Other chapters look at metabolism (how fish maintain life processes, the effects of water temperature, the energy costs of movement, and the utilization of metabolizable energy for maintenance) and growth (conditions affecting growth, potential growth rates, growth on reduced food rations and a summary of dietary energy requirements).

The replacement of proteinaceous food by high ruminal degradability foods rich in RUP might increase the metabolizable amino acid flow to the animal (NRC, 2001).
2015) reviewed nutritional values of copra, palm kernel, and rice byproducts and reported that dry matter, and CP contents were slightly lower in CE than in CM; and acid-hydrolyzed EE, and digestible and metabolizable energy concentrations were greater in CE compared with CM.
Fruits and vegetables are abundant in potassium salts of metabolizable anions, including citrate and malate, which consume hydrogen ions when metabolized, having an alkalizing effect.
The gas production values were used to calculate for organic matter digestibility (OMD), metabolizable energy (ME) and net energy of lactation (NEL) as described previously by Menke and Steingass (1988).
The diets with corn, wheat, boncalite, corn gluten meal, soybean meal (except from the last trial ration), CM, SM, meat-bone meal and vegetable oil were formulated to be isocaloric and isonitrogenous in order for them to include approximately 24% of crude protein and 2900 kcal/kg of metabolizable energy in accordance with the animals' NRC (1994) requirements.
Between weeks 22 and 45, the breeders were fed either a high, standard, or low energy diet (3000, MEhl; 2800, MEsl; 2600, ME11, kcal/kg AMEn [apparent metabolizable energy, corrected for nitrogen], respectively).
