grouper

Indicative Funding
$247,772 over 2 years
Summary
The objective of this project is to build on research commenced in 2015 and 2016 with the overarching goal of developing diet formulations containing optimal levels of soybean meal (SBM) and soy protein concentrate (SPC) ingredients for grouper. This current project phase will assess requirements for dietary protein and energy for humpback grouper, Cromileptes altivelis, and evaluate SBM and SPC Ingredients in diets for tiger grouper, Epinephelus fuscoguttatus.
Investigators
Igor Pirozzi and Mark Booth in collaboration with L Manomaitis, Levy Manalac and Jun Lim (College of Science & Engineering, NSW Department of Primary Industries, U.S. Soybean Export Council, U.S. Soybean Export Council (USSEC) and Palawan Aquaculture Corporation)

Development of Soy Aquafeeds for Grouper

Indicative Funding
$186,725
Summary
The objective of this project is to build on research commenced in 2015 with the overarching goal of developing diet formulations containing optimal levels of SBM/SPC ingredients in diets for grouper. This current project phase will specifically assess requirements for dietary protein and energy for grouper.

Review of Grouper Production Approaches and development of Targeted Soy-Optimized Diets For Key Grouper Species in Asia

Indicative Funding
$214,483
Summary
Grouper are high-value marine fish species and production is rapidly expanding throughout the Asia Pacific Region. Culture techniques for grouper vary across species, farms, regions and aquaculture systems; however, there is a lack of coherent documentation on the current state of grouper aquaculture. Most grouper farms continue to feed using low-value trash fish with extremely poor feed conversions. To address these issues a review of the current state of grouper aquaculture will be undertaken a study will be conducted to benchmark grouper nutrition to facilitate the formulation of practical soy aquafeeds as an alternative to fishmeal based diets.

Evaluation of Local and Imported Pacific Island Aquafeeds for Tilapia

Indicative Funding
$65,225 over 3 years
Summary
Tilapia are becoming an important food source for communities throughout the Pacific islands however the high cost of imported aquafeeds and ingredients makes the aquaculture of this species cost prohibitive. This project will evaluate aquafeeds formulated for tilapia using novel, low-cost, locally available ingredients in the Pacific Island countries of Fiji, Samoa, the Solomon Is. And Vanuatu. The growth and performance of tilapia fed novel diets will be compared to those fed standard diets and an assessment made on the nutritional efficacy and economic viability of these novel diets.
