Abstract: Commercial de-fatted groundnut oil cake (GNC) and rapeseed meal (RSM) were fermented using the fungus, Aspergillus niger to evaluate for carcass amino acid, fatty acid and minerals in Penaeus vannamei after 45-days. Fermented GNC and RSM was included at 100 and 75 g/kg by replacing fishmeal in test diets. A total of 180 shrimps (3.12±0.09 g) were distributed randomly into nine 500-L oval-shaped fiberglass tanks (1.31x0.64x0.73m) (20 shrimps per tank) with three replication for each dietary treatment. The results revealed that shrimp fed fermented ingredients had no effect on carcass amino acids and poly unsaturated fatty acids in particular, eicosapentaenoic and docosahexaenoic acids. Calcium was significantly (p<0.05) increased in test groups than those fed a control. The present results concluded that the fermented ingredients could be used as a potential substitute for fishmeal in the diet of P. vannamei, hence they would not have any negative effect on carcass micronutrients.
