Can canola meal and soybean meal be used as major dietary protein sources for kuruma shrimp, Marsupenaeus japonicus?

Results obtained in using the experimental conditions of this trial show that canola meal and soybean meal could be effectively utilized as major protein sources by kuruma shrimp Marsupenaeus japonicus. The dietary fishmeal could be reduced to only 6% (85% replacement) with a blend of canola meal and soybean meal, and supplementation of methionine, lysine, phytase and fish soluble without compromising growth, feed utilization, body composition and health of juvenile kuruma shrimp.
