Aquaculture with Earthworm

Two studies were conducted at the experimental farm of An Giang University, Viet Nam.

The first study on the growth of earthworms (Perionyx excavates) was a 2*2 factorial experiment with 4 replicates, in which the treatments were: source of manure (cow or buffalo) and supplementation with water hyacinth at 25% of the weight of manure (DM basis) or none. Adding chopped water hyacinth to buffalo or cattle manure led to a decrease in worm numbers and in productivity per kg DM and crude protein of added substrate. Relative growth in numbers and in weight of the worms was similar on manure derived from buffaloes and cattle. The negative effect of water hyacinth was greater with buffalo than with cattle manure. Residual compost from cattle manure was richer in N and poorer in ash than compost derived from buffalo manure. Water hyacinth added to the substrate resulted in compost with less N but more ash.

The second study included two experiments. The first experiment was on the growth performance of Marble goby and Tra catfish fed diets of trash fish and rice field prawns replaced (on an iso-nitrogenous basis) with 0, 25, 50, 75 and 100% of frozen earthworms (Perionyx excavates). The weight gains of Marble goby and Tra catfish, and the survival rate of the Marble Goby, decreased markedly with curvilinear trends as the proportion of frozen earthworms in the diet was increased (Experiment 1). The Tra catfish appeared to adapt better than the Marble goby to the frozen worms. The second experiment, which was designed to test the hypothesis that the poor growth rates with frozen earthworms were due to the low palatability of the earthworms after being frozen, confirmed the negative effects of this method of conservation. Growth rates were 4 and 2 times greater for Marble goby and Tra catfish, respectively, when they were fed fresh rather than frozen earthworms. Survival rate was 100% on the fresh earthworm diet…..Read more: Nhi_N_100909

    How To Harvest Worm?

    When to Harvest Generally, a worm bin will have produced a significant amount of good vermicompost at between two and three months along in the process. If you wait even longer, like 4-6 months, you'll have more finished looking vermicompost (it will look more like soil and have more plant-ready nutrients in it). Tip - Try harvesting early one time, then letting it go for much longer the next time, so that you can see the difference in finished product. Harvesting Methods There are several common ways to separate worms from the vermicompost in your bin. Dump And Sort It's just

    Prawn Productivity Improved When Grown With Worms

    by Alice Mitchell10 April 2015, at 1:00am AUSTRALIA - Growing prawns and worms in the same integrated system can lead to improved productivity and waste management, recent results from a Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries research project show. The two-year study is testing the concept of fully recirculating pond water from intensive prawn culture ponds through polychaete-assisted sand filters (PASF), to create sustainable supplies of prawns and marine worms. Agri-Science Queensland Senior Biologist Dr Paul Palmer announced the successful production of a

    Including Earthworm in Organic Poultry Diets

    Introduction It is common for free-range chickens to consume earthworms. Earthworms are very efficient at converting plant and animal wastes into biomass that can be used as a feed ingredient in animal production: a ton of animal wastes will produce about 100 kg of worms (Edwards, 1985). Earthworms are a good quality protein for use in animal feeds, but the practical use of earthworm meal is influenced by economics. Technology is available for large-scale production of earthworms, but separating the earthworms from the organic wastes in which they are growing is labor intensive, thus

    Partial replacement of fish meal by earthworm meal

    Full Length Research Paper Partial replacement of fish meal by earthworm meal (Libyodrilus violaceus) in diets for African catfish, Clarias gariepinus Fish meal is the most common source of protein for aqua feeds. However, the cost of fish meal is on the rise, because of its competing use as feed ingredient by other animals (livestock, ruminants etc.). It is therefore necessary to find alternatives to fish meal in the preparation of animal diets.Various workers have attempted to use other locally available cheap protein sources (e.g. plant protein, agricultural by- products, fishery

    Earthworm have many benefits. In fact, many people who eat it to cure some disease, without effects, so safe to consume. According to the experiences of people who had experienced a fever or high body temperature, with an extra ingredient earthworms eat their disorders improved. HIGH PROTEIN According to research ever done that earthworms are very high source of protein. Earthworms also contains several amino acids with a high level.
