The objective of the present study was to evaluate replacement of white fishmeal by soybean
meal in practical diets for Black Sea turbot (Psetta maeotica) at levels of 0, 10%, and 20%. The
diets were fed to triplicate groups of juvenile Black Sea turbot (initial body weight 18 g) for 60
days. At the end of the trial, there were no differences in growth performance, feed utilization,
and nitrogen retention between the control group fed 100% fishmeal and the experimental
groups fed 10% or 20% soybean meal. In conclusion, 20% inclusion of soybean meal can allow
reduction of white fishmeal by up to 14%, leading to savings on fishmeal protein.
