Abstract:Chitosan foam can be used as a filter element for pollutants in Nile tilapia farming tanks to reduce the industrial chitin waste and value it. Another possibility is the inclusion of chitosan foam in fish feed. Therefore, this study aims at evaluating the apparent digestibility of nutrients and energy of chitosan foam for Nile tilapia. Apparent digestibility determination was carried out by the indirect fecal collection method, using chromic oxide as an inert indicator, a reference-diet and a test diet (70% re… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
