      During the past 20 years, plant ingredients have taken over as the main constituents in feed for Atlantic salmon. This has changed the nutrient composition of the feeds, the bioavailability of nutrients and perhaps nutrient ...
    • Dietary selenium required to achieve body homeostasis and attenuate pro-inflammatory responses in Atlantic salmon post-smolt exceeds the present EU legal limit 

      Prabhu, P. Antony Jesu; Holen, Elisabeth; Espe, Marit; Silva, Marta Sofia; Holme, May-Helen; Hamre, Kristin; Lock, Erik-Jan; Waagbø, Rune (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Selenium (Se) supplementation either as inorganic or organic form was evaluated in Atlantic salmon post-smolt in vivo and in vitro. The basal diet was formulated to be low in fish meal and contain 0.24 mg Se kg−1; six other ...
    • Effects of vitamin D3 supplementation in gilthead seabream (Sparus aurata) juveniles fed diets high in plant based feedstuffs 

      Domínguez, David; Montero, Daniel; Zamorano, Maria Jesus; Castro, Pedro; Fontanillas, Ramon; Prabhu, P. Antony Jesu; Izquierdo, Marisol (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Modern aquaculture feeds tend to contain lower levels of fish based ingredients, while increasing the content of plant ingredients. However, this may alter the vitamin profile of the feeds, leading to unbalanced vitamin ...
    • A meta-analysis on the nutritional value of insects in aquafeeds 

      Liland, Nina Sylvia; Araujo, Pedro; Xu, X.X.; Lock, Erik Jan Robert; Radhakrishnan, Gowtham; Prabhu, P. Antony Jesu; Belghit, Ikram (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      A major challenge for development of sustainable aquafeeds is its dependence on fish meal and fish oil. Similarly, it is unwanted to include more plant ingredients which adds more pressure on resources like arable land, ...
