Net energy evaluation system for fish feed (Sep 2017 - Sep 2021)
Background: To provide fish with feed meeting their energy requirement, it is important to know the net energy (NE) value of aquaculture feed, which is partially contributed by three key macronutrients (i.e. protein, lipid and carbohydrate). To facilitate this evaluation, we need to develop the NE system, which can perform effectively across various factors (i.e. species, weight, environment).
Objectives: This project aims to assess if species, weight and environmental factors have any effects on the NE feed evaluation system.
