Experimental feeding of Sydney rock oysters (Saccostrea commercialis). 2. Protein supplementation of artificial diets for adult oysters



Experimental feeding of Sydney rock oysters (Saccostrea commercialis). 2. Protein supplementation of artificial diets for adult oysters



Aquaculture, 321-2: 1-9



Sydney rock oysters (Saccostrea commercialis) were fed diets supplemented with soluble whey protein concentrate (WPC) or bacterial protein "Pruteen". In experiment 1 oysters were fed three diets containing crude protein (CP, N X 6.38) as WPC at levels of 0, 150 and 300 g/kg dry diet. Whole oyster and underwater shell weight gains decreased as the dietary WPC levels increased. The weight gain data suggest that dissolved protein is not efficiently utilised by Saccostrea commercialis.
