Copra meal is a vital feed source
MetadataShow full item record
Copra meal is a vital feed source in the Philippines. It is primarily used in the manufacture of feed for animals. Under the project, several feeding trials were conducted on shrimp (Penaeus vannamei) in low and high density systems, freshwater tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus), and milkfish to determine the effect of formulated feeds that are combined with PECM as protein ingredient. Initial trials showed promising results in reducing feed costs. As envisioned, results showed that protein enriched copra meal could be used as major protein source and replace 50 percent soybean meal in aquaculture diets without compromising the growth, production and feed efficiency.
