Featured Issue: Zootecnia Tropical Vol.28 No.1, 2, 3 & 4

Today we are featuring Zootecnia Tropical on our blog for the first time! To those unfamiliar with the journal, you can find more information about it here: http://www.bioline.org.br/zt

Here are some highlights from vol.28, which has been recently been updated on Bioline. We decided to take highlights from articles pertaining to underwater species:

In no.1, "
Biochemical composition of the freshwater shrimp Macrobrachium jelskii (Miers, 1877) under culture conditions" by Ramírez et al. looks at the freshwater shrimp, Macrobrachium jelskii, and whether or not it has the potential to be used in aquaculture. For this study, the Macrobrachium jelskii were examined in lagoons, and their biomass, carbohydrates and lipids were assessed. For details of this study, its implications and more articles from this issue, go to: http://www.bioline.org.br/titles?id=zt&year=2010&vol=28&num=01&keys=V28N1

Macrobrachium jelskii was also studied in no.2, but this time the species was studied in a pond habitat. In "
Growth of freshwater shrimp Macrobrachium jelskii (Miers, 1877), in ponds" by Urbano et al., the aim of the study was also to assess the freshwater shrimp as a protein source for fish in aquaculture. However for this study, the freshwater fish were given two different diets and two different stocking densities. How did the two variables affect the growth of the Macrobrachium jelskii?

In no.3, the article "
Genetic evaluation of Nile tilapia in naturals conditions of low temperature" by Fortes-Silva et al. studies how the genetics of the fish can affect their body weights, and how this information can be used to create appropriate diets and feeding measures. For the complete article and related articles from this issue, go to: http://www.bioline.org.br/titles?id=zt&year=2010&vol=28&num=03&keys=V28N3

No.4 includes the article "Apparent digestibility of fishing waste silage in red tilapia (Oreochromis mossambicus x Oreochromis niloticus)" by Llanes et al. that also investigates tilapia, but this time the red tilapia species. The red tilapia species was tested to investigate its ability to digest fishing waste silage. How was the silage prepared, and what was its nutritional effect in the tilapia?
