BICUDO, ÁLVARO J.A. et al. Apparent digestibility of conventional and alternative feedstuffs by hybrid tambacu juveniles. An. Acad. Bras. Ciênc. [online]. 2018, vol.90, n.1, pp.471-478. ISSN 0001-3765.

The apparent digestibility coefficients (ADC’s) of dry matter (DM), crude protein (CP), and gross energy (GE) of conventional feedstuffs (cottonseed meal-CSM, soybean meal-SBM, wheat bran-WHB, corn-COR) and regional alternative feedstuffs (common bean residue meal-CBR, mesquite meal-MES, pasta by-product meal-PBM) were determined for hybrid juvenile tambacu Colossoma macropomum × Piaractus mesopotamicus. The apparent DM and GE digestibility of feedstuffs decreased (p<0.05) as fiber content of the ingredients increased. No differences (p>0.05) were found among ADC’s of PBM and COR. The lowest CP ADC among energy sources was observed in MES; the lowest CP ADC among plant protein sources was observed in CBR. Information about the ADC’s of conventional and alternative feedstuffs for tambacu is essential to formulate low-cost diets and can contribute to regional development.
