Most of the protein sources used in tilapia feeds
have been evaluated from the biologicaland nutri-
tional points of view. Economic evaluation of such
feed inputs for tilapia has not been given enough
attention. Only a few studies have demonstrated
that, despite the fact that many of these feed inputs

produced lower biological performance than stan-
dard proteins (mainly fishmeal), cost–benefit anal-
yses indicate that they were economically better.
For example, economic evaluation of cottonseed
meal (El-Sayed, 1990), maize gluten feed and meal
(Wu et al., 1995) and animal by-product meal
(Rodriguez-Serna et al., 1996; El-Sayed, 1998) as
protein sources for Nile tilapia, brewery waste
(Oduro-Boateng and Bart-Plange, 1988) for Tilapia
busumana and cocoa cake (Fagbenro, 1988) for
Tilapia guineensis indicated that profit indices of
these protein sources were better than for FM-
basedfeeds. The authors suggestedthe useof these
sources as total fishmeal replacers for tilapia.More
work is needed to economically evaluate the other
unconventional protein sources that are commonly
used in tilapia feeds.
