Abstract

Two experiments were carried out in the research farm of An Giang University. The first experiment was a study 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 in 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 was 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.

    Worm composting in Vietnam

    Red wiggler worms (Eisenia species) can be used for composting kitchen scraps and organics. This species of worm “red worms” or “red wriggler” is hardy and reproduces quickly. One pound of worms consumes up to 1/2 pound of food scraps per day. Worm composting is an odor-free way to dispose of your kitchen waste. Another benefit of “vermicomposting” or worm composting is that it produces worm castings that are excellent plant fertilizer. Worm composting can be done indoors or outdoors. Where we are located near Vancouver BC, our climate is mild enough for outdoor worm composting most of the ye

    Earthworm powder as extra fish food.

    Earthworm powder as extra fish food. The optimization of protein content in earthworm-based fish feed formulation was investigated in the study Full factorial design (FFD) and central composite design (CCD) were used as a statistical tool to screen the range of the selected parameters and to optimize the process respectively Three components were combined in the fish feed formulation namely earthworm powder chicken guts and soybean waste as the protein source The optimum nutritional values were obtained at 25% 25% and 595% for earthworm powder soybean waste and chicken guts

    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

    Role of earthworm on earth.

    Earthworms are recognised as an effective and environmentally sound method of increasing the rate Earthworm production systems involving waste management are evolving and are in the growth phase where emphasis is upon marketing, inoculum and vermicast. As the industry matures there will be a need to change the marketing emphasis from “the worm as an inoculum” to “the worm as a value-added marketable product”. Very large quantities of worm products will be available if production systems are designed and managed appropriately. The integration of waste utilisation with the production of high q

    Hisashi MIHARA Hiroyuki SUMI Hideaki MIZUMOTO Tomoyuki YONETA Ryuzo IKEDA and Masugi MARUYAMA _________________________ Department of Physiology Miyazaki Medical College Kiyotake, Miyazaki INTRODUCTION The history of use of the earthworm as a therapeutic drug source for various diseases extends back for several thousand years in China and other parts of the Far East. However, practical pharmacological studies have not been performed except on lumbrofebrin as an antifebrile (1). In 1983, we reported that very strong and novel fibrinolytic enzymes could be extracted from the

    Formulating fish feed using earthworms as a protein source

    Formulated feeds are complete feeds which supply all the nutrients necessary for optimal growth and health of the fish in culture practices. In many areas of the world protein sources are scarce and for formulating aquafeeds earthworms as a protein source might provide an alternative to common used raw materials.Earthworm: Good nutrition in an animal production system is essential to economically produce a healthy, high quality product. Nutrition is critical because it represents 40% to 50% of operational and production cost. Fish nutrition has advanced dramatically in recent
