San Martin, D.
Two trials were conducted to test the effect of partial replacement of fishmeal by two brewery industry by-products, yeast and spent grain, included in isoproteic and isolipidic diets for gilthead sea bream (Sparus aurata), having in mind the commercial availability of these by-products. According to the obtained results, the inclusion of up to 30% brewers' spent yeast and 15% spent grain in the feed for gilthead seabream gave similar results in terms of growth, food conversion and fillet final composition to a feed with fish meal as the main protein source and show a protein digestibility of 89–95%. Taking into account that these by-products are produced in large quantities in Europe, they can be a potential source of protein to reduce the use of plant proteins or fish/animal by-products (trimmings) and increase the sustainability of both sectors, brewery industry and aquaculture.
