Performance and carcass evaluation of broiler chicks fed shrimp waste meal supplemented with synthetic amino acids



Performance and carcass evaluation of broiler chicks fed shrimp waste meal supplemented with synthetic amino acids



Nigerian Journal of Animal Production 25(1/2): 17-21



104 anak broilers were reared from 7 to 56 days of age on maize-based starter and finisher diets in which 0, 33, 66 or 100% of the fish meal was replaced with shrimp waste meal (SWM). Weight gain and feed conversion ratio were reduced (P<0.05) with SWM replacing fish meal at 100% in starter and finisher phases. No significant differences were observed for feed intake among the groups. Mortality increased with an increased level of SWM in the diet at the starter phase.
