Feeding behaviour and digestive physiology in larval fish: current knowledge, and gaps and bottlenecks in research
Food uptake follows rules defined by feeding behaviour that determines the kind and quantity of food ingested by fish larvae as well as how live prey and food particles are detected, captured andExpand

Rotifers enriched with iodine and selenium increase survival in Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) larvae
Abstract In the present study, rotifers were enriched with iodine and selenium up to the levels found in the most abundant organisms in the natural diet of fish larvae, i.e. copepods. Cod larvae fedExpand

The Molecular and Endocrine Basis of Flatfish Metamorphosis
A significant component of aquaculture is the production of good quality larvae, and, in the case of flatfish, this is tied up with the change from a symmetric larva to an asymmetric juvenile.Expand

Post‐embryonic remodelling of neurocranial elements: a comparative study of normal versus abnormal eye migration in a flatfish, the Atlantic halibut
The process of eye migration in bilaterally symmetrical flatfish larvae starts with asymmetrical growth of the dorsomedial parts of the ethmoid plate together with the frontal bones, structuresExpand

Genetic ontogeny of pancreatic enzymes in Labrus bergylta larvae and the effect of feed type on enzyme activities and gene expression.
A newly cultivated wrasse species, Labrus bergylta, have shown great potential for use in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) farms in the battle against sea lice (Lepeoptheirus salmonis) infections.Expand

Impact of dietary selenium on methylmercury toxicity in juvenile Atlantic cod: a transcriptional survey.
Selenium (Se) and its derivatives are known to have protective effects against mercury (Hg) toxicity in mammals. In this study we wanted to evaluate whether Se co-exposure affect the transcription ofExpand

Influence of egg vitamin A status and egg incubation temperature on subsequent development of the early vertebral column in Atlantic salmon fry
The effect of egg vitamin A (VA) status and egg incubation temperature on the development of spinal disorders was investigated in Atlantic salmon Salmo salar fry. Atlantic salmon eggs were sortedExpand

A novel system to quantify intestinal lipid digestion and transport.
The zebrafish larva is a powerful tool for the study of dietary triglyceride (TG) digestion and how fatty acids (FA) derived from dietary lipids are absorbed, metabolized and distributed to the body.Expand

The effect of diet on ossification and eye migration in Atlantic halibut larvae (Hippoglossus hippoglossus L.)
Abstract Larval nutrition affects post-metamorphic phenotype in Atlantic halibut and many deformities are related to skeletal development. In a multidisciplinary study, 24,000 sibling halibut larvaeExpand

Increasing the level of selenium in rotifers (Brachionus plicatilis ‘Cayman’) enhances the mRNA expression and activity of glutathione peroxidase in cod (Gadus morhua L.) larvae
Abstract Commercially produced Atlantic cod ( Gadus morhua L.) larvae are fed rotifers, while in the wild cod larvae feed on copepods. Rotifers contain up to 30-fold less selenium (Se) than copepods,Expand
