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 by-products, terrestrial animal by -products, grain legumes, oil seed plants etc.) in animal feeds. Plant protein sources have been used as alternatives in the diets of fish with some measure of success particularly grain legumes (Zhou et al., 2005; Emre et al., 2008;

Monentcham et al., 2010; Lim et al., 2011). A major setback in the use of plant proteins however, is the presence of anti growth factors. Other workers have also used other animal sources such as poultry by- product (Tucker et al., 2005; Shapawi et al., 2007), meat and bone meal (Gimenez et al., 2009) with favourable results in some cases.The use of earthworms has also been documented. Earthworms are abundant in most parts of Africa and their nutritional values have been determined. They possess amino acid profiles similar to fish (Dedeke et al., 2010a) and have been used as protein supplements in the diets of fish (Hilton, 1983; Sogbesan et al., 2007; Monebi and Ugwumba, 2013).

    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

    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

    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

    Earthworm,Cow,Grass – A big cycle!

    My sister in the cow permaculture world, uses earthworms as a handy source of protein for her cow.  I'm unlikely to follow in her footsteps since the infrastructure demands are quite high, but I wanted to share her process in case some of you are keen to give it a shot. She has a big ruber farm, in Cuchi of which she has sunk worm bins into the soil (surrounded by cinderblocks to keep the worms in place.)  He puts big sheets of plastic along the ruber line, on top she cover its to protest the ruber leaves and rain.  The bins are full of cow manure from her cow farm along wit

    Earthworm And Maggot Meals As A Potential Fish Meal Replacement

    Earthworm And Maggot Meals As A Potential Fish Meal Replacement Three meals were formulated from the earthworm (Endrilus eugineae) and maggot (Musca domestica) and fish (Engraulis encrosicolus). These meals were evaluated as a potential replacement for fishmeal. This is because fishmeal could be very expensive at times. The three meals were used in feeding the catfish (Heterobranchus isopterus) fry for 30 days. Read
